Thumbs up First shot fired in battle for World's Best HS track Champs

100+ years of performance...and still going strong. More Fiya!!

Athletes in good nick at JC Track & Field meet

BY SHERDON COWAN Observer staff reporter cowans@jamaicaobserver.com

Sunday, January 08, 2017



Isheka Binns of The University of the West Indies makes a big heave during the women’s shot put open at the JC/Purewater/R Danny Williams Track and Field Development meet at Jamaica College yesterday.



It may be too early to say that the gauntlet has been thrown down by a number of athletes, who announced themselves in no mean order with some creditable performances at the season-opening Jamaica College/Purewater/R Danny Williams Track and Field Development meet yesterday.

The athletes, a number of whom are gearing up to defend their respective titles at the ISSA Boys’ and Girls’ Championships in March, signalled good early-season form at the 24th staging of the meet in which Ruel James was honoured for his significant contribution as a coach to the Old Hope Road-based school and the country.

Four records were broken up to press time, two of which were registered by former Manchester High standout thrower Isheka Binns.

The long-awaited installation of a running track at Kingston College (KC) is well under way and principal Dave Myrie is expecting the Regupol synthetic surface to be ready by the end of February.

The groundwork for the track, which is set to cost just over US$400,000, has begun at KC’s Melbourne Campus on Elletson Road.

“So far, so good and I am quite pleased with how things are progressing and we are on target,:” he told the Jamaica Observer yesterday.

“The end of February is realistic unless something comes up. I think we needed something like this long time,” said Myrie.

KC’s major athletics rival Calabar High completed a world-class running track at their Red Hills Road base in January 2016. .

Our obsession with high school sports championships and the type of budgets the top schools are spending each season has long gone past the point of sanity in my view.

Total madness!

What kind of investments have gone into their IT labs, their robotics labs, their bio labs? Do they schools have wi-fi? Are the teachers being properly compensated? I could go on and on.

High school is not about sports first.

How do you tell a kid that have talent and his school has no track, no real coach but a PE teacher, and no great track program not to transfer to these schools?

...but Islandman: Those who wish to pour money in sports should not be denied same....just as those who wish to pour money in academic pursuits should not be denied same!

It is clear investments in education will only grow. The only question is on and about the ability of leadership to expand and accelerate the investment...to get 'it' done and to manage the investments!

Well since you asked....

The Calabar after school robotics program resumed today. The boys are enjoying the program much more with the addition of eighteen computers.
Here Sir.
