Munro Lead Charge For Western Champs Glory

 
Paul Clarke, Gleaner Writer
WESTERN BUREAU:

After 18 finals and two newly established records in the boys' eliminations for this year's Hanover Credit Union Western Champs at St Elizabeth Technical High School, Munro College lead the way with 165 points ahead of Petersfield, 117.5, and defending champion STETHS, 111.5.

A battle royal looms over the marquée sprint events of the 2013 County of Cornwall Athletics Association Western Championships, with the final to be held at the Montego Bay Stadium in Catherine Hall on Saturday.

Three of the best boys in the 100 and 200m events will line up against each other, with Munro's Delano Williams leading the pack; along with Green Island's 2011 World Youth Champion over 100m, Odail Todd (10.58), and Okeen Williams of STETHS, who also ran a quick semi-final to enter the final with the third fastest time, 10.63.

Gawain Williams of Herbert Morrison (10.68) and his namesake Delano, a Turks and Caicos native, also impressed in the semi-final of the blue-riband event, securing the fastest qualifying time of 10.55.

Williams also clocked the fastest time in the 200m, 21.66, without breaking sweat, with Todd the next fastest, 21.80, and Herbert Morrison's Gawain Williams third in 21.90. The trio were the only Class One athletes to run below 22 seconds.

"I just wanted to secure qualification for Saturday's final and I succeeded in doing that. It felt okay, and now I look towards the final. I am ready for whoever may come and I am certain I can take it," said Todd.

The final will be completed by Gremieko Whitelocke (Green Island), Denval Daley and Julio Edwards STETHS, Kemoy Vacianna (William Knibb) and Graham Jamu of The Manning's School.

The girls' eliminations will take place today at Irwin High, beginning at 9:30 a.m., while the finals will take place on Saturday at the Montego Bay Sports Complex.
