RECORD BREAKING PERFORMANCE AT CENTRAL

TWO WINS AND A RECORD
MCTF produced two wins and a record breaking performance at the 2010 Central Hurdles and Relays Meet held at GC Foster. Jodi-Rae Blackwood took the U20 400mH event in a record time of 54.04 and Patrick Campbell (pictured left) won the U20 110mh in a time of 14.84. Blackwood, still relatively new to the event, (his 5th ever time over the long sticks) showed good promise last year when he clocked 52.65 to place fourth at Champs in his second ever 400mH final.

Other notable performances came from the mile relay "B" team that finished a close second to a Holmwood-based team in a time of 3:17:35. The "B" team ran Dexter McKenzie - Rolando Reid - Kaneil Harrison - Jodirae Blackwood.

MCTF will next Compete at the STETHS Invitaional in Santa Cruz, St. Elizabeth on January 30th.

BALANCED RESULTS AT KIRKVINE 2010

NEW TALENT RISES TO THE TOP
MCTF had two top three finishers at Kirkvine 2010. First year Class II middle distance runner Jason Lewis (pictured left) placed second in the 800m with a time of 2:06:70s and Delano Williams, also in Class II, placed third in the 400m with a time of 51.8s. Other notable performances came from Tevin Wilson in the Class III 400m (5th, 55.50s), Kaneil Harrison in the Class II 400m (5th, 52.20s), Giovanie Mowatt in the Class I 800m (7th, 2:04:10) and Jason Lewis in the Class II 1500m (7th, 4:39:70s).

Jason Lewis and Giovanie Mowatt are late entrants to the sport and have developed particularly well this season. Both Lewis and Mowatt took top ten places at the Western Cross Country Championships this past November. Credit must be given to coach Neil Harrison for reviving the Inter-house Cross County Championship at Munro as both athletes were discovered during the competition.

The senior mile relay team will make its 2010 season debut this weekend when MCTF competes at the 2010 Central Hurdles and Relays Meet on January 23rd at GC Foster College.

A ROCKET START AT JC 2010

HARD OUT THE BLOCKS
Munro got off to a strong start for the track and field season with five winning performances at the 2010 JC Invitational. Record breaking performances by throwers Emmanuel Oniya and Jevaughn Shaw were the key highlights of the meet for MCTF (Oniya is pictured left) . Shaw threw 46.47m to win the class II discus and Oniya's put of 17.45m to win the class I shot also qualifies as the best ever performance in the discipline by a Munro athlete. Other excellent openers came from Delano Williams in the class II 100m (1st, 10.65), Giovanni Mowatt in the class I 1500 (1st, 4:24:06) and Wendrico Seymour in the class I High Jump (1st, 1.90m).

The team will next compete at the JAAA/Puma Development Meet at Kirvine on Saturday the 16th.
