Safin Wills of Jamaica College (JC) winning the Class One boys long jump with a leap of 6.90m at the JC-Danny Williams Purewater Track and Field meet at JC yesterday.

KINGSTON College's Aryamana Rodgers and Kevona Davis of Edwin Allen High produced the outstanding results on the track at yesterday's 24th staging of the JC-Danny Williams Purewater Development meet at Jamaica College.

Running in the second track event of the day, the boys' open 5000 metres, Rodgers won in a very fast 15 minutes 25.96 seconds. His teammate, Shane Buchanan, clocked 15:33.04 for second while Jamaica College's Dethroy Stewart was third in 17:06.72.

Davis who took the sprint double in Class Three at last year's ISSA Boys and Girls' Championships, gave an early indication that she would be the one to beat once again with a fast 11.84 seconds to win her 100 metres heat.

It was, overall, a good day for Edwin Allen's girls. Tiana Clayton topped the Class Four 100m in 12.12 ahead of St Jago High's Brianna Lyston, 12.27. Clayton's teammate, Serena Cole, was third overall in 12.40.

Edwin Allen's Gabrielle McDonald had a double victory in Class One. She was fastest in the 100m in 11.78 and also topped the 100m hurdles with 14.37 seconds.

Holmwood Technical's Shaunette Allison, Michae Harriott, and Britney Campbell also had good wins. Allison won the Class Two 100m hurdles in an impressive 13.83 seconds. Harriot was best in Class Two 100m in 11.79, and Campbell led the way in the Class Two 800m in 2:18.60.
