Murphy heads 70-member Carifta team
Natoya Goule, Kemoy Campbell, Shericka Jackson and Jazeel Murphy are some of the main athletes listed in Jamaica's 70-member team to participate at the Carifta Games, which will be held in The Cayman Islands from April 3-5.
The hugely talented Murphy of Bridgeport High will defend the sprint double in the Under-17 boys' division, while Jackson will be looking to secure a 200-400 double in the girls' equivalent.
Goule and Campbell have completely dominated middle-distance running at the meet in recent years and should easily maintain that trend.
Holmwood's principal, Paul Bailey, is chef de mission, while ISSA's competition officer, George Forbes, is the team leader. Dotlyn Daley is the assistant manager and Dr Gwyn Jones is team doctor and physiotherapist.
David Riley is the team's head coach and will be assisted by Andrew Kidd, Rahmsomn Edwards and PierAnn
The team leaves on April 1 and returns on the 6th.
All selectees should contact the Jamaica Amateur Athletic Association immediately with passport information.
