Fans at last weekend’s JAAA/Jamalco Development meet saw a lively battle between Edwin Allen High and Holmwood Technical High in the 1500 metres events.

The fastest time came in Class Three, courtesy of Rushana Dwyer of Edwin Allen. Dwyer won in 4:53.34 seconds. Even though, the times were slower in the higher classes, the racing was close. Kara Grant outkicked Chrisanni May of Holmwood to clinch the Class One title in 4:59.54 with May not far off at 5:00.08. The tables were turned in Class Two as last year’s Boys and Girls Championship double winner Cemore Donald of Edwin Allen was beaten in a close finish.
