Fatima College Track Athletes Excel at Relay Championships and Zonals 2013

Relay Championships

As the busy athletics season continues, our Fatima boys continue to produce outstanding performances. At the National Relay Championships held on February 7th, 2013 the team retained its top 3 ranking among all-male schools after medalling in each age group division. The boys in gold and blue impressed in the under-14 4x200m and 4x100m; under-15 4x200m; under-17 4x100m; and in the under-20 4x100m and 4x400m.

At the under-14 level, the team of David Callender (Form 1-1), Kion Benjamin (Form 1-1), Elisha Taylor (Form 1-4), and Orlando Gomez (Form 1-2) won a bronze medal in the 4x200m event. In the 4x100m race Benjamin, Callender and Taylor were joined by Jonathan Creese (Form 1-1) to earn 2nd spot.

Two more bronze medals were added by the under-15 and under-17 boys. Jeremiah Garcia (form 2-2), Jodian Blackman (Form 1-1), Joshua McMillan (Form 2-3) and Jordan Casimire (Form 1-1) did us proud in the under-15 4x200m. Whilst in the under-17 4x100m relay, Jordan Moses (Form 3-3), Xavier Mulugata (Form 4-3), and Justin Phillip (Form 3-4) just missed out on earning silver.

Our most senior athletes in the under-20 division brought home two more medals to take the total count to 6. Quarter-milers Breon Mullings, Brandon Brown, Nahshon Rullow, and Akil Olliverrie (all from Form VI) finished third in their race. Fatima College retained its #1 ranking in the 4×100 as Dwight Thomas, Abraham Bowen, Breon Mullings, and Alexander Prevatt raced home in a time of 43.64 seconds on a slow Ato Boldon stadium track.
