St Catherine – Edwin Allen High School’s Class One sprinter Gayon Evans and Holmwood Technical boys’ 4x800m relay team made it three-from-three in the Milo Junior Grand Prix Series after winning their events at last Saturday’s 31st Milo Western Relays at GC Foster Sports College in Angels, St Catherine.

The Grand Prix Series was introduced this season and offers $500,000 to the winners of the boys and girls 100m and 4x800m races in five meets through the season.

The schools from where the winners emerge will get the prize monies with $100,000 going to the 100m winners and $150,000 to the relay winners.

Evans beat her schoolmate and World Junior Championship teammate Kaycea Jones in the 100m race on Saturday, in a meet record 12.06 seconds to 12.08 seconds, while Herbert Morrison’s Class Two runner Shavine Hodges took third place in 12.19 seconds.

With two races to go, next week’s Gibson Relays at the National Stadium and the GC Foster Classic, Evans leads with 27 points, six more than Jones who has been second in all three races so far. Manchester High’s Leslie-Ann Mitchell who was fourth last week is third on 15 points.

Manchester High’s Brandon Tomlinson, who finished second in the 100m race to Munro’s Rolando Reid, leads the boys’ section with 25 points, followed by Reid and Albert Town’s Andrew Fisher both on 17 points.

The Holmwood relay team won at Western Relays to add to their wins at the STETHS Invitational in January and the Jamalco meet in Clarendon and lead with a perfect 36 points.

Holmwood, who were second to Manchester Striders in the open category, ran 7:40.28 seconds, their fastest time in the series and lead Bellefield by six points with Edwin Allen High net on 27 points.

Manchester High’s girls have, however, surpassed Holmwood Technical High as the leaders in the girls’ section after winning back-to-back races at Jamalco and Western Relays.

Thanks to a courageous anchor leg from national junior representative Natoya Goule timed at 2:04.78 seconds,
Manchester won the 4x800m race at Western Relays in 8:50.17 seconds, also the fastest this season to be on 34 points, two more than Holmwood Technical who had won at the STETHS meet.
