Russell and Davis capture U-20 100m titles at Carifta Trials

Calabar's Dejour Russell and Kevona Davis of Edwin Allen secured two of the 100m finals contested on Saturday's second day of competition at the junior Carifta Trials at the National Stadium. Russell produced a powerful come-from-behind performance to land the under-20 boys 100m final in 10.46 seconds. Davis was quite comfortable in landing the girls equivalent over Michae Harriott of Holmwood Technical.

Elsewhere, US-based Brianna Williams who is coached by Trinidadian Olympian Ato Boldon, captured the Under-17 girls 100m while Holmwood Technical's Sasheeka Steel was disqualified from this event for false starting. The Under-17 boys crown went to Terrique Stennett of Kingston College in 10.71 seconds. It was a one-two for Hydel in the Under-20 girls 400m where Shiann Salmon finished ahead of Charokee Young.

The boys event saw Kingston College Deshawn Morris chasing down Calabar's Anthony Carpenter to win in a time of 46.01 seconds with Carpenter doing 46.15 and Petersfield’s  Antonio Watson, the World Under-18 champion third in 46.45 seconds.

Calabar had a one-two in the Under-20 boys 1500 metres which went to Javonte Williams over Kevroy Venson. The three day meet ends on Sunday where the 200 metres, 100 metres hurdles and 400 metres hurdles finals will all be contested.
