(CNS): More than 400 students from all twelve public and private high-schools across the Cayman Islands will be battling it out this week at the 2014 Inter-secondary Track and Field Meet which starts Tuesday. The annual inter-secondary sports meet has become a highlight of the Islands athletic calendar and this year John Gray High School enters as the current champions. Young athletes also use the meet as a qualifier for regional and international competition coming up later this year as well as local bragging rights. Expected standouts include Taj Lewis in the 400m and 800m, Keira McLaughlin in the 800m and 1500m, and Jacob Scott in the high jump.

Tuesday’s programme will focus on track semi-final races, as well as finals in the 800m, 3000m and 110m hurdles. The day will run from 8.30am-4.00pm Field events are set for Wednesday 8.30am – 3.00pm.  The remaining track finals will take place on Thursday.

    Correction: "this year John Gray High School enters as the current champions". Clifton Hunter is the current champions. I am sure they are quite miffed at this inaccurate reporting.
