With berths in the next week’s finals at stake, athletes have everything to aim for when the semi-finals of the 2011 Pine Hill National Primary Schools’ Athletic Championships get underway this morning at the National Stadium.
From 10 o’clock there will be non-stop action as the schools push to secure their best ahead of Monday’s finals.
And nowhere will the action be as hot as the Under-13 boys’ sprints,
In the 100 metres, the clash will be among Jamahl Burke (12.75) of Williams Industries West Terrace, Milton Lynch’s Matthew Clarke (12.87) and Fabian Leon (12.94) of Eden Lodge Primary.
Even with a time of 13.31 seconds, Shaquille Ifill of All Saints can’t be counted out.

Ranicha Sargeant of Wesley Hall has the fastest time of 13.50 seconds among the girls, with Nashandi Clarke (14.00) of George Lamming second. Bayleys Alisha Best leads the 200m field with 27.86 from Sharon’s Rosette Hoyte (27.88).
