Casey Jemmott-Boyce will be up first at the Scotiabank Junior Calypso Monarch Semi-finals in association with IGM Stage Lighting. 

She leads off the 7-12 age category. In the 13-18 category Kymorhi Trotman will be in position No. 1.

When they hear the opening strains at the Lloyd Erskine Sandiford Centre on July 8 at 7 p.m. it will be pure pace to the finish to determine who will be lining up for the final leg.

There are 12 competitors in the 7-12 category and 13 in the 13-18 category, and two new monarchs will be crowned. (NS)
