Hackett shines at NCAA tourney
Wednesday, May 27 2009

TEXAS: Trinidad and Tobago Semoy Hackett and The Bahamasí Sheniqua Ferguson were crowned sprint double champions in their respective collegiate division championships at the weekend.

Hackett sealed the womenís 100 metres and 200 metres double at the NCAA Division II Championships in Texas, while Ferguson accomplished the same feat at the National Junior College Champion-ships in Kansas.

The 20-year-old Hackett produced personal bests of 11.18 seconds and 22.95 seconds to complete a successful opening collegiate season.

Haiti and St Augustine Collegeís defending champion Barbara Pierre finished second in both races on her way to personal bests and national records. She ran 11.22 for second in the 100m and 23.48 for runner spot in the 200m.

Earlier in the championships, Pierre posted two Haitian national records ó 11.18 in the semi-finals of the 100m and 23.28 in the semis of the 200m.

Jamaicaís Janika Martell ran 11.36 for third in the 100m, while defending 200m champion Nandelle Cameron of TT finished third in the 200m in 23.55.

Hackett, Cameron and Martell were also key members in Lincoln University winning both relays and the womenís overall championships. All three helped the 4x100m team clock 44.32 seconds for gold, while Hackett and Martell joined Jamaicaís Anna-Kay Campbell on the winning 4x400m team, timing three minutes, 39.45 minutes.

Also at the championships, Jamaicaís Shermaine Williams took the womenís 100m hurdles in 12.95 ahead of fellow Jamaican Rosemarie Carty (13.40).

Campbell won the womenís long jump with 6.32m and finished second in the heptathlon with a personal best tally of 5343 points, while Bahamian Melinda Bastian threw 48.29 metres for second in the womenís javelin.

Elsewhere, Jamaicaís Kawayne Fisher of Lincoln University clocked a personal best of 10.15 seconds to win the menís 100m over Barbadian Ramon Gittens (10.17, PB) and another Jamaican Kemour Bruce (10.27).

Jamaican Leford Green ran a fast 20.66 for second in the 200m and 46.26 for third in the 400m, behind countryman Dane Hyatt, who was second in 45.77.

There were also impressive performances at the Junior College Championships in Hutchinson, Kansas, as Caribbean entries dominated.

Southwest Mississippiís Ferguson dismissed two solid fields to win the 100m and 200m dashes on her way to being named female track Athlete of the Meet.

The 2008 World Junior 200m champion first posted 11.48 seconds to win the womenís 100m ahead of Jamaicaís Shawna Anderson, at 11.65.

Ferguson completed the double when she clocked 23.54 seconds to take the half-lap in front of Rebecca Alexander (23.90) and Jamaican Taneisha Baker (23.93).

She collected her third gold in helping Southwest Mississippiís 4x100m relay team to a 44.43-seconds first place position.

Bahamian Latoy Williams, who beat US Virgin Islandsí favourite Tabarie Henry in the 400m, was one of two athletes selected as male track Athletes of the Meet.

Williams ran a personal best of 44.73 to take the event in an exciting finish with Henry, who was second in a national record of 44.77. Jamaicaís Riker Hylton was third in 45.95.

Former World Youth silver medalist, Barbadian Ryan Brathwaite won the menís 110m hurdles in 13.61 seconds, with his countryman Shane Brathwaite (of no relation) finished fifth in 14.28.

Shane returned to take third in the 400m hurdles in 51.57, with The Bahamasí Carlyle Thompson finishing one place ahead of him in 50.36.

Other standouts on the menís side were Jamal Wilson of The Bahamas who won the menís high jump with 2.10m, as well as Trinidadís Kyron Blaise, who won the triple jump with a 15.74m mark over fellow national Dellon Williams (15.66m) and Grenadaís Kurt Felix (15.22m). (CMC)
