KC recruits Hughes, the region’s fastest junior

Pan Am Junior and Carifta Games Under-20 100m champion Zharnel Hughes will be a student at Kingston College (KC) when the new school year begins on September 2.

The Anguillan sprinter, who has been awarded a scholarship to attend the IAAF’s Regional High Performance Training Centre (HPTC) in Kingston, will wear the Purple and White jersey when the new track and field season runs off in January.
 
Nikki Miller, Administration Secretary at the North America, Central America and Caribbean Athletic Association, confirmed to Trackalerts.Com that Hughes will still be a member of the HPTC while attending KC.
 
“He will start school at Kingston College next week,” confirmed Miller, who said she is only awaiting the final confirmation in writing from Kingston College. She also said she spoke to the school’s principal Dave Myrie in Moscow and he assured her everything was okay for Hughes to start in September.
 
Born 13 July 1995, Hughes will only have one year at Champs. Hughes won last weekend’s Pan Am Junior Championships in 10.31. He had earlier, in March 2013, won the Carifta Games Under-20 100m in 10.44. In 2012, he won bronze at Carifta Games and silver at the CAC Junior Championships.
 
The former Albena Lake-Hodge Comprehensive School student, Hughes trains with Racers Track Club, the home of Usain Bolt, Yohan Blake and Warren Weir and has Myrie as one of its directors.
 
Meanwhile, KC, according to Trackalerts our sources, has secured the services of another Clarendon top middle distance runner in Delano Rochester, who was a close second in the boys Class 1 1500m at Champs 2013. Brian Smith, last year, left Clarendon College, also for KC.
 
Both athletes, according to the Inter-Secondary School Sports Association (ISSA), can only run at Champs next year if they are admitted in 6th form at the school.

very true,one of the reason some of these schools keep dominating champs and pen relays is  that they buy the best talent from a lot of smaller schools, St Jago, Vere tech etc most of these schools have big sponsorships like Puma.
PUMA takes over sponsorship of KC track team

PUMA also sponsors the following high school teams:
•   St. Jago Boys
•   St. Jago Girls
•   Wolmer’s Boys
•   Wolmer’s Girls
•   Jamaican College
•   Calabar
•   Munro
•   University of West Indies

they will always dominate as long as they have more support and better athletes.
