It’s Edwin Allen yet again but Kingston College dethrones Jamaica College #Champs2022

Many time winners, Edwin Allen Comprehensive High, held off the dangerous Hydel and their 200M record-breaking phenom Briana Lyston to win the 2022 ISSA Girls [Athletic] Championships.  With the new Champs format having many finals on days 2 and 3, and fewer on Friday (day 4), Edwin Allen held the lead coming into the final day and, with runners like the Clayton Twins, seemed poised to retain the trophy.  However, Hydel gave all they had, valiant efforts, which came up short.

On the boys side, it was Kingston College (372 points) over Jamaica College (300.83 points). Entering the final day 62.3 points behind leaders Kingston College (KC), defending champions Jamaica College (JC) never threatened on the final day though they racked up a lot of points.  However, KC just keep racking up points as well to keep them at bay and winning their 33rd Boys Championships.

Congratulations to the youngsters who came out and performed well.

Also, big ups to ISSA, the coaches, officials, announcers, commentators, and others who made the event a successful one.

It’s Edwin Allen again but Jamaica College NOT Kingston College #Champs2021

Many time winners, Edwin Allen Comprehensive High, held off the dangerous St Jago to win the 2021 ISSA Girls [Athletic] Championships.  Edwin Allen held the lead coming into the final day and, with runners like the Clayton Twins, seemed poised to retain the trophy.  However, St Jago and Hydel gave all they had, valiant efforts, which came up short.  However, it was the first time 3 schools surpassed 300 points at Girls Champs.

On the Boys side, it was Jamaica College (328.5) over Kingston College (313).  Initially JC had 240.5 to KC’s 311 but, because of a lane violation, the winning JC 4x400M team were disqualified and lost 12 points.  Many time winners KC held a tiny lead coming into today’s (Saturday May 15, 2021) final day but, JC had representatives in more finals and they outperformed their KC counterparts. JC and KC also made it the first time 2 boys schools surpassed 300 points at Boys Champs.

Congratulations to the youngsters who came out and performed well even with the format changes and no spectators due to the Covid pandemic.

Also, big ups to ISSA, the coaches, officials, and others who made the event a successful one.

KC and Edwin Allen win Boys & Girls Champs

In a great performance, Kingston College has won the 2019 ISSA Boys Championships (Champs 2019) over second place Calabar by almost the same margin as they lost to Calabar last year while Edwin Allen won the Girls Champs 2019 by 7 points over Hydel.

Boys Champs 2019

Not quite the 32-year drought ended by winning the Manning Cup last year, KC was winning Champs for the 32nd time and first time since 2009.  KC also broke the Champs points record with 396.5 points in winning.

Girls Champs 2019

On the girls side, it was Edwin Allen Comprehensive High that continued their dominance, this time with a narrow 7 point win over the impressive Hydel school.  It was their 6th straight title. Hydel protested one of the Edwin Allen relay wins but it was called as an Edwin Allen win.

Congratulations to Edwin Allen and Kingston College and all the great performances by athletes of all the schools.Great champs or was it marred by too many false start controversies?
