#“This was an important win for team as this is our first international meet of the season,” head coach Ednal Rolle said. “I have a new team with nine freshman and we needed a win. We had a few second place finishes up to that point and when it came to the relay I told the guys that we need to leave with a win and they went out and made it happen.”

#Besides leading off the winning relay team, Williamson also finished second in the men’s 400m in 49.69 seconds. Donya Roberts finished 4th in 51.17 seconds.

#“I went out 56 seconds in the first 400 and that was good but I wasn’t 100 percent out there today so I was pleased with that performance,” Joseph said.

#Jackson Ozias finished 9th in 800m event in 2:04.86.

#High jumper Jaidyn Brown finished second in the event with a best clearance of 1.7m (5-6 15/16th).
