concluded 123


Penn Relays held April 27-29, 2017 in Philadelphia, USA

and at the Racers Grand Prix meet held June 10, 2017 at the National Stadium.

UTech, Ja sent a contingent of 25 student athletes to the 2017 Penn Relay

Carnival. The athletes competed in both the traditional 4 x100, 4 x400M relays,

100M sprint, 110M hurdles and field events such as long jump, shot put, high

jump and discus. A number of the athletes are first year students and so the team

is a relatively new one. Despite this, credible performances were given with some

athletes setting personal records.

Ronald Levy came out on top in his individual event – 110M Hurdles and Michael

Campbell was able to secure second place in the 100 M dash. Both women’s

relay teams gave noteworthy performances winning in their respective heats.

Shanika Bryan’s 1.71m jump in the high jump was the best field result. The team

coached by Stephen and Paul Francis consisted of the following student athletes:

Derriann Hill
