ST GEORGE’S, November 9, 2015 – Adrian Thomas of Bishop’s College in Carriacou was the most outstanding performer despite a poor turn out in a developmental meet for throwers organised by the Grenada Athletics Association (GAA) on Saturday.

An official of the meet acknowledged that schools and clubs affiliated to the GAA were informed about the event but few athletes showed up at the La Sagesse Playing Field.

Thomas won the discus, javelin and shot put throws in the Under-18 boys’ category in the first of seven meets in preparation for the 2016 track and field season including the CARIFTA Games to be staged in Grenada next March.

Thomas, the 2015 CARIFTA Games silver medallist, won the discus with a throw of 44.94 metres and also copped the javelin (51.00m) and shot put (15.89m).

Three other CARIFTA Games medallists won their respective events including Anderson Peters, Josh Boateng and Candesha Scott.

Peters, the reigning Under-20 Javelin gold medallist, easily won the event with 66.81m while Scott, who copped the bronze at the CARIFTA Games, finished with the top throw of 44.67m.

Boateng, a silver medallist in St Kitts, threw the discus at 49.90m to win the event in the first meet.

The next meet is scheduled for Saturday at the Roy St John Playing Field in Tanteen which will cater for jumpers, followed by a meet for track and throws at Progress Park, St Andrew on November 28.

Meets are also scheduled for December 5, 12 and 19 and the final event on January 9.
