Press Class Two for speed

first_img The absence of Helps, RenÈe Medley, Sashalee Forbes, Carmelita Griffiths and Jeanine Williams, and the possible deployment of St Jago teammate Shanice Reid to the 400m leaves defending girls’ Class One 100m and 200m champion Natalliah Whyte in a league of her own this year. Helps, Reid, Medley and Forbes, Griffiths and Williams were second, third, fourth and fifth, sixth and seventh in the Class One 100m final last year. Together, those circumstances force fans to look to Class Two for quality depth and mass speed. Calabar’s Dejour Russell and Tyreke Wilson, first and second in the 100m, both return. Wilson will want to add the Class Two title to the Class Three version he won over Russell in 2014, but the big boy will want to repeat. If their starts are better than they were last year, fast times are possible. The best group of speedsters are probably in the girls’ Class Two category. Defending champion Shellece Clarke of Edwin Allen has been winning since her Class Four days, but her hand could be full at Champs this year. Not only must she cope with last year’s Class Three winner Kimone Shaw of St Jago, she probably will have company from Sheneil English. In Class Three, English beat both Shaw and Clarke at 200 metres while attending Hydel High. Now she is Shaw’s teammate at St Jago and missed the 2015 season of Champs eligibility because of the switch. Since then, the smooth running English has reached the World Youth 200m final. Recently, she opened her 2016 with a trip over 400 metres. Shaw is the best starter of the three, but the other two are great finishers. The last time they all met in a Champs 100m, the order was Clarke – English – Yanique Dayle of Hydel – Shaw. That was two years ago. All have improved, and a run at Helps’ Class Two record of 11.50 isn’t out of the question. – Hubert Lawrence has attended Champs since 1980 With Michael O’Hara and Shauna Helps gone a year early from Class One, the search for speed might settle in Class Two when ISSA-GraceKennedy Boys and Girls’ Championships arrives in March. That’s where Calabar’s potent sprinters dominated last year on the boys’ side. Edwin Allen did likewise amongst the girls but may have challengers this year. O’Hara, Edward Clarke and Raheem Robinson, the top three from the Class One 100 final are gone. So is Okeen Williams who was fifth. That should leave the way clear for Raheem Chambers, St Jago’s former Class Two and Three 100m winner and Nigel Ellis of St Elizabeth Technical who has already shown promise over 200 metres this season. If Jevaughn Matherson of Kingston College bounces back from a wretched 2015 campaign, he could be a threat. He broke Chambers’ Class Three record, and when the St Jago speed merchant set the Class Two record of 10.29 seconds in 2014, Matherson was a splendid second in 10.37, a fine time for a first-year Class Two athlete.

The mortgage arrears were over €40,000.Another house was described as a ‘buy to let property’ that had fallen into mrotgage arrears and the owners agreed to the house being repossessed.The third property repossessed was one in the East of the County , where the owner had been declared bankrupt in Northern Ireland and owed over €100,000 on mortgage repayments to the bank.A total of 43 cases came before Geraldine O’Connor and there are over 200 to be heard between now and October.

Defining matches

first_imgNEXT BLOCK ASIA 2.0 introduces GURUS AWARDS to recognize and reward industry influencers Leo Austria was on his way to oversee San Miguel Beer’s practice on Thursday morning and told the Inquirer the same message he hopes to drill into the Beermen’s heads on the eve of a crucial PBA Philippine Cup clash with back-to-the-wall Blackwater.“This game is very important. Actually, our next two games will be very important,” Austria said over the phone, referring to their 4:30 p.m. clash with the Elite at Cuneta Astrodome on Friday and their tussle with red-hot Alaska on the road in eight days.ADVERTISEMENT And San Miguel will go into its last four games still without high-scoring point guard Alex Cabagnot and back-up power forward Gabby Espinas.There’s still no timeline on Cabagnot’s return, with his injury still “to be evaluated in the next two weeks.”San Miguel is leading the pack with a 6-1 card, with Alaska and Magnolia tied for second at 6-2. The Elasto Painters are the only other team with an outside chance of a twice-to-beat bonus with a 4-3 record.Austria believes that eight wins would mean “an 85 percent chance” of nailing a quarterfinal bonus, but he said that they must get to eight wins or more—and must beat Alaska to get there—to avoid complications in the tiebreak, if ever.“It would be frustrating to fall into ties and losing there,” he said.ADVERTISEMENT John Lloyd Cruz a dashing guest at Vhong Navarro’s wedding Brace for potentially devastating typhoon approaching PH – NDRRMC Arellano, San Beda eye Finals slots Read Next AFP official booed out of forum Leo Austria, SMB wary of ‘more experienced’ Hotshots ahead of PBA Finals rematch PLAY LIST 01:33Leo Austria, SMB wary of ‘more experienced’ Hotshots ahead of PBA Finals rematch01:28’Walang bigayan’: Expect all-out war between sister teams Magnolia, San Miguel01:33San Miguel will only get better01:29Police teams find crossbows, bows in HK university01:35Panelo suggests discounted SEA Games tickets for students02:49Robredo: True leaders perform well despite having ‘uninspiring’ boss02:42PH underwater hockey team aims to make waves in SEA Games01:44Philippines marks anniversary of massacre with calls for justice01:19Fire erupts in Barangay Tatalon in Quezon City LATEST STORIES Frantic footraceBlackwater, at 2-5, is expected to make its final push for a playoff slot. Unlike those caught in the middle of the standings, the Elite do not have the luxury of playing for position.Instead, the hard-fighting crew of coach Leo Isaac are in a frantic footrace to stay out of the bottom four.Only the top eight teams after the end of the elimination round will make it to the playoffs and as it stands, Blackwater is outside that circle.While the Beermen are trying to salvage a top two spot, NLEX and Meralco clash in the second game at 7 p.m. looking for wins to stay in the running for playoff berths.With a 3-4 record, the Road Warriors still have a chance to salvage a place in the middle of the pack and get a fair chance in the quarterfinals by falling into a best-of-three series.Led by rookie Kiefer Ravena, the league’s No. 2 overall pick, the Road Warriors started the season on the wings of optimism validated lofty predictions by winning their first two matches.But NLEX fell into an inexplicable slump, dropping its next four games to fall out of the race for one of the top two berths. The Road Warriors got back in a big way by bringing down another struggling favorite in Barangay Ginebra but still need to collect wins to stay in the playoff hunt.Meralco, on the other hand, are at 2-5 and would need nothing less than a sweep of its last four games to entertain thoughts of making it past this round for the first time under multititled Norman Black.Struggling anew with a lack of a legitimate big man plus injuries to key players, Meralco has failed to build on the momentum of a run to the Finals in the recent Governors’ Cup.
