Edwin Allen to dominate at Gibson - Dyke

February 23, 2018
Members of the Edwin Allenteam celebrate after winning the Girls Open 4x800 metres relay at the Gibson McCook Relays held at the National Stadium last February.

Michael Dyke, coach of reigning ISSA/GraceKennedy Boys and Girls' Champ-ionships female champions Edwin Allen, said that he is expecting a dominant performance from his school at tomorrow's Gibson McCook Relays at the National Stadium.

Dyke told Star Sports yesterday that he is confident that his school will do well in most of the classes at the event.

"I am expecting my team to perform well in most of the relays, because we are expecting to do very well in Class Three, Class Two, and Class One," said Dyke, whose team won three relays at last year's event.

 

EXPECTING BATTLE

 

"I think that Class Four is going to be a battle with everybody because most of the top schools are evenly matched," he said.

"We are also expected to do very well in the 4x800m and 4x200m, and the sprint medley is a new event, and so, all round, I am expecting a solid performance from my school," Dyke said.

The Clarendon-based institution has been in fine form this season, and already retained their Central Champs title on Wednesday at GC Foster College.

Edwin Allen will be seeking their fifth straight hold on the Girls' Champs title, and Dyke said that their preparations have gone well despite a few setbacks.

"Coming off Central Champs we have to be careful, but I am expecting good performances on Saturday (tomorrow)," he said.

"We had some initial setbacks with the weather because we had a lot of rain this year, but I think that we are pretty much on course in terms of where we want to be at this point of the season. Things are working out according to plan," Dyke said.
