Excelsior High Lady Eagle Shanice Love, is the new Jamaica National Junior Record holder in the Discus Throw. Shanice’s record effort of 54.70m was accomplished a short while ago at the MVP Track and Field Meet – An Evening of Athletics, held at the National Stadium in Kingston, Jamaica.
Congrats to Shanice and kudos to Coach Michael H. Vassell. Next up the Penn Relays Carnival.

XLCR now has two Jamaica National Junior Record holders, as Shanice joins Former Eagle, Neville Myton whose 800m time 1:46.6 done on August 15, 1964 is still the Jamaica Junior Record.
Meanwhile, on an evening when Lady Eagle Shanice Love became the best Junior Discus Thrower ever from Jamaica, with her National Junior Record 54.66m throw, both the XLCR boys and girls sprint relay teams also set school records.
The girls quartet of Tasheka Gordon, Rene Shaw, Dominique Higgins and Toni Ann Nelson ran 45.71 secs.
The boys squad of Malique Scott, Imar Tomlinson, Andel Miller and Calvin Williams posted a time of 41.15sec.
These performances came at the MVP T&F Meet held on Saturday at the National stadium and foreshadow the Penn Relays later this month.
The journey continues in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on April 28 – 30, 2016 at the Penn Relays. Hoping all Excelsorians who can, will be there to cheer on the Eagles and Lady Eagles as they represent the Green and Gold.
Those who can’t, your support is also welcome as you stay tuned…
