XLCR Eagle Demarco Bennettt underscored his immense talent when he put down a dominant performance in the Class 2 Boys 400m Final on Thursday at the ISSA Grace Kennedy Boys & Girls Athletics Championships. Running out of lane 7, Bennett produced a well-executed race to power past his two main rivals in the home stretch, completing the stadium oval in 46.91 for a new PB and school record. Gregory McFarlane, in his first year in the class, earned a valuable point for the Eagles’ #Top5 effort when he finished 8th in the race. Congratulations to them both.

Demarco will take to the blocks again later tonight (Friday) at 8:55 pm to compete in the 400mH as he seeks the rare double.

Rojay Robertson contributed another 6 points to the Eagles’ cause when he completed the gruelling 10-event decathlon in 5th Place, enabling the XLCR Eagles to complete the day in 5th Place with 45 points after 15 events scored.

Congratulations to Rojay and his coaches!

Meanwhile, the Lady Eagles, in their quest for #Top5 status, had valuable contributions from Shelley Ann Taylor, who finished just outside the medals after coming 4th in the Long Jump Class 2. A great effort from her, given her injury-plagued season. Also contributing to the Lady Eagles’ goal of finishing in the top 5 were Breanna Brown and Diandra Kelley, who both finished 8th in their respective 400m finals. The Lady Eagles are currently in 8th Place with 23 points after 16 events scored.
