ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI – Virgin Islands' athletes abroad may be missing out on all the track meets at home but they continue to impress on the College and High School levels as the sport gears up to move from Indoor to Outdoor seasons.

On the College scene

Tynelle Gumbs opened her outdoor season at the Central Arizona College’s Throwers Pentathlon on Saturday March 14, 2015 with a Discus Throw personal best of 42.16m among her five events where she scored 3400 points to place second. Twin sister Trevia was fifth with 3039, but added three meters onto her previous Discus Throw best with a 37.77m effort.

Eldred Henry scored 3449 for a win, highlighted by a 41.89m Hammer Throw measurement, the No.2 BVI mark on the All Time List. 

S Augustine’s sophomore Khari Herbert, competing at the NCAA Division II Indoor Championships in Birmingham, Alabama, was seventh in the 400m in 48.04 seconds, after running a personal best of 47.92 in the prelims.

High School action

Cary High School Sr Lakeisha “Mimi” Warner, competing in the New Balance High Schools Nationals in New York, ran her 400m in 57.24 seconds.

At the Trinity Prep Invitational in Winter Park, Fla., Montverde Academy Tahj Malone cleared the bar at 6’2” to win the High Jump, while teammate June Kinkead ran a personal best of 12:02.25 in the 3200 meters.
