TSSS 4 x 400m female quartet bests at Penn Relays

The Thomas Saunders Secondary School’s (TSSS)quartet of Tiwanny John, Aaliyah Jordan, Zamesha Myle and Kaylia Edwards, registered the institute’s best effort in the female 4x400m at the Penn Relays in Philadelphia, USA, recently, when they clocked 4 minutes 06.98 seconds.
In the process, the four females erased their previous best, set in 2015 – that of 4 minutes 8.15 seconds.

Three years ago, Myle, along with Kerina Hooper, Rownesha Spencer and Jasmine Robertson, had established the best time.
The new mark saw split times of 1:02.84 done by John, while Jordan clocked 1:01.93,  Myle (58.89) and Edwards, 1:03.30.
The TSSS’ females finished 135th of 611 schools that contested the event.

Also representing the TSSS at the 2018 edition of the Penn Relays were two other female athletes – Oleisha Ryan and Almarie Providence.
The male athletes’ list included Dawson Samuel, Joel Jack, Micah Glasgow, Uroy Ryan, Inglis Daniel and Keejaun Chance.

Daniel, Jack, Ryan and Samuel clocked 45.13 seconds in the 4 x 100m, to be ranked 245 of 556, while Daniel, Jack, Chance and Glasgow timed 3:30.16 in the 4 x 400, to finish 210 of 535 schools.

Making up the TSSS’ team of officials were coaches Godfrey Harry and Javed Marksman, manager Larissa John and chaperone Shirnelle Thomas.
The Thomas Saunders Secondary School’s sojourn at the Penn Relays began in 2011, when a male team represented the school.

One year later, a female team entered the fray from the Thomas Saunders Secondary and has done so subsequently, except for last year.
