The first medal won the night was Gold by Nathaniel Thomas in the boys 11-12 50 metre backstroke race. After establishing himself as the favourite from the morning with his national record swim of 29.99 he won Gold in a time of 30.36 .That win was almost a second faster than the Silver medallist. It also gave him the Golden Double as he also won this event at the CARIFTA Games in The Bahamas earlier this year in 31.64. It is also the first medal Jamaica has won in the event for over a decade.

As expected in the girls 11-12 100 metre butterfly the national record of 1:07.22 set by Sabrina Lyn was not expected to survive beyond today. And it did not. In a very good race new ground was again broken for Jamaican swimmers as 11-12 girls swam faster than 1:07 seconds. The Gold would go to Lyn in yet another national record time of 1:05.69 and nearly the fastest time ever done by an English speaking girl in that age group. The Silver went to Bermudan star Elan Daley in 1:06.12 and teammate Zaneta Alvaranga won the Bronze in a personal best of 1:06.29. Daley set the Championship record in the morning of 1:05.55 which equaled her national record and the fastest time ever done by an English speaking girl in that age group. Lyn came very close to taking that accolade for herself. In copping Gold she landed the regional Golden Double as she had won the event at CARIFTA . The last time Jamaica won a medal in this event was 2007 when Kendese Nangle won the Bronze.

Heading into this meet Thomas had a number of close misses with the national record the boys 11-12 record of 1:04.27 held by Ramon James. He would have no such close call in the final of the event. He would win the Silver in a new national record of 1:03.65 just behind Panamanian winner Sebastian Lares 1:03.47. He again broke another decade old medal drought in the event.

In the 18 and over event Kelsie Campbell resisted a strong Challenge from Puerto Rico’s Patricia Casellas to win Gold in a new personal best of 1:03.23 to 1:03.65. That was just off the Championship record of 1:03.18 by Puerto Rico’s Debra Rodriquez. That is the first medal won by Jamaica since 2005 when Tamara Swaby won the Silver medal.

The mixed quartet of Zaneta Alavaranga, P’aige Lewis, Joshua –Daniel Alleyne and Nathaniel Thomas proved yet again they are the best sprint freestyle combination in their age group regionally. They took the 200 metre freestyle relay in a record time of 1:49.70.that bettered their morning mark of 1:51.59. This adds to the CARIFTA 400 mixed freestyle relay crown they won in April.

In a very tight final in the girls 50 metre backstroke Angara Sinclair just missed with a 4th place finish and new national record of 30.55.

Competing in the 50 metre backstroke Thomas became the first 11-12 swimmer from Jamaica to break the 30 seconds barrier. He topped the qualifiers with his new age group mark of 29.99. That swim is not far off the 2011 Championship record of 29.83 set by Panamanian Olle Harrison. The old Jamaican record of 30.25 was set by Olympian Timothy Wynter in 2009.He would combine talents with Zaneta Alvaranga, P’aige Lewis and Joshua-Daniel Alleyne to set a new national mark in the 11-12 mixed 200 metre freestyle relay with a time of 1:51.59. That time was also under the championship record of 1:54.99 set by Barbados in 2015. The team will be the second seed heading into the final as Bermuda set the new record at 1:51.42.

In the 15-17 girls 50 metre backstroke Angara recorded a big personal best of 30.75 to lower the 2009 national record of 30.85 held by Kendese Nangle.

In Nathaniel’s next event ,the 100 metre butterfly he qualified second fastest with a time of 1:04.63 close to his personal best of 1:04.39 and the 11-12 national record of 1:04.27 set by Ramon James on Nov 18,1995.

 

In the 11-12 girls age group Sabrina Lyn and Zaneta Alvaranga qualified third and fourth respectively with times of 1:07.42 and 1:07.87 respectively.

Yet another high quality Mayberry Swimming Championship was held on Friday April 28, 2017 at the National Aquatic Centre. This was evidenced by the number of records that fell on the day. Many of the records that were broken were set by the returning members of the 2017 CARIFTA swim team that returned from The Bahamas less than two weeks earlier.

In the 11-12 age group it was Nathaniel Thomas of Campion College and Zaneta Alvaranga of Immaculate Conception High School who accounted for the new standards.

In the boys category Thomas shattered the 2016 record of 27.65 by Wolmerian Kyle Sinclair to become the first 12 and under boy under 27 seconds at the meet with a swim of 26.71. Thomas, the CARIFTA 2017 Gold medallist in the event continues to track the national record of 26.29 set by former Kingston College and national standout Brad Hamilton. It would be the same in the 50 metre butterfly when he crushed the 2005 Championship record of 29.75 former Campion College and Jamaican age group star Jason Adams. With his record swim of 28.94 he became the first 12 and under boy under 29 seconds at the Mayberry meet. In his sights for 2017 will be the 2009 national record of 28.33 set by another former Campion college student Olympian Timothy Wynter .On his drive for 5 Gold medals he also won the 200 metre freestyle in personal best 2:20.38 and was a part of two record breaking relays. Campion set the mark of 1:59.41 in the 200 metre freestyle relay and then 2:16.32 in the 200 medley relay.

Alvaranga, who is the regional champion in both the 50 metre butterfly and 50 metre freestyle stamped her class at the high school meet. She won the 50 metre butterfly event in a quick 29.18 not far off her national and CARIFTA mark of 29.05.That performance crushed the 2013 meet record of 31.34  of another Immaculate Conception swimmer Angara Sinclair. It also stands as the fastest 50 metre butterfly time recorded by a girl at the Championship Zaneta is already faster than the 13-14 national mark of 29.57 and not far off the 15-17 standard of 28.87 held by Olympian Alia Atkinson. She was the only girl under 30 seconds at the meet.

In the 50 metre freestyle she lowered the 2012 meet record of 28.30 by Campion College’s D’Agaene Clarke to 28.15. That time was again the fastest time recorded by a girl at the meet. Alvaranga would complete the record trifecta when she lowered the 2016 record of 1:03.84 by Campion College’s Emily MacDonald with a 1:03.58 effort.  In her Golden Mayberry performance she would take the 50 metre backstroke in 34.39.Zaneta would also swim her signature butterfly to help her school to a record time of 2:24.10 in the 200 medley relay. The other members of that team were Imani Salmon, Alexis Leyow and Callier Maxwell.

The final night of competition on Tuesday April 18 at the Betty Kelly-Kenning Aquatic Centre in the pool events was a very successful one for Team Jamaica .The team swept all the girls 200 freestyle relays, the 11-12 ,13-14 and 15-17 age categories. This is the first time that all the girls 200 metre freestyle relays were swept by one nation in over a decade. The last time was at the 2005 CARIFTA Championships in Curaçao by a powerful French Antilles team.  In addition to that all the relay teams won in both new CARIFTA and National record times except for the 15-17 girls team that were outside the CARIFTA record time. The girls in the 15-17 were none the less outstanding having swept all the relay in their age group the 200, 400 and 800 freestyle relays as well the 400 medley relay. That was the first time one nation has dominated the 15-17 age group in that fashion in almost a decade. The last time was the 2008 CARIFTA Championships in Aruba by strong Bahamian team that included Olympian Arianna Vanderpool-Wallace. Nathaniel Thomas ensured the Jamaican boys were represented on top of the podium as he crowned himself the fastest 11-12 boy in the CARIFTA region. The final day medal haul was Four Gold, Two Silver and Three Bronze medals for an overall medal tally of 12 Gold, Eight Silver and 10 Bronze medals for 30 medals for the Championship. The best medal total since 2014. The team also equalled their best Gold medal total of 12 in a decade which they achieved at the Kingston Championship in 2013.Team Jamaica placed sixth overall with 530.50 points. The tally for personal bests increased to 92 with 17 new personal standards on the last day with 21 top eight performances.

The team of Britney Williams, Angara Sinclair, Bryanna Renuart and Annabella Lyn flexed their muscles to win the 800 metre freestyle relay in a new National and CARFITA record time of 8:50.53. That Gold medal winning performance made it a perfect 3 for 3. The old national record of 8:56.38 was set in 2016 by the team of Kelsie Campbell, Bryanna Renuart, Shaun Johnson and Annabella Lyn at the CARIFTA Championships. That was also the last time the 15-17 girls topped the event. The old regional record was held by the 2014 Aruban team of Ginayla Arends, Olympian Daniella Van Den Berg, sister Andrea Van Den Berg and Rebecca Maduro. The 15-17 girls accounted for CARFITA record number Four and National record  number Seven with their win. Speaking on behalf of her team anchor Lyn had the following thoughts

“I am really proud of myself and the whole team. We went in the race with little expectations we just expected to try our hardest and everyone  do what we had to. In the race we realized we could we win this .It was an amazing feeling to have all those people behind you pushing you on. Doing the anchor leg I knew all my teammates were behind me pushing me to the record and the Gold medal”.

She crushed her old national record by more than half a second to beat the field convincingly and touch the pads in a new personal best, NATIONAL record and CARIFTA record time of 29.05. That bettered the old Championship record of 29.09 .Guadeloupe’s Naele Portecop. That is the first Games record of the Championships for Team Jamaica and was the 3rd age group record for the squad.
