St. Jago High School girls are down to compete at Saturday’s (14 January) VA Showcase meet in Virginia, United States.

St. Jago, the first Jamaican school team to run indoors, will contest the Invitational 4x200m.

“We at The VA Showcase are very excited to be a part of history. And even more excited for that history to be happening in Virginia. St.Jago’s coaches and those who made the introductions for us can not be thanked enough for helping make this happen.
Our goal behind this is to create an atmosphere and field of competition moving forward that rivals The Penn Relays but for indoors. ” – Nolan Jez, Meet Director
