Pan-American Games champion Fedrick Dacres dominated the discus at the Charlie Fuller Field Events Memorial on Saturday.However, it was a busy Warren Barrett Jr who had the biggest day on the expansive Manchester High School campus. Barrett continued his fine form in the shot put with a resounding win in the boys’ Class One event and competed fiercely in the men’s competition.Afterwards, the Calabar schoolboy said his main target is the World Junior Championships.He started the day with a loss in the Class One discus to schoolboy rival Sanjae Lawrence of Petersfield High.Then Dacres took centre stage. Defeated last week at the JC/Purewater meet by UWI training partner Traves Smikle, Dacres took charge in the first round with a spin of 59.20 metres and then pulled away with throws measured at 61.71 and 62.41 metres, respectively, in the second and third rounds.The 2014 Commonwealth Games finalist, Chad Wright, was second with a fourth-round mark of 58.27 metres. Smikle was third after a first throw of 57.42.”My first meet was a bit off, but I pulled it through today a bit,” said the discus ace.He expects to improve as the season goes on.”We’ve just started technique work, so I’m not really as efficient as I’d want to be right now,” he reflected.Asked about a recent knee injury, he said, “It’s getting better, but it’s not where I want to be.”With World Championships bronze medal winner O’Dayne Richards watching, Wright won an entertaining shot put with a smooth spin of 18.25 metres. Dacres edged Barrett for second by two centimetres, 17.66 to 17.64 metres.BARRETT-LAWRENCE CLASHThe Class One boys’ shot had been billed as a clash between Barrett and Lawrence, but the Calabar boy was off the mark quickly with a first-round blast of 18.47 metres.Lawrence, who put the shot 18.74 in Montego Bay on the previous Saturday, improved steadily to 17.85m, but that wasn’t even enough for second, as Kyle Mitchell hit the jackpot with a booming last-round shot of 18.48 metres.Fortunately for Barrett, he closed with big throws of 18.75 and 18.75 metres late in the competition.Barrett believes the throws against Wright and Dacres affected him in the Class One event.”It probably held back my performance in the Class One shot at 18.75, but I’m pleased, regardless,” he said when his long day of throwing was complete.”Over the World Junior qualification again, I can’t complain,” he summarised.He first surpassed the World Junior qualifying distance of 18.25 at the JC meet when he won the Class One shot with a massive last-round throw of 19.40 metres.Asked what his main target was this year, Barrett was succinct.”World Juniors 2016. World Juniors,” was his smiling response.In other events at the Memorial, Janelle Fullerton of St Jago and formerly of Edwin Allen took the girls’ Class One shot with a winning put of 14.64 metres. Tamoy Housen of XLCR won in Class Two with a best of 12.91 metres. Ardenne High’s Oggary Martin cleared exactly 2.0 metres to triumph in the boys’ Class One high jump and Faithlyn Irving of Holmwood spanned 5.19 metres to win the Class Three long jump for girls.
