A showcase of athletic excellence

The Inter-Secondary Schools Boys and Girls Championships, better known as "Champs", the proving grounds for future champions, is considered one of the most exciting and competitive junior championships in the world. It is an athletic competition between all the island's high schools and is held in Kingston Jamaica during the month of March every year. It is an unbridled display of passion, guts, determination and a can do attitude by young athletes, truly capturing the essence of the Jamaican people.

Penn Relays

A story of perseverance

In 1964 Kingston College sent Lennox Miller, Rupert Hoilette, Alex McDonald, Jimmy Grant, Tony Keyes, and Lennox Tulloch to participate in the Penn Relays. That was the first team from Jamaica to compete at Franklin Field. Despite facing numerous obstacles the team won the sprint medley and placed second in the mile relay, paving the way for the success we see today from numerous Jamaican high schools at Franklin Field.
