KINGSTON, Jamaica – Bethune-Cookman outgoing senior, Kemar Clarke, concluded his 2011-12 competition season, Saturday, while also opening his international career, with an appearance and sixth-place finish in the Jamaican National Olympic Trials.
Saturday at Kingston’s National Stadium, Clarke advanced through the preliminaries of the 110m hurdles with a time of 14.07 seconds at the Jamaican Olympic Trials, moving on despite a less than ideal start to the race.
Later in the day, he returned to action in the event finals, recording a time of 14.11 for a sixth place overall finish.
“It was a great experience for Kemar,” said Bethune-Cookman Head Coach Donald Cooper, “in addition to great exposure for the program and university.”
The trials officially finishes the 2011-12 year as well for Bethune-Cookman athletes. Given the great strides that the Wildcats made during the season, coupled with a strong recruiting class, 2012-13 is looking up for Bethune-Cookman.
