Maggotty High School in St Elizabeth will host the 2017 County of Cornwall Athletics Association's (COCAA) Cross Country championships, set tentatively for mid-November, as the high school track and field season gets underway in western Jamaica.

Stephen Smith, president of COCAA, made the announcement at a meeting held at Godfrey Stewart High School in Savanna-la-Mar, Westmoreland, where plans were discussed for the season.

The Cross Country is set for either November 17 or 24, Smith said, adding that he will meet with the school's physical education departments to finalise the date.

Meanwhile, the First Chance Meet that is to be hosted by Herbert Morrison on January 6, is to have electronic timing for the first time, while the STETHS Invitational, set for January 27, will add the 200 metres race to the schedule.

Previously, only the 100m and 400m sprint races were contested at STETHS, but the organisers have decided to add the half-lap race this year.
