MEXICO - Team Bahamas picked up three medals Sunday at the CAC Senior Championships in Morelia, Mexico. Beginning the medal collection was Tamara Myers who stole the gold from Avanna Alexander of T&T with a final leap of 13.18m in the triple jump. This is Tamara's first senior national team so this medal is a great achievement on her behalf.

The women's 4x100m team scored a bronze medal behind Jamaica and Trinidad with a time of 44.08. The team consisted of Tayla Carter, Cache Armbrister, Debbie Ferguson-McKenzie, and Nivea Smith. These ladies did an excellent job! This was Tayla's first senior national team.

The men's 4x100m team swept the gold medal away in grand style, finishing way ahead of the field with a time of 38.77. The team consisted of Adrian Griffin, Shavez Hart, Trevorvanno Mackey, and Jamial Rolle.
