Dutranoit breaks school records
Isabelle Dutranoit has built on her momentum from the Carifta Games in the Cayman Islands after setting two new school records at Suffield Academy in Connecticut last weekend.
Dutranoit was representing Suffolk Academy against two other schools and won the 1,500 and 3,000 metres in record times.
Dutranoit, who won Bermuda’s third gold medal at the Carifta Games in the 3,000, broke the school’s record and set a new personal best in that same event when she recorded a time of 10min 18sec.
The school’s record was 10:32 and Dutranoit’s previous best time was 10:21, which she recorded in the Cayman Islands last month. Dutranoit won the 1,500 in 4:56.11, which broke the school’s record of 4:56.75.
“She has two more meets ahead of her and she is hoping to lower her time in both events,” Donna Raynor, the Bermuda National Athletics Association president, said.
“It is great to see our athletes participating well after the Games and of course setting school records.”
Raynor is hoping to have Dutranoit available to compete at the NACAC Under-18 and Under-23 Championships in Queretaro, Mexico, from July 5 to 7.
