LELEITH HODGES, A ST MARY HIGH SCHOOL SUCCESS STORY
It was the year 1972 when the Caribbean nations, as a show
of unity, staged the inaugural Carifta Games in Barbados. A
little known high school from the rurals of St Mary, opened
only a little over a decade prior to this event, introduced to
the islands and the rest of the world, what track and field
factory they had created in the hills of Highgate by churning
out gold medalists and world class sprinters at this event
and other international meets for decades to follow.
When the starter called the women under 20 100m finalists
to their blocks and subsequently fired the shot, it was St
Mary High School's Leleith Hogdes who left everyone in her
dust as she stopped the clock at 11.7 seconds beating
Debbie Byfield, also from Jamaica, to take the gold. Leleith,
St. Mary, and Jamaica were elated as she (Lelieth) had set
the stage for what would become a Jamaican dominance
of the Carifta Games in subsequent years. Leleith would
go on to a successful college and international career
representing Texas University and Jamaica, respectively.
In 1978, while a freshman at TWU, during the AIAW out-
door track and field championships in Knoxville, Tenn.,
Leleith Hodges would produced the fastest time over
100m that year by any woman on US soil when she clock-
ed 11.05 (wind assisted) on the first day of competition.
She went on to establish a new meet record - this after
running a blistering 11.18 in the finals and in the process
beating legendary track star Evelyn Ashford who finished
second in 11.42. Two weeks later at a meet in LA, Leleith
ran 11.14 in the 100m which established a new Jamaican
record over the distant. Hodges had hoist herself to the
number two ranked sprinter in the world behind Marlies
Gohr of East Germany. That year, 1978, Leleith Hodges
was named Jamaican Sportswoman of the Year. She com-
peted for Jamaica in three olympics - 1972, 1976 and 1980.
Leleith Hodges graduated from TWU in 1982 with a B.S. in
physical education. In 1999, she was inducted in TWA Hall
of Fame. She now resides in California with her husband
and their three children.
Shelly-Ann Fraser is often compared to Leleith Hodges.
And so for all this, we are proud of you Ms Leleith Hodges.

GARY RICKETTS, A ST MARY HIGH SCHOOL SUCCESS STORY
Gary Ricketts was born on December 8, 1975 in Port Maria,
St Mary. As a youngster, he frequented nearby Clemards
Park to watch football, a game he would grow to love. He
often fantasized about the day when he would run
on this very ground, scoring goals and electrifying
crowds. As he became older, Gary's love for the game int-
ensified and he excelled in the sport, exhibiting great skills
with a deep appetite for scoring goals. At Port Maria Sec-
ondary School, Gary got his first taste of organized football
with bonafide coaches. It was not long before he caught
the eyes of the coaching staff who encouraged him to
show up at practice and try out for the school's team. But
so conspicuous was his talent that soon he was summonds
with a scholarship to don the green and gold jersey of the
Highgate based St Mary High School with it's more struct-
ured program and a few talented youngsters of it's own.
Gary excelled at his new school and wasted no time
becoming it's star player, scoring goals at will and adding
respect to the school's sports resume, alerting it's rivals
and other contemporaries. He would raise his game to
new and improve heights each successive year and was
called up for duty on the All DaCosta Cup team. It was
not long after this that the Jamaican coaches jumped
on the bandwagon, taking notice of this youngster who
was later awarded a spot on the national under 20 team.
It was while mesmerizing fans and opponents alike
during his stint in the DaCosta Cup and while on the nat-
ional junior team - in 1995 - that Gary caught the eyes
of an American football coach and was subsequently
awarded a football scholarship to attend Bluefield
College in Virginia where he would continue to dazzle
crowds with his sensational dribbles and precise
passes; an affair that lasted two seasons. But Gary
was soon on the move again after impressing the
coaches from Liberty University where he was 'trans-
fered', representing them also for a couple years as he
would continue his prolific scoring, eluding tacklers while
showcasing his skills on ballgrounds wherever he went.
Gary kept in touch with his grandparents, Eulalee
and Levi Ricketts, who he left behind in Jamaica and who
were the ones responsible for his upbringing, often
telling them of his deep desires to play in Europe and
one day representing the Jamaican senior team.
While attending university, Gary started the tran-
sition from the varsity league to the professionals,
representing the Roanake Wrath, a minor league team
from Roanake, Virginia.
After accompanying friends to purchase a car and
while on their way back home in the middle of the night,
as Gary slept and his friend behind the wheel,
tragedy prevailed - something Gary Ricketts unfortun-
ately knows all too well having lost a brother and a
At approximately 1 AM on the morning of Sept 19, 1999,
Gary's life would be changed forever; gone were his
dreams and asperations in an instant as he and his
friend were pulled from the wrecked car and rushed to
nearby Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center. Gary would
wake up a quadripligic - paralyzed from the chest down
and restricted to his bed and later, a wheelchair, having
broken his neck and crushed his spinal cord. At first he
was in denial for certainly it had to be a bad dream, or
so he thought - but he never woke from this nightmare.
Gary would later revealed that he wanted to die rather
than to go on living that way. As time went by, a stoic
Gary Ricketts slowly confronted his disposition, gath-
ering strength with each passing day.
Since the accident, Gary Ricketts has had to deal
with one obstacle after another like the fierce opp-
onents he confronted while on the football field. But
thanks to a few dedicated friends, his pastor, his
doctors and nurses, and the rest of the medical staff,
Gary Ricketts continues to elude the tackles. His med-
ical bill is in excess of $3000 per month and continues
to climb which remains one of his tallest hurdle.
Now more than a decade later, Gary has made
a 360 degrees transformation in his life; he continues
to serve as a beacon of inspiration to many as he
went from depression and despair, wanting to end his
life, to a man on a mission, drawing strength from his
new found faith in the Lord and proving to many that
happiness can be restored from the deepest abyss to
one of hope and joy spearheaded by Jesus Christ.
Today Gary Ricletts is working on his autobiography
entitled "Ready to Stretch" which he hopes to have on
bookshelves soon. Gary can be contacted at
And so for all this, we are proud of you Mr Gary Ricketts.
MR OWEN JAMES, A ST. MARY HIGH SCHOOL SUCCESS STORY
St. Mary High School's own Owen James has been giving ad-
ept insight into the financial world and other journalistic re-
lated matters for almost 40 years.
While at school, James was known for his creative writing
skills and it was this ability that would eventually propel him
into the world of journalism in the early 1970s.
In 1972, a young Owen James started working at the Jam-
aican Gleaner as a trainee journalist. So impressed were his
superiors that young James was soon promoted to an editor
position. Later he was selected by Hector Winter, editor-in-
chief of the Gleaner, to attend various courses including a stint
at the prestegious Harry Brittain Fellowship in London. James
started implementing things he learnt overseas and soon, as
manager, he watched the circulation of the Jamaican Star im-
proved by 37 percent.
In 1982, after 11 years with the Jamaican Gleaner, Owen James
sought and attained work at the now defunct JBC. It didn't take
him long to be promoted to Assistant Director of News, Sports,
and Current Affairs.
In 1997, when JBC was divested, James was made redundant,
this after 15 years of service.
In 1998, James went on the air, this time at Super Supreme Tele-
vision, with his program, 'The Business Day'. The early days were
not without hiccups but eventually the program would create a
niche as corporate Jamaica came on board through sponsorship.
The highly acclaimed, ' The Business Review', was his subsequent
By the year 2000, Owen James had started his own company which
he named, 'All Media Services Limited'. Here, at this small media pro-
duction company, in addition to presenting financial information to
the masses, the company also produced programs for radio and
television. Later, in 2003, while at TVJ, James conceptualized the
program, 'On a Personal Note,' a program which resonated with
young Jamaicans who easily identified and could relate to the
contents of the program.
Owen James productions would eventually set the standard by
which other financial programs are judged and in many cases,
other programs would emulate his concepts.
His latest venture, 'The Owen James Report,' started in August,
2011 and is aired on CVM TV. His business website is
And so for all this, we are proud of you Mr Owen James.
MR MORAIS GUY, A ST. MARY HIGH SCHOOL SUCCESS STORY
On November 25, 1956, Moses and Nerissa Guy welcomed their
7th of 13 children, Morais Guy, in Belfield, St. Mary. Before entering
St. Mary High School, Morais studied at Belfield Primary School. At
St. Mary High, the brainy youngster served as captain of the school's
School Challenge Quiz team and as deputy head boy.
Upon graduating from St. Mary High School, Morais was accepted in
the medical program at the UWI in 1975. He excelled at the UWI and
was made chairman of Chancellor Hall.
After completing his studies, and now a medical doctor, Dr Morais
Guy worked at the Spanish Town Hostpital and at the Bustamante
Children Hostpital for a number of years before heading to his
birth parish where he established his own medical practice in
Highgate and in Islington.
Dr Guy, always true to his roots, served the community with decorative
distinction from the grassroots to the professional and elite platform.
He served as a member of the JAMAL parish board, member of the
St Mary High School's board from 1984 - 1990, a member of the
Highgate Branch Library's committee, and a member of the St. Cyprian
Prep School's board, to name a few. His professional achievements
include serving as member of several prestigious professional med-
ical fraternities such as the Medical Association of Jamaica, The Assoc-
iation of General Practitioners of Jamaica, as president of the Assoc-
iation of General Practitioner of Jamaica from 1992 - 1994, and also as
a member of the Caribbean College of family Physicians.
Dr Morais Guy innate drive to continue serving in the public services led
him to enter the political arena in 1976 and today he is a member of parl-
iament for Central St. Mary, Minister Without Portfolio - Transport, Works
and Housing; this after defeating the JLP's Lennon Richards in the
November, 2012 general elections.
Dr Morais Guy and his wife Nadine, also a medical doctor, are the
proud parents of two children.
And so for all this, we are proud of you Mr Morais Guy.
JACQUELINE PUSEY, A ST MARY HIGH SCHOOL SUCCESS STORY
Following the success of Lelieth Hodges, St Mary High School would
wait only a mere three years for another of her own to rise to
prominence in athletics, this time through one Jacqueline Pusey,
an Islingston native and St Mary High School most decorated female
At the Girls Athletics Championships, Jacqueline Pusey ran virtually
unchallenged, usually breaking the tape while her competitors
followed yards behind. So emphatic were her wins, the local
television station would replay her performances several times on
the evening news.
A young Jackie sent her first warning to the outside world at the
prestigious Carifta Games during the 1975 edition in Hamilton,
Bermuda when she mounted the podium after claiming silver
behind the host country's Debbie Jones in the 200m and 400m.
The following year, 1976, this time in Nassau, Bahamas, Debbie
Jones would continue her winning ways, holding off Pusey in the
100m and 200m as Pusey, once again, had to settle for a pair of
1977, Jamaica and the Caribbean watched in awe as a more
seasoned Jacqueline Pusey demolished her opponents at home
while showing vast improvents on the international circuit.
As the much anticipated match-up between Pusey and Jones got
on it's way at the Carifta Games in Bridgetown, Barbados, G had t Jacqueline Pusey had to wait until the 400m finals to taste victory
over her Caribbean rival, beating her, Jones, and established a new
meet record in the process. (It should be noted that Debbie Jones
had competed in both the 100m & 200m earlier at the meet, winning
both races). That same year, a young girl, also from St Mary High
School, Doreen Small, would introduce herself to the track and
field community, bursting onto the scene like a meteroid from
space, signalling her future intent - to win.
1978 was Jaqueline Pusey's most dominant schoolgirl year, as
her magnificent display at the Girls Athletics Championships,
the likes of which had never been seen before, warranted eye
popping and jaw dropping coaches from universities in the States
to pursue this bundle of talent as Jackie demolished her opponents
and set the stage for what would become ' Jackie's Carifta Games'.
At the games held in Nassau, Bahamas, with her old menace,
Debbie Jones, over the age requirements to compete, Jacqueline
Pusey put on a one woman clinic, while romping to victory in the
200m and 400m, winning both races convincingly.
Jackie would attend and compete for a US university and also for
Jamaica. She ran at the Montreal Olympics in 1976 at the tender
age of 16.
Jamaica's 1983 4x100m women's team at the World Athletics
Championships comprised of Lelieth Hodges, Jacqueline Pusey,
Juliet Cuthbert and Merlene Ottey and is arguably the best relay
team ever assembled by the country though their record does
not substantiate. However, considering that nowadays athletes
compete in a more professional climate and given that todays
athletes compete in advance gears, run on faster tracks, recieve
better training and get superior medical treatment and condition-
ing, there's no telling how many records that quartet would have
established were they competing in this era!
And so for all this, we are proud of you Ms Jacqueline Pusey.

DOREEN SMALL, A ST MARY HIGH SCHOOL SUCCESS STORY
The year 1977 saw Jimmy Carter being elected as president of
the United States, Bob Marley was on his way to becoming an
international icon and coach Haughton-James guided St Mary
High School to their second consecutive lean on the coveted
title as Jamaica's girls athletics champions!
While Jacqueline Pusey and Bermuda's Debbie Jones continued
to duel in their fierce rivalry for Caribbean supremacy in high-
school's female sprints, a young phenom, Doreen Small, from
St Mary High School in Jamaica was gathering momentum her-
self and in 1976 she would burst onto the scene like a meteroid
from space, sending shockwaves throughout the track and
Though she never garnered the same hype generated by Jacque-
line Pusey, Doreen Small would quiet all of her doubters when
she won the Carifta Games' girls under 17 100m finals in Nassua,
Bahamas in 1976 beating hometown favourite , L. Richardson
into first place, this after an impressive showing at the Girl
Championships in Kingston, Jamaica.
Doreen would follow up this performance by placing third in
women's under 20 100m finals of the Carifta Games in 1977
held in Bridgetown Barbados behind Bermuda's Debbie Jones
and Maureen Gottshalk, also of Jamaica.
A year later, 1978, there would be no denying Doreen, as she won
the 7th edition of the Carifta Games held in the Bahamas, running
a wind assisted 11.78 in the 100m and would later claim victory
in the 100m hurdles over Gina Tempro of Barbados. (Pusey would
run away with top honors in the 200 and 400m that same year for
a St Mary High School's clean sweep of the Caribbean high schools'
female sprints). And so for this, we are proud of you Doreen Small.
Doreen Small in Florida, 2011
DANNY HAWTHORNE, A ST MARY HIGH SCHOOL SUCCESS STORY
Danny Hawthorne is regarded as one of the best and most pop-
ular coaches in Jamaica. He has been involved as coach of the
national team at both the senior and junior levels.
Before guiding Yohan Blake to international fame, Danny Hawth-
orne was coach of St Mary High School's track and field, football
and cricket teams for 13 years (this without much formal training
as a coach). Though not considered a bona fide coach at the time,
Mr Harthorne was slowly creating a coaching name for himself
when he guided a couple sprinters from St Mary High to local
and then international prominence namely, Percival Spencer,
named most outstanding athlete at Boys Champs (circa 1994)
and one of only a handful of Jamaicans to dip below 10 seconds
in the 100m sprints and young Nicole Mitchell, one of the most
gifted female sprinter the world has ever seen.
Danny Hawthorne would enhance his credentials and solidify
himself as one of the best coaches in Jamaica and in the world
when upon departing from St Mary High, he enrolled in and
completed an advanced coaching program at G.C. Foster College.
And so for all this, we are proud of you Mr Danny Hawthorne.
ROBERT MONTAGUE, A ST MARY HIGH SCHOOL SUCCESS STORY

young man in 1990 as councillor for the Carron Hall Division
in St Mary. Mr Montague, through his love for politics, plung-
ed deeply into his career, giving it his all and was subsequently

And so for all this, we are proud of you Mr Robert Montague.
MR LISTER HAUGHTON-JAMES, A ST MARY HIGH SCHOOL SUCCESS
Today Jamaica stands as a powerhouse in athletics but this comes as
no surprise to former volunteer coach of St Mary High, Mr Lister
Haughton-James. He saw the potential of Jamaican athletes from
1968-1984 when he was coach at the school. He pursued his task
with an I can attitude and was not daunted by the odds. According to
Mr. Haughton-James, "We were at the bottom of athletics with in-
adequate funds, facilities and equipments. However, my maxim
has always been, to worry about what you don't have is to waste
what you have." He therefore felt confident in sharing the athletic
skills he gained as a student at Excelsior High where he was a
sprinter in the 100 and 200 meters.
In order to be a successful athlete, you need to be disciplined
and dedicated to the task at hand. Mr Haughton-James found
an eager group of athletes. He spoke with passion as he de-
scribed their commitment, "Not even heavy rain would stop the
athletes training as they would use the auditorium, roads,
school steps, corridors, driveway, netball court etc. We even
won Eastern Champs convincingly the first year that I started
coaching. These champs were held at the U.W.I playing-field.
We had a large team but only about a dozen pair of spikes.
Of particular note was the fact that dispite this, no one ran
without spikes. Our athletes were noted for their quick start
at a time when we did not have starting blocks."
He proudly reeled off a long list of names of top athletes of
the school - " Jackie Pusey, Lilieth Hodges, Doreen Small, Kay
Allen, the late Lelta Simms, Sandra Sterling, Michael Campbell,
Donovan Stanford, the late Andre Gillette, Leroy Coleman,
Patrick Gayle, among others."
He remembers many proud moments when St Mary High ath-
letes brought glory to the school and pointed out, "The con-
fidence in the team was so great that we could predict the
individual and overall performance even before they made
it on the track. Their domination of Eastern Champs from 1968-
1983, the winning of Girls Champs in 1976 and 1977 and the
fact that in 1974 only 9 boys went to Boys Champs yet man-
aged to place 6th out of 40 plus schools stand out for me.
Over the years they also participated in Gibson Relays and
won several medals."
It was with some amount of amusement that he recalled
what happened with some of the male participants in the
1968 Boys Champs, "Two of our boys made it to the 100
and 200m finals and this had the organizers rushing around
overnight to have extra numbers to cope with the situation.
Michael Campbell did very well in both events."
He beamed with pride as he went on to state, "St Mary High
athletes also represented Jamaica well regionally and inter-
nationally at the Carifta Games, Penn Relays and Olympics.
Lilieth Hodges went to the 1972 and 1976 Olympics and
Jackie Pusey participated in the 1976 Olympics. I must point
out that in both instances, they were still students of St Mary
High School when they first participated."
Jamaican athletes have made a habit of standing out at the Penn
Relays and he recalls that those from St. Mary High were no ex-
ception. In listing the major achievements at these relays he said,
"We did well in 1981 when the youngest team ever of 6 girls from
class 2 and 3 ran in the 4x100 and 4x400m relays and came home
with medals and a plaque. Let us not forget the boys who ran in
1974 in the 4x100 relays."
He was happy to speak of the fitness of his athletes stating, "I
managed to keep them injury free. I can't recall any athlete's
career coming to an early end due to injury. As a matter of fact, no
athlete had to withdraw from an event due to injury." He further
pointed out, "There were athletes who did well not only in athlet-
ics, but academically. Now they are pursuing a wide range of prof-
essions. Of special note is the current Vice Principal, Jacqueline
St Mary High is not among the dominant schools in athletics at
this time but he feels that it is not impossible for this school to
rise again affirming, "With the assistance of funds, equipments
and facilities, the school can produce top athletes in the future."
He also stressed the importance of support from school officials and
the community. He made special mention of former principal, the
late Mr. Edgar Cargill, former sports master Seymour Hutchinson,
sports mistress, Ventrice Vidal and Trevor Stoddart who gave him
strong support during his tenure.
He looks to the day when St. Mary High students shine again on
the national and international scenes. He continues to be an ard-
ent athletics fan revelling in the success of Jamaican athletes as
they win medals and shatter records at the Olympics and World
Games. (Mr Haughton-James was one of the coaches for the Jam-
aica Carifta Games Team between 1975-1977)
And so for all this, we are proud of you Mr Lister Haughton-James.
