Spot Valley High School in Montego Bay, St James is mourning the loss of student athlete Saymar Ramsay who collapsed and died of a heart failure.
The basketball player died shortly after a match with Cornwall College. Dr Walton Small, President of the Inter-Schools Sports Association, said rigorous medical screenings will be mandatory as of next year for student athletes.
He said ISSA discussed the matter at a meeting last week and intends to implement measures to address the problem.
Ramsay’s death comes weeks after St George’s College football player Dominic James collapsed at a football match and later died.
