Jamaica Gleaner - - SPORTS - Ray­mond Gra­ham Gleaner Writer

DE­FEND­ING JU­NIOR and se­nior ur­ban netball cham­pi­ons, Gayn­stead High and Cam­per­down High, were off to im­pres­sive wins in the sec­ond round of the ISSA ur­ban school­girls com­pe­ti­tion which got un­der­way at the Leila Robin­son Courts on Thurs­day.

In Group 1, ju­nior ac­tion the Dal­ton Hinds-coached Gayn­stead whipped St Hugh’s 26-9 while in Group II among the Se­niors the Wayne Ste­wart­coached Cam­per­down High were too strong for Tivoli High beat­ing them 53-17.

Coach Hinds was very im­pressed with his team’s start to their sec­ond round cam­paign.

“Nat­u­rally, I am pleased with the re­sult in our open­ing game as the ex­pec­ta­tion is to go all the way and de­fend our ti­tle, and we are ex­pect­ing to con­tinue win­ning, although I see all teams at this stage as big threats,” said Hinds.

St Jago High and St An­drew Tech­ni­cal were also vic­to­ri­ous in Group 1 ac­tion among the Ju­niors. The Span­ish Town­based St Jago had a 24-16 win over Pap­ine while in a very close en­counter, St An­drew Tech­ni­cal got the bet­ter of Cam­per­down 24-22.

In Group 2, there were wins for for­mer cham­pi­ons the Queen’s School, Nor­man Man­ley High and St Cather­ine High.

Queen’s got the bet­ter of Holy Child­hood 31-25, Nor­man Man­ley were too good for Wolmer’s win­ning 28-10 while St Cather­ine had a good 37-18 win over Cam­pion Col­lege.

Sec­ond round ac­tion will con­tinue next Wed­nes­day Novem­ber 9 at the same venue.
