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 I junior action the Dalton Hinds-coached Gaynstead whipped St Hugh's 26-9 while in Group II among the Seniors the Wayne Stewart-coached 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 I action among the Juniors. The Spanish Town-based 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 II 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.
