Floyd Coke, the coach of defending champions Naggo Head Primary, says that he is very pleased with the performance of his team going into today's second day of the four-day Insports Primary School Athletics Championships at the National Stadium.

Two finals will be contested on Day Two, the girls' cricket ball throw in which Lyssons' Kecia King is the favourite and the girls' high jump.

Naggo Head are seeking a fourth straight lien on the trophy and their ninth title overall.

"We have progressed nicely because I think all the areas have been covered," said Coke. "I think the coaches have done their work on my team and we could not ask for better," he said. "We have had a better opening day than last year."

Naggo Head won last year's championships by more than 90 points and Coke added that he was very optimistic that they will retain the title.

Meanwhile, Krisneve Palmer, coach of last year's runners-up Greater Portmore, is satisfied with his team's progress on Day One.

"So far we have advanced to a few semi-finals, and we are very pleased," said Palmer.
