18/03/10: St James’ ready for big contest by Curtis Morton
Coach of the St.James’ Primary School, Shefton Daniel is calmly confident that his team will perform well in the upcoming Inter Primary sports meet, slated for March 24th.
“Training has been going well so far and I am sure about one Class champion”, he stated confidently. Daniel indicated that this year it will be all about strategy. The athletes will be utilized in such a way that they will bring more points to the team’s overall success than individual glory. He is confident that his school will win in its zone and is inviting everyone out to what he anticipates will be a keenly contested meet.
He however would like to see the spectators in ‘a little piece of red’. Red being the colour for St.James’. Even as he conducted the interview, it was observed that he was being ably assisted by Sports Coordinator, Lydia Thompson-Claxton as the athletes practised running in the lanes at the Elquemedo Willet Park
The athletes themselves seemed all enthused as they gave a royal wave to the camera.
