WORKING on the basics of athletics is a necessity for the Lami High School athletics team as it builds up to the Suva Zone One competition.
After completing its inter-house at the ANZ Stadium in Suva yesterday, LHS schoolteacher, Biu Colati said they got work to do prior to the zone competition.
"I am pleased with some of the performance of students here," Colati said.
"Some of these athletes have the potential to become very competitive but no one is there to groom and guide them.
"From what I saw they needed to improve on the basics of athletics."
Colati said LHS should not be written off.
"Lami will be a force to be reckoned with within the next three years. I have seen some good athletes at our inter-house meet. With proper training given to them, I believe Lami should not be written off."
