DEFENDING champions Natabua High School are brimming with confidence ahead of the team competition at the National Secondary Schools Badminton Championships today.

Yesterday, members of the team were in action in the individual competition and also featured in the final stages at the Yat Sen Secondary School hall.

School's badminton co-ordinator Ranjeev Singh said their strength lay in the team event.

"Our boys lost in the semi-finals to Rishikul College and International Secondary School Suva but all four semi-finalists in the girl's competition were from Natabua and it was a Natabua versus Natabua final," he said.

"It was just the first day of the competition and our players were adjusting to the courts and the atmosphere here at Yat Sen hall and so we are very confident about day two competition."

Singh said their main focus was defending the titles that would be on the line and they would work very hard to take it back to Lautoka.

"The boys have had their title for a long time, I think 11 years and girls have had their title for five years.

"It is also the final year for many seniors on the team so that adds a lot of pressure on the team to retain their titles.

"But there are also a lot of young development players that have been impressive and we are positive of day two competition."
