The Ba netball team successfully retained the Sangam Convention title at Subrail Park in Labasa yesterday.

The defending champions were too powerful for Labasa as they came out victors 11-7.

Ba coach Sikeli Leweni told SUNsports that he was happy as this was their fourth win in a row.

“We would like to dedicate this win to the Ba Sangam family,” Leweni said.

“We travelled a long way to Labasa and this win is very rewarding especially to those who have sacrificed so much for us. It was a tough competition. On an important note, I would like to thank my players’ husbands for allowing them to participate. For us it is not about competition but it is giving back to our families and supporters for without them we wouldn’t have been here in Labasa.”

Labasa coach Sireli Tamani said he was happy with the way his players played.

“Competition was stiff and one of our players fainted during the semi-final. Nevertheless, I’m proud of her as she quickly regained her strength. It is not about winning but what is more important to us is  working together as a team.”
