Adi Cakobau School retains the Coca-Cola Games girls’ division title at the ANZ Stadium, Suva yesterday.

The girls from Sawani amassed 19 gold, 12 silvers and 9 bronze med­als.

Jasper Williams High came sec­ond (11 gold, 13 silvers, 6bronze), St Joseph’s Secondary third (5 gold, 5 silvers, 8 bronze) and Suva Grammar fourth (3 gold, 3 silvers, 2 bronze).

ACS athletics coach Antonio Raboiliku said each athlete played their part.

He dedicated their win to five par­ents, two of whom patrons of the ACS athletics team, who died ear­lier this year.

“That is why athletes wore black armbands,” he said.

“Our fallen heroes contributed a lot to the success of the team and the win is for them.”

He said the school’s preparation for the Fiji Finals started last year after all external examinations fin­ished.

“After exams in 2017, we had start­ed preparing for this year’s Fiji Final. We entered the competition determined that we would defend our title and win the blue ribbon event. We knew who our underdogs were,” he said.

“Students had a strict training programme. This win did not come easy. The students put more effort so we could defend the title.

“This win is also dedicated to old scholars, teachers, coaches and parents. This could not be possible without God’s provision and guid­ance to the team,” he said.
