t’s a dream come true for three Vanua Levu girls when they were selected in the Fiji Lewa Sewa Under-13 netball team to tour New Zealand next week.

Lisitia Saucoko, Vani Naioba and Viniana Delai were still coming to terms with their selection to play in the Pasifika Netball tournament.

Saucoko a Year Eight student of Nasavusavu District School acknowledged her mum for her endless support.

“Last week I attended the trial in Suva and I never thought that I will be one of those chosen to represent Fiji in New Zealand,” she said.

“I thank God for giving me the power that enables me to be chosen to represent Fiji. I’m also thankful to my relatives for supporting me also.”

Similar sentiment was echoed by Wailevu West District School student Naioba who indicated that she was excited to be part of a national team.

“I’m so happy to be chosen to represent Fiji in New Zealand. I’m thankful to my parents for their support,” she said.

Delai who attends Baravi Primary School in Bua said she is looking forward to the tour. The U13 team was invited by the Fijian community in Auckland and they would be sending three teams to compete at the tournament which also includes other Pacific countries as well.

The tournament will be played at the AMI Sports Centre next Saturday.
