Team Sheraton were crowned the bowling champions of the Grand Melanesian Hotel/ Zaika Restaurant sponsored Pickett Cup at the Nadi Sports and Social Club yesterday.

Duo David Aitcheson and Rajnesh Prasad remained unbeaten during the two-day event accumulating a total of 16 points.

Team Nadi laced with Sitiveni Tikoisuva and Keegan Jaduram were runners-up with 10 points. The third place ended in a tie between Ba and Rakiraki’s Iliyaz Khan and Raymond Singh while last year’s winner Team Labasa (Jona Koroitamana and Rick Eyre) managed only six points.

Aitcheson said all the nine teams came in well-prepared.

“When we come to play, we just have to give it our best, so when you win you win,” he said.

“The competition is very fierce. It brings in all the best players in Fiji so the best team always come out winning at the end of the competition. It was the motivation from the club, when they choose us to represent them so we wanted to win it for the club.”

The pair were also part of the team that won the Hudson Cup last month.

“We are glad that we have done it and we just want to maintain this momentum into the next tournament.”

Aitcheson said they now look forward to the Masters Singles.

Meanwhile, in the women’s category Suva pair Varasila Vosalotaki and Kulea Tamani were the overall winners ahead of Sheraton’s Sheral Mar and Lorretta Kotoisuva.
