Timoci Tu­imavana of Ma’afu House finished in second place clocking 12.02s, while Alfred Turner also of Ma’afu House finished third with a time of 12.17 seconds.

Bolstering the Lodoni athletics squad this year is Kameli Saudu­adua who won the 400m senior boys grade while the one to keep an eye for is former Natabua High School high jumper George Vokiti.

RKS principal Peni Senikarawa earlier stated that they aim to bet­ter their performance this year af­ter a tough battle against Natabua High School and Marist Brothers High School last year.

“We have reviewed our prepara­tion and this year we will focus on our weaknesses to produce a well-balanced team for the Coca-Cola Games,” Senikarawa added.
