Lambert House scooped the Marist Brothers High School inter-house competition af­ter a four-year lapse at the ANZ Stadium, Suva, yesterday.

The boys in yellow scored 3661 points to beat Augustine’s 3512, Al­phonsus finished third with 3266 while Claudius was fourth with 3205.

Lambert House teacher Giana Ca­vuilati said they were not expect­ing to win the inter-house this year.

“Augustine we know has been the best house since they won the past four years consecutively,” she said.

“We last won it in 2013 and we were not expecting to win but we are still wondering where did all those points come from? Our ath­letes gave their best and the junior grade was our strength as they won their events convincingly. We col­lected 48 points from the best pa­rade and our old boys took part in that last event which also contrib­uted to our points.

“The boys are all excited as they know all their dedication and sacri­fice has finally being paid off.”

Head of Physical Education, Mu­sic and Art and Craft department Penaia Qalituraga said after the one-day meet they would go back and rectify their strengths and weaknesses.

“We have the Suva Zone Two and Fiji Finals before us I would like to thank teachers, students, parents and old boys for their support,” Qalituraga said. “After this we will go back to school and try to map out our plan for the zone and Fiji Finals meet especially looking at our weaknesses and trying to strengthen it.”

The Flagstaff based-school will have more than 100 athletes in the zone meet.

Marist finished second in last year’s Fiji Finals after a strong contest against eventual winners Natabua High School and Ratu Ka­davulevu School.

Marist collected 10 gold, 8 silver and 7 bronze medals to finish be­hind Natabua who had 12 gold, five silver and five bronze medals while RKS finished third with 10 gold medals, seven silver and five bronze.
