Koroyanitu House won the Ba Provincial High School inter-house athletics com­petition at Churchill Park in Lau­toka on Friday.

It was a stiff competition with Ko­royanitu House collecting 24 gold medals, 22 silvers and 21 bronze followed by Koroba House who had 22 gold medals, 20 silvers while Va­tuira House was third with 21 gold medals, 29 silvers and 10 bronze. Tomani Ivi House was fourth with 20 gold medals, 24 silvers and 23 bronze.

Principal Meli Tora said though the weather had contributed to their lack of preparations but nev­ertheless they are more focused on nurturing the children.

“We are really happy with the whole scenario with the kids’ participation but hopefully if the Coca-Cola Games could see some benefits trickle down to the kids,” he said.

“Athletics has minimum benefits when it comes down to the chil­dren. For the zone we were hop­ing that it would take place in the ninth and tenth week but then it has been moved up the eighth week but we will still try to give our best.

“We will be taking over 60 ath­letes but for the Coca-Cola games I’ll say my piece after crossing the bridge.”

Tora further added that they are hoping to improve their perfor­mance from last year where they won a silver in high jump.

“We should better our perfor­mance this year and we need the support from the parents and guardians.”
