Nadogo Central College has again successfully defended the Macuata Zone One Secondary Schools title at All Saints Secondary School in Labasa yesterday.

Nadogo Central College manager James Prasad said the win is their third year-in-a-row and they dedicate it to their coaches and also to the school administration.

“We brought in 90 athletics and prepared them for three weeks,” he said.

“The bad weather made it difficult for athletes to train but we still managed to organise ourselves.”

Nadogo Central won a total of 36 gold, 19 silvers and 12 bronze medals. In second place was Duavata Secondary School with 18 gold medals, 14 silvers and 8 bronze.

Holy Family Secondary School came third with 16 gold, 19 silvers and 15 bronze medals.

Macuata Zone One president Shavneel Chand said the competition was a successful one.

“There was no protest, we were blessed with good weather and the schools participated with great discipline,” he said.

The participating schools were All Saints Secondary School, Holy Family Secondary School, Nadogo Central College, Guru Nanak Khalsa College, Valebasoga Secondary School, Naleba College, Bulileka Sanatan College, Labasa Sangam College, Duavata Secondary School and Batinikama College.

The Cakaudrove and Taveuni Secondary Schools athletics competitions are also being played this weekend. The winners will determine which athletes qualify for the Coka Games.

The Macuata Zone has been renowned of producing top runners like Sita Ram, Reena Devi and Moses Zarak in the Coca-Cola Games in the past years.
