St Joseph’s Secondary did not have their inter-house meet but secured the services of national coach Bola Tafou’u who guided the girls to the zonal meet yesterday and to the Coca-Cola Games on April 19-21.

Team manager Lanieta Rakanace said they started their off season training in October last year.

“We started training in October so that was really the programme,”she said.

“I would like to thank coach Bola who was assisted by Banuve Tabakaucoro and Sisilia Seavula.

“Our sprinters won their grades and I think it’s the middle distance and the long distance events that we need to work on.

“But hats off to the hardworking coaches and the young ladies, we are really blessed,” Rakanace said.

Meanwhile Marist Brothers High principal Ben Salacakau strongly believes the competition in the boys division this year will be tough.

He made special mention of defending Coke Games champions Natabua who collected 21 gold medals in the Lautoka Zone and the two Tailevu rivals Queen Victoria School and Ratu Kadavulevu School.
