Cicia High School head coach Iliesa Koto has called on the support of Cicia natives living in Suva and Nausori for the school’s 18 athletes participating in the Maritime Zone at the ANZ Stadium today.

The school will be participating to select their best athletes for the three-day 2019 Coca-Cola Games which start at the ANZ Stadium next Tuesday.

“If you know that you from Cicia, Lau please come to the Stadium and support your athletes. They need your support,” Koto said.

“Some of these athletes are participating for the first time at the ANZ Stadium and the environment will be new to them so your support will be vital for our Cokes Games preparations.”

This is the third time Cicia High School will be participating at the Fiji finals.

They started with only five athletes in 2017 to 16 athletes at year’s Games.

They are hoping to take a team of 18 to this year’s event.

The principal said it cost the school approximately $7000 to bring the athletes to Suva, which was funded through the support of the parents.

“We had a huge support from parents, the vanua o Cicia and also the teacher’s commitment which has enabled these 18 athletes to come to Suva,” he added.

The Lau island based school will fill in athletes in track events which includes 200m, 400m, 800,1500m and 3000m.

They are not in the capital to make up the numbers but to win medals, Koto said.

“We had our inter-house in week nine to select our best 18 athletes as we want to compete competitively to win medals,” he added.

Following the Coke Games, the school will go for an excursion trip around Viti Levu.

“This is also to help students in their academic work not only focusing on sports but their academic side to,” the principal added.
