Speaking to SUNsports, ACS head coach Antonio Raboiliku was overwhelmed with the girls winning performance.

“I am really happy with the performance as they managed to achieve our goal of retaining the title,” Raboiliku said.

“I believe it’s the hard work and determination of the girls that enabled them to come out victorious.

“It was quite a challenging year also for the entire as school as we had been sacrificing and dedicating most of our time and effort into preparation.”

Raboiliku also highlighted that some of the athletes parents had passed away at the beginning of this year which

was the reason why most of them had worn black armband to honour them.

“This year a few of our athletes’ parents passed away so we tried to remember them with the athletes wearing black bands on their arms.

“Nevertheless, we will go back and prepare ourselves accordingly in order to retain our overall girls’ title for the Coke Games next year.”
