Tailevu North College hopes to retain its girls title in the Tai­levu Zone meet which con­tinues at the ANZ Stadium today.

107 athletes participated for the two-day event.

Team manageress, Asen­aca Baleinaqali said with Adi Cakobau School’s par­ticipation it would not be easy for them.

ACS participated in the Tailevu Zone this year as the Triple N Zone was ear­lier cancelled due to the un­certainty of the Fiji Finals date.

However, they will still participate in the Triple N Zone on August 2 as it is its designated zone.

“We are expecting a tough competition from ACS this year, since we are always dominating the girls divi­sion,” she said.

“We have been preparing well for this zone.”

Baleinaqali said they hope to dominate some long dis­tance events in the Junior and Sub-junior grades.

“Probably with our long distance runners, we have some very good runners in our 400 metres and 800 me­tres junior girls.

“We have a very good group from the sub junior boys and girls.

“Our target for this zone is to win the girls title as we are always dominating the girls.”

“For the Coca-Cola games; it depends on how they per­form today. Whoever quali­fies in their time for cokes, then I think will represent the school Games,” Balein­aqali added.

Competition continues to­day.
