Update: 1:08PM NO talk all action seems the order of the day in so far as high school track and field competition goes with two champion schools refusing to talk to the media.
In the west, Jasper Williams High School, the former girls division champion has refused to talk to the media since the start of the season.
Reigning champions Adi Cakobau School’s teachers however still talk the media but have refused access to their students.
ACS coach Tony Raboiliku said his team prefer to behave like underdogs.
“We are working hard towards our tradition of excellence and prefer to not make any media comments,” Mr Raboiliku said.
Interviewed at the Tailevu Zone on Thursday, the ACS coach said the schools was saddened by the deaths of a members of their support community.
“It’s the Coke Games, we underestimate nobody and we respect all schools,” he said.
Meanwhile in the west, JWHS has recorded good performances in the girls senior field events.
However the school did not show up to today’s Athletics Fiji Easter Games taking place at the ANZ Stadium.
The Easter games are a favorite gauge for most high school athletes ahead of next months Coca Cola Games.
Today’s games are also the final qualifier for athletes who want a place in Team Fiji to the Melanesian Games in Vanuatu in May.
