NATIONAL reps Rosemarie Rova and Taichi Vakasama will spearhead Swami Vivekanada College’s campaign in this week’s Fiji National Schools Swimming Championship.

These upcoming stars have been training hard alongside their team mates for the past two months in their effort to scoop the high school titles to the West.

SVC won the girls title last year while the boys finished second behind Marist Brothers High School.

Vakasama said the team has set its target to win the boys title.

He said the team lost by one gold to Marist during last year’s and the aim was to win the top award.

A total of 42 swimmers will represent the school this year.
