THE Elenoa Sailosi-led Makosoi house was crowned the new champion at the Adi Cakobau School (ACS) inter-house competition at the Suva Grammar grounds in Veiuto yesterday.
ACS sprint queen Sailosi helped her side win with 13 gold, eight silver and 11 bronze medals at the day-long event to get the top prize.
Sailosi, who is part of the Athletics Fiji elite squad, also emerged as the school's top contender for the blue ribbon title at the upcoming Coca-Cola Games after storming through to win the 100 metres final yesterday.
She clocked just over 12 seconds to claim the senior 100m title along with the 200m and 4x100m gold medals.
Early leaders Kakala finished second with 11 gold, eight silver and 10 bronze medals while last year's winners Uci which was led by Miriama Senokonoko finished on the third spot with eight gold, 10 silver and eight bronze medals.
Lagakali finished last with five gold, 10 silver and six bronze medals.
Meet manager Joe Tuinamata was impressed with the talent displayed during the inter-house competition and indicated a good year for the Waimanu Kui girls.
He said even a slight drizzle in the latter stage of the competition failed to dampen the spirit of those on and off the track.
"And even on the grass tracks, the girls put up a great competition as almost all races were quite close," Tuinamata said.
"We are impressed with the outcome of the inter-house. We will pick a team based on the results here to compete at the Triple N Zone."
Tuinamata thanked parents and supporters and old scholars for coming out in numbers to support the athletes.
