REUBEN Tokona led the onslaught for his Rewa House as they retained their Queen Victoria School inter-house title after a powerful finish to the competition yesterday.
The stylish sprinter was a cut above the rest, scooping a double in the sprint events and helped his 4x100m relay team settle for gold to complete his triple gold medal rush in the senior boys division.
Rewa stood by their house motto 'Teri kawai' and braved the heavy-underfoot grass tracks at Nukuvuto grounds to bag a massive 21 gold, 14 silver and one bronze at the two-day competition which ended yesterday.
Bau was second with 11 gold, 10 silver and seven bronze medals, Tovata was third with five gold, seven silver and 12 bronze while Verata finished at fourth position with two gold, eight silver and 11 bronze medals.
School head of PEMAC Tavo Sorovakatini said the wet weather did not deter the athletes from giving their best during the competition.
"It was a good effort from the athletes despite the fact that it was raining we managed to complete our inter-house.
"We expected more from the athletes but the weather was not in our favour," Tavo said.
"Congratulations to Rewa for winning. I believe they were better prepared for this competition."
He said the next focus was to defend their Tailevu Zone title which would be hosted by close rival Ratu Kadavulevu School.
"Now we will regroup again for the zone and we hope to lift our preparation level."
Tavo thanked the parents and supporters who graced the event despite the rainy weather.
Meanwhile Fiji's Paralympic gold medallist Iliesa Delana was the chief guest at the meet.
Delana and his coach Fred Fatiaki witnessed the event as the four houses battled for top honours.
