Marist retains title

ONCE again Marist Brothers High School proved they are the real athletics champs.

This was after the boys from Flagstaff successfully retained their Coca-Cola Games title with 11 gold, seven silver and one bronze, edging out Suva Grammar School and Queen Victoria School at the ANZ Stadium yesterday.

Suva Grammar School won six gold, five silver and four bronze while Queen Victoria School was third with six gold, three silver and one bronze.

MBHS team manager Navitalai Waiwalu said their sacrifices paid off.

"We thank the boys for their achievement and the whole Marist family who were behind us, our sponsors and all our supporters," Waiwalu said.

"The commitment and consistency was the difference in this win."

Waiwalu said winning at the new stadium was the icing on the cake.

"This win is special for us because a lot of our elite athletes like Banuve Tabakaucoro, Roy Ravana and Ratu Tira Narara are not with us. And to win at the new stadium is a better way to do it," he added.
