Rusivakula sisters star for Shine On

Maciu Malo
Wednesday, January 22, 2014

A NEW set of the Rusivakula sisters are making their presence felt in the Lautoka Basketball Association weekly competition.

Miliana, 17, and Sosefina, 19, are on track to emulate the footsteps of their elder sisters and former national netball reps Afa and Ana.

While Afa and Ana are household names in Lautoka and Fiji netball, Miliana and Sosefina are also creating their own legacy in the basketball court.

The duo have been vital part of the KBL Shine On team in the Lautoka weekly competition after helping their team win the first round of games.

Lautoka basketball secretary Jale Vunisa said the sisters were very skillful and had been instrumental in the Shine On team campaign this year. He said the sisters had a bright future ahead of them and could follow the same footsteps of their netball sisters to represent the country.

"The Rusivakula sisters are very fit and skillful and have played a vital role for their teams," said Vunisa.

"Their performance over the past weeks was superb which has contributed to their first round success. The combination of the sisters augurs well for Shine On after leading the round two competitions.

Meanwhile, Vunisa said Shine On were on track to win the second round provided they maintained the consistency from round one.

He said all other teams were targeting to beat the defending champion.

"It will not be a smooth run for Shine On when they face the ever-improving Blazers team."

"Blazers have picked up on their fitness and will provide a good competition to Shine On."

In the men's category, Namoli and Blue Devil are hot favourites to win the second round.

This week's competition will be held at the multipurpose court on Saturday afternoon.
