Kenani out to impress

Maciu Malo

THE Kenani Volleyball Association hopes to stamp its mark at this weekend's Western Rally competition.

The Lautoka-based association will field four teams at the tournament with its sight set on reaching the final.

Since the association's inception in 1997, it has never reached the final of a Western Rally and this has inspired the players to make their presence felt this weekend. Trainer Nikotimo Ratumainabukelevu said the players had been training hard over the past weeks in their bid to achieve their target with the combined efforts of some high school players.

"We have never reached the final of the Western Rally and we will make sure to stamp our mark at this year's tournament," said Ratumainabukelevu. "The players have been urged to do their best irrespective of which team they come up against in the pool games.

"All pool games are crucial and we can not afford to lose a single one if we want to progress."

Ratumainabukelevu said the players had sacrificed their time to train and were looking forward to a great tournament, especially the tough challenges from neighbours Topline and Lautoka.

"Our number one team has been drawn in the pool of death alongside West giants Topline, Lautoka 2 and Nadi, and all these games will be tough.

"But I have faith in my players that they can withstand the competition from these teams."

The Western Rally competition kicks off at Lautoka's multi-purpose courts on Saturday at 10am.
