Makosoi wins again

MAKOSOI House successfully retained the Nabua Secondary School inter-house title yesterday.

The Yellow House amassed 605 points at the ANZ Stadium in Suva to beat closest rivals Lagakali (Blue) who scored 583 points.

Senijale, finished third with 420 points while Red House â€" Senibua â€" were fourth with 280 points.

Principal Napolioni Silatolu said last week's tropical depression killed the momentum in the lead-up to the event.

"There was no school on Thursday and Friday last week and that was a reason by why the performance was slightly below par," he said.

"The momentum was lost and when the kids came to school today (yesterday) we said 'let's go for the inter-house'."

Nabua is looking for a better performance at the Fiji Secondary School Athletics Championships (Coca-Cola Games) this year.

"Last year we only had two students in the Coca-Cola Games. One participated in the 100m event and one took part in the senior boys triple jump.

"This is because we competed in the zone with Marist and Suva Grammar and the rest of our athletes lost in the zone.

"But this year, we want to send more athletes to the Coke Games and we will work towards that goal."

Silatolu said the school would have another trial on their own ground next week to finalise the number of athletes to the zone competition.

"We want to send around 30 or 40 athletes to the zone and those athletes will be named next week."
