Lagi satisfied with performance

Maciu Malo
Tuesday, March 11, 2014

LAUTOKA netball president Joji Lagi will not contest the presidency post during the annual general meeting on March 15.

He said he was satisfied with his one-year performance at the helm of Lautoka netball that featured the Sugar City netters breaking new ground last season.

During his leadership, Lautoka managed to win two national titles while most of their netters have progressed in the sport.

Lautoka won the under-21 national title after 16 long years and also took out the B grade title after six years.

Some of the players who stood for Lautoka last year were national reps Afa and Ana Rusivakula and Rejieli Daveua, New Zealand-based Sisilia Bui Tora, Vani Navosailagi, Ilisapeci Lagi and Arieta Luvu.

Lagi said he would continue to support the netters' careers.

"I will not contest the election but I will try and assist the girls in any way possible," he said.

"I have achieved my objectives and aims for last year and the onus is on the new officials to continue from where we left off.

"Lautoka is blessed with many talented players with potential who could be groomed to become future stars.

"To successfully mould these girls we need to focus on their welfare."

Lagi said the players' welfare should be paramount at all times.

"In any sporting organisation, the players welfare is paramount for any team official because without the players there will be no sport," he said.
