Bad weather mars Waimanu girls' preparations

BAD weather in the Central Division is hampering Adi Cakobau School's preparation for the Coca-Cola Games.

The former girls champion had its inter-house competition at the ANZ National Stadium in Laucala Bay yesterday.

ACS squad head coach Bola Tafo'ou said their inter-house competition had been delayed because of the adverse weather.

He said they were trying their best to prepare well for the annual secondary schools athletics meet which will be held on April 24 and 25 at the ANZ Stadium.

"The weather has been a problem and it has obviously disrupted our preparation but we just have to plan nicely with the remaining eight weeks or so," Tafo'ou said.

Tafo'ou said they would have a better idea about their squad after the zonal meet.

ACS competes in the Triple N Zone which will be held in a week's time.

"We will gauge from the zone and know where we stand. We are in the early stages and because the obstacles we have come across, it's very hard to predict anything.

"The performance of the athletes was OK and competition in the inter-house was good."

Kakala won the inter-house competition which also had Mokosoi, Uci and Lagakali teams competing.
