Friday, March 21, 2014

SIGATOKA Andhra and Sigatoka Methodist have stamped their mark on day one of the Nadroga Navosa Secondary Schools athletics zone at Lawaqa Park yesterday.

The two schools set the pace for the defending champion Cuvu College as all schools prepare to give their all in the last day of competition today.

Sigatoka Andhra surprisingly dominated the boys' category winning four gold medals, followed by Sigatoka Methodist with three while Cuvu finished third with one gold medal.

In the girls division, Sigatoka Methodist leads the race with three gold medals followed by Sigatoka Andhra with two gold medals while Sigatoka Valley College is on third with one gold.

Two zone records were broken on day one.

Sigatoka Andra wonder boy Jonacani Tilalati set a record of 1.75m in the junior boys high jump while his schoolmate Kavekini Nalaga broke Tilalati's record of 4.59m in the sub junior boys long jump set in 2011. Nalaga set a record of 5.10m.

Zone spokesman James Tamanivalu said he was impressed with the competition shown by the athletes on day one.

He said the competition standard had improved compared with last year.

"We anticipate a tough competition in the final day," said Tamanivalu.

"It will be interesting to watch the rivalry of these athletes in the finals.

"All schools have prepared well for the competition."

The competition continues today.
