A 23-year-old record was among the seven broken at the Lautoka zone at Churchill Park yesterday.
Natabua High School student Josefa Ma'afu set a record in the sub junior boy's long jump with a distance of 5.52 metres.
The previous record was 4.91 metres set by Christopher Chong of Saint Thomas High School in 1991.
With the unavailability of the national master records, the organisers were not able to clarify if Ma'afu's jump was a new Fiji secondary school record.
Defending champions Natabua High School leads the boy's category with a haul of 11 gold, nine silver and six bronze after day one.
Jasper Williams holds the advantage in the girl's category with a total of 11 gold, eight silver and six bronze.
Lautoka Secondary Schools Athletics Association president Jupendra Narayan said they did not face any major problems.
Narayan said all the events went smoothly with records set especially in the field events.
"The times on the grass tracks were not as fast as what we can achieve at Laucala," he said.
Day two competition begins at 9am.
