SJSS scoops title

WORDS could not express the feelings of the Saint Joseph's Secondary School (SJSS) athletes when they were crowned the new Suva Zone Two girls champions yesterday.

PEMAC teacher Alice Crocker said she could not explain such a victory in words.

"It's been far too long for the girls to come this far and right now I can't explain it, it's awesome, everything is dedicated to the girls because they've given their effort, their training not forgetting the coaches and the old girls," she said.

"The support came from them and also our principal, she has really supported us in everything that we tried to do for athletics. Right now this is just the first step, Coca-Cola Games is second step but we don't want to put ourselves first in the Coca-Cola games, we want to be underdogs we wont say anything but whatever athletes and coaches have prepared for the Fiji Secondary finals we'll see in the finals."

SJSS team leader and sprinter Sisilia Seavula was awarded best female athlete with 2 gold after winning the senior girls 100meters and 200m events.

"I'm just so overwhelmed. There is just nothing else to say but give praise to the Lord because without him none of this would be possible," she said.

"It's my last year and this is a great gift to give back to my school for what they have moulded me into. A lot of people doubted us so we just had to prove them wrong in the zone, and we did, the girls did very well."

"I would like to dedicate my win to my mom who has always been there for me, the school, the girls and those who have been supporting SJSS."
