AARON Powell is the new holder of the SCA Shield for the men's blue ribbon when he won the open boys 100m event at the ANZ Stadium yesterday.

The Gospel Saints club member clocked 11.12s to win the title in the Saturday athletics competition.

Title holder Banuve Tabakaucoro was not able to defend the title because he has been in Australia competing in the Australian Athletics Competition.

The sprint champion recorded the second fastest time in the 100m heats when he clocked 10.43s and competed in the final late last night.

Tabakaucoro will take part in 200m race today.

Meanwhile, ACS student Sainimili Naisaumua won the SCA Shield in the women's 400m when she clocked 1m 02s.

The women's long jump title was won by Torika Soso of ACS when she jumped a distance of 9.87 metres.

The overall youth title was won by Ratu Jo Tabakaucoro who clocked 11.53s in the 100m and 23.97s in the 200m events.

Competition official Maciu Koroitamana said the performance of all athletes in the competition was improving.

"From when the competition started late last year, the athletes have improved their performances," he said.

"And today (yesterday), we saw that all titles have changed hands."

Koroitamana thanked SCA Hygiene for givining prizes.
