JOHN Wesley College held a small celebration at their school yesterday to mark their win in the Suva Zone One athletics competition.

The competition was held at the ANZ Stadium on March 27 and the JWC won the junior boys title and the overall boys title at the meet.

School sports chairman Isimeli Koroi said zone president Walesi Soqoiwasa officially handed over the trophies to principal Joji Nakaora yesterday.

The boys won nine gold medals, six silver and seven bronze medals to end with 22 medals in total.

"This is the first time in the history of our school that we have won the zone," Koroi said.

"Usually, it's either Nasinu Secondary School or Ratu Sukuna Memorial School that wins the zone but last month, we managed to get to the top."

He said the students were happy with the win but were now turning their attention to the Fiji Secondary Schools Athletics Championships — the Cola-Cola Games.

"Most of our medals came from the track event sand we won mostly silver in the field events.

"So now, we are focusing on turning those silver to gold at the Coca-Cola Games in two weeks.

"We are looking forward to providing a good challenge to the top schools of the country."
