Champ aims high

Maciu Malo

JASPER Williams High School anticipates tough challenges in its bid to defend the girls' trophy at the upcoming Coca-Cola games.

The reigning champions are aware that top contenders such as ACS, Suva Grammar and Saint Joseph's are aiming to wrest the trophy away from the Sugar City girls.

Jasper coach Antonio Raboiliku said defending the crown would be an uphill battle for the Jasperians.

He said all he needed from his athletes was for them to give their best at the two-day meet.

"We are taking each day as it comes and the girls know that all schools will be targeting them," said Raboiliku.

"All we ask from our girls is to give their best; it doesn't matter if they win or lose, as long as they give their best.

"We are familiar with the challenges but that won't affect our preparations.

"Our main objective is participation and all we can ask for from the girls is to perform to their best."

Raboiliku said unlike other schools, Jasper is being trained by their teachers.

"While our rivals have gone to the extent of hiring full-time coaches to boost their campaign, our team is trained and guided by teachers.

"We rely on our own resources and most importantly we also rely on divine intervention.

"Our preparation is normal because we don't have the experience of defending the title."

Raboiliku said despite niggling injuries, they had faith that the Sugar City girls would rise to the occasion.
