NEW champions were crowned in the Maritime Zone at the ANZ Stadium in Laucala Bay yesterday.

The Maritime Zone was the final build-up for the schools from the outer islands taking part in the Coca-Cola Games which starts this Friday at the stadium.

Yasayasa Moala College won the boy's grade after scooping 12 gold, five silver and two bronze medals.

Yasawa High finished second with nine gold, seven silver and two bronze while Gau Secondary came third with four gold, two silver and two bronze medals.

In the girls division, Yasayasa Moala triumphed with seven gold, two silver and one bronze medal while Koro High managed second finish with three gold and two silver medals.

Gau Secondary managed the third place with one silver and one bronze medal.

Maritime Zone co-ordinator Biu Colati was impressed with the performance of the athletes.

He said top schools should not underestimate the maritime schools as they had the ability to cause major upsets on the competition day.

"The number of athletes may have dropped this year but the quality has increased," Colati said.

"This may be because of the new qualifying standards that have been introduced this year where the best is being represented in the Coca-Cola Games."

Colati said the maritime schools would be competitive enough for other schools part of the two-day secondary schools meet.

"There were some remarkable performance today (yesterday) and I think other teams shouldn't take them lightly.

"These maritime schools have come from far and they need the moral support of people that come from those areas."
