THE Tavua District Secondary School is hopeful of winning a medal in the 2014 Coca-Cola Games.

The school last won a medal in the Fiji Finals about a decade ago and team manager Manasa Kaitabu is optimistic it will end the winless drought this year.

Tavua District will be fielding only two athletes in Hendry Sanday and Ranil Chand in the two-day games to be held at the ANZ Stadium.

Sanday holds the zone record of 4.68 metres in the sub-junior boy's long jump and will also participate in the 100m dash.

Chand will take part in the senior boy's 1500m event and boasts a time of 4 minutes 41 seconds.

The team is coached by Salveen Chandra.

Games start tomorrow.
