BMS revival

FORMER Fiji netball rep Seruwaia Vonolagi has inspired Ballentine Memorial School's resurrection in the Suva Secondary Schools netball competition this season.

Vonolagi who was named to coach her former school has guided BMS to qualify for the finals of the Suva competition this weekend.

With assistance from ex-scholars of the 1990s, BMS has emerged as one of the force to be reckoned with in the competition this season.

All its teams from under-15, U17 and open grade have qualified to the knockout stage.

President of the 90s ex-scholars association, Railala Sawailau said they were pleased with the outcome of this year's result. She said the association had given about $2000 of sponsorship this season.

She said the girls were challenged to give their best and would receive support and sponsorship from old scholars.

"We, the class of 90s are helping BMS in all sports this year," she said.

"We're running the show when it comes to sports and we've made a deal with the girls that we will support them all throughout if they win all competition."

She said they were proud with the outcome, so far. Sawailau said the inclusion of Vonolagi as head coach was a huge boost.

"We have Seruwaia Vonolagi as the head coach of the team and she is making a change in the team. Her experience is helping the girls and we credit her for her hard work."

The Class of 90s are also sponsoring the uniforms for other sports such as hockey, volleyball, cricket and rugby.
