LEVUKA Public School is out to defend its Fiji Secondary Schools hockey titles in Suva next week.

The Ovalau-based school, which dominated the sport in its early days, scooped the under-19 for the boys and girls divisions last year and the U16 girls title.

Earlier this week, the Fiji Secondary Schools Hockey Association announced that LPS would be defending their titles after both U19 teams qualified from the Ovalau District.

Saint John's College from Cawaci will also be represented in the U19 and U16 grades for both boys and girls competition.

Association president Immanuel Prasad said LPS would face tough competitions from other schools such as Tilak High School and Marist Brothers High School.

The boys from Flagstaff will be defending their U16 title and will be gunning to scoop the U19 top prize away from LPS.

The national hockey competition will be held at the National Hockey Centre on August 14-16.
