RATU Navula College suffered a shock loss to Vunisea Secondary School in the under-19 grade of the National Secondary Schools Netball Championship yesterday in Suva.

The two-day tournament which is being played at the National Netball Centre and the LICI Multi-purpose courts has teams from as far as Labasa competing.

Ratu Navula lost to Vunisea Secondary 10-11 in a close tussle putting its title defence in jeopardy.

Adi Cakobau School has emerged favourites in the U19 grade after beating Vunisea 11-6. The Waimanu girls, also overcame Saint Johns College.

Fiji Secondary Schools Netball Association president Lisi Narokolevu said it was still early stages of the competition and the top bets would be revealed after the final round of the pool games today.

"We will have the winner and runner-up from each pool advancing into the quarters," Narokolevu said.

"There are also other teams like Suva Grammar and Nasinu Secondary in the run as well."

Narokolevu said in the U17 grade, the southern schools had the upperhand but western giants such as Ratu Navula remained the force to reckon with.

Some pool games were still in progress when this edition went to press last night. The championship will end today.
