NATABUA High School under-15 side stamped its dominance in the Vodafone Secondary School championship walking away with the top award at Ba's Govind Park yesterday.

The side was unbeaten in the round-robin games defeating defending champion A D Patel 3-1 before outsmarting Vashist Muni 1-0 and Guru Nanak Khalsa College 1-0 to win the competition.

Coca-Cola Games sub junior boys 100m champion Tyron Chambers superbly led his team which also has the services of four rugby players that featured in the Coke Zero Deans competition.

Chambers who was also named the player of the tournament helped his teammates to end the school's 10-year title drought.

Team manager Ranjeev Singh said the players made the school proud.

"It took us 10 years to again win the U15 title and I thank the players for their hard work," he said.

"Discipline and commitment enabled the us to maintain our unbeaten run in the tournament.

"The boys have made the school proud."

Singh also commended the achievement of Chambers and the top goal scorer Jope Lomaloma.

"The awards for Chambers and Jope were the icing on the cake," he said.

"I thank the coaches Sachindra Pillay and George Rao for their guidance and also the school principal Sashi Kumar for his support.

"We dedicate the win to the old scholars, teachers, parents and students for supporting this team."

He added the inclusion of the rugby boys lifted the morale of the players to win the tournament."
