Kadavu aims high

THE barrier of not knowing one another will not stop them from playing their hearts out to win the titles of the Fiji Primary Schools Netball Inter-District Championship held in Labasa.

And playing under the Kadavu primary schools netball banner, the young netters have one thing in mind, and that is to play their best and to reward their tireless training efforts by winning all the six grades.

Being the farthest travelling school taking part in the championship, the netters from Kadavu wowed the crowd with their skilful and defensive netball tactics yesterday.

Team president Kelerayani Tuni said the netters had a very touching story behind their travel to the national meet at Subrail Park.

"Most of the netters only came to know each other in the boat when we travelled to Labasa last weekend," she said.

"They all trained at their respective schools and most of them never met. Only the under-14 players came together for a four-day camp prior to coming over to Labasa.

"It was a bit difficult because the schools were quite a distance from each other and the girls couldn't meet up as a team to bond and share their tactics and game-plan.

"We only had three weeks to train and now we are here as a team to represent the primary schools and the island of Kadavu.

"Our parents, teachers and fans have been so supportive and this is one reason the girls will be playing at their best here in Labasa."

Tuni said their aim was to win all the grades in the championship.

"It's a do or die mission. We are here to take home all the titles and we will do just that."
