THE Cakaudrove under-13 team was certainly not disheartened by the inclusion of five national reps in the Nadi team but played its best and turned out victorious.

And the players from the Jetset Town shed tears at the final whistle losing of 11-13 to Cakaudrove.

But their coach Ulamila Lagivalu said the girls from Cakaudrove were strong and played well.

"Players from the outer district have shown how netball skills at primary schools level has grown," she said.

"Cakaudrove played very well and this means the rural teams are changing their game tactics. Our teams came in from Viti Levu where resources are readily available but to see these rural teams play well is encouraging."

Cakaudrove's Sovaia Ramacake said their sacrifice and dedication paid off.

"The winning spirit was always with us and spending $1500 to come to Labasa to play has all paid off," she said.

"We only got together in the last two weeks of this school term to train as a team as our members came from all different schools in Cakaudrove.

She said the three-day competition exposed Cakaudrove players to new skills and ideas.

"And after winning this game, we are proud to tell the world that our girls from the rural districts of Cakaudrove have netball skills."
