NATABUA High School successfully retained the Fiji Secondary Schools Badminton titles in the boys and girls competition on Tuesday.

The boys side retained the title for the ninth consecutive year while the girls retained the title for the sixth consecutive year.

The sides overcame tough challenges from Rishikul Sanatan College and hosts Yat Sen Secondary School in the JR White-sponsored tournament in Suva.

Team co-ordinator Ranjeev Singh said their girls Team A was first while Team B was third.

He said only the boys failed to win their individual categories.

"In the Individual events, Natabua missed out in the boys category which saw both their two semi-finalists, William Pau'u and Alosio Vuniivi, losing out to Aninda Saha of International Suva and Martin Feussnar of Rishikul respectively," Singh said.

"Saha went on to claim the Men's Individual title defeating Feussnar in the finals.

"The Women's category saw a dominant stage as all four semi-finalists were from Natabua.

"Radhika Sharma, Chloe Kumar, Lei Wen Hung and Ting Ting Huang battled it out for top honours.

"Radhika Sharma and Chloe Kumar advanced to the finals that saw Sharma retain her Women's Individual title for the second time over Kumar."

Natabua student Lei Wen Hung was awarded the Upcoming Player of the Tournament Female award and Aninda Saha of International Suva, the Upcoming Player of the Tournament Male award.
