Queen Victoria School principal Silivio Vueti is ecstatic of the overall wins secured by the four grades that competed in the finals of the Coke Zero Deans Competition yesterday.
QVS bagged four titles, U14, U15, U16 and U17, two more than they did last year.
In an interview Vueti said the school had switched onto celebration mode immediately after the U17 win, successfully accomplishing their set goals for the finals.
“Our boys played well and displayed the potential that they have along with the assistance of the coaches and the managers as well as the support of the parents and teachers,” he said.
The feat earned the Tailevu school a prize money of $3,400 which Vueti said would be distributed to either the players or the parents.
“We will wait for things to get back to normal before we can discuss how to distribute the cash prize but right now we are already on celebration mode,” he said.
The principal was particularly impressed with the U17 victory that ensured they bag four out four titles.
QVS secured a narrow victory against lone west-based school Natabua in the final phase of play after being down 13-10 for most of the second half with a try from Apisai Waqanituva. QVS won 15-13.
“The boys showed sheer guts and they were not deterred by the point margin at halftime and fought until the end,” he said.
