?Athletes from Natabua High School and Jasper Williams are the only ones that have been able to achieve photo finish, and have continued to improve on their performances.?

?The other secondary school?s zone competition was held in week eleven, while the Lautoka Zone competition was in week eight.? There is enough time to prepare our athletes for the main competition,? he said.

The third time trials were held last week Saturday at the Natabua High School Grounds, and were hosted under the supervision of the teachers, coaches, managers and education officers.

The fourth time trial will be held at the same venue, this Saturday.
