Zone A’s Inter-College President, Lesaisaea Matafeo Reupena, who is also Avele College’s Principal, was pleased with the outcome of yesterday’s competition.
He was especially grateful to the support of parents, teachers and all the students who made yesterday a successful day.
Matafeo said the latest success from Athletics Samoa at the Oceania competition in Fiji earlier this year has revived interest in the competition.
Many students from Zone A schools represented Samoa.
Matafeo added the athletes at schools are grassroots level and it is vital that their skills are honed from such a young age.
Many of them, he said, will go on to represent Samoa at the Pacific Games in 2019.
