Auckland Fiji Community Netball buzzed with the success of its U17 team which won the 2015 Fiji National Secondary Schools Tournament U17 section played in Lautoka, Fiji.
Editor’s Note: The victory occurred in August and we received the story about two months ago but paucity of space kept it in a long queue. We apologise.
The team was the only invitational team to play in a tough two-day Tournament comprising top netball schools from various parts of Fiji.
Chelcie Prasad gave the Team a bonus; she was selected by the Fiji Netball Secondary School Officials as the ‘U17 Player of the Tournament.’
The Auckland Fiji Community Netball U17 team comprised girls from different secondary schools in Auckland with links to Fiji in addition to two selected from Fiji.
The team was coached by Club President Livi Hide.
The 2015 team was undefeated in the tournament and won its final against Natabua High School. (In 2014, Natabua beat the Auckland Fiji in the semi-finals by one goal)
