NEW QUEENS will be crowned in this year's Barbados Secondary Schools’ Under-15 netball competition.
Neither defending champions Alleyne School nor 2011 losing finalists Garrison Secondary have made it to this evening’s semi-finals at the Netball Stadium.
Lester Vaughan will battle Combermere, while Foundation will clash with Springer Memorial.
On Tuesday, Alleyne, with successful Barbados junior players Tia Jones and Ashley Marshall in their line-up, were dumped by Springer Memorial, 40-21.
Garrison’s exit was even less honourable as they defaulted to Combermere.
Springer outplayed deposed queens Alleyne, rushing to a 22-11 lead at half-time with goal shoot Zakiya Kirton sinking 21 of 24 attempts and goal attack Khadija Domingo scoring 19 of 27.
Alleyne rotated players in the hope of stemming the rout with Marshall scoring 12 of 18 as goal shoot and goal attack, while Leah Lashley sank seven of nine.
Christ Church Foundation, with the imposing Lanell Browne controlling the D, pulled off a battling 23-17 win over Queen's College after trailing 12-13 at the half.
Queen’s College’s coach, Brian Holder, probably was proud of junior player Vanessa Bobb as she was brilliant when handed the goal defence bib as well as outstanding at goal attack.
Foundation goal shoot Dasha Bryan scored 21 of 32, while Bobb hit 11 of 15 at goal attack.
The other match saw Lester Vaughan putting out Parkinson Memorial Secondary 22-16 after leading 10-6 at the break.
Lester Vaughan goal shoot Sharika Bullen scored six of 18, while goal attack Tachina Young made 16 of 28.
For Parkinson, goal attack Shaquila Davis scored six of 12, while Tatyana Walrond made eight of ten.
The Under-13 finals will also be played at the Netball Stadium this evening. (KB)
