A NEW CHAMPION will be crowned in the Under-15 section of the Barbados Secondary Schools’ Netball League.
Last Thursday at the Netball Stadium, Foundation School knocked out defending champions Springer Memorial with a 20-18 victory.
Foundation made fewer attempts, but made the most of them, with Cherisse Douglas scoring 13 from 15 and Khadija Domingo seven from ten.
Springer trailed throughout. Derise Adams scored six from 13, while Adrenne Griffith was more accurate with 12 from 15.
The other upset came when The Lester Vaughan School beat Deighton Griffith 29-21. Behind some fantastic shooting from Pherloria Jordan and Victoria McMillan, Lester Vaughan led 7-3, 11-6 and 23-11.
Jordan scored 11 from 14 and McMillan was even more accurate, with 18 from 20.
The starting combination of Mikael Ramsay and Danielle Gaskin only scored six goals from 12 attempts for Deighton Griffith. The change was made for Barbados Under-16 nationals Shanice Wharton, who scored a perfect six from six, and Allesha Bonnett nine from ten, but they couldn’t overcome the deficit.
In the other matches, Alleyne School hammered Coleridge and Parry (CP) 30-8 and Garrison was even harsher on Combermere, with a 34-8 victory.
Under-16 national Nekela Jordan (22/36) and triallist Tia Jones (8/16) led Alleyne, while Shanise Holder led CP with six goals.
Vanessa Reid-Cox scored 23 from 27 for Garrison, Nikita President six from 11 and Shonica Wharton five from ten. Donika Payne and Rishana Walton both scored four goals for Combermere.
In Tuesday’s semi-finals, Alleyne will play Foundation while Garrison will take on Lester Vaughan in the 3:45 p.m matches.
