THE?UNIVERSITY?of the West Indies’ Cave Hill Blackbirds will be soaring in the Barbados Netball Association’s Division Two competition next season.
They defeated Banks Spurs 31-25 at the Netball Stadium on Friday night to take the third division title with an unblemished record.
With captain Monique James making a mockery of Spurs’ goalkeeper Regina Cumberbatch in the circle and sinking a match-high 29 goals from 35 attempts, the Blackbirds took the play-off battle between the two undefeated teams from Zone A and B.
