UWI SAGICOR Blackbirds ‘A’ are celebrating their third victory in the Barbados Netball Association’s Division 1 League.

The Blackbirds, who claimed the knockout and the league titles last year and seized this year’s knockout title some weeks ago, defeated Pine Hill Dairy St Barnabas 46-35 on Monday night at the Netball Stadium to bring them another step closer to retaining their league title.

Talented goal shooter Shonica Wharton, who set a 52-goal record at the AFNA World Qualifier in St Maarten playing for the Under-21 Bajan Gems, again showcased her shooting skills.

She sank 36 of her 48 attempts as the Blackbirds’ smooth and fast-paced midcourt artistry led them to an easy 11-goal win. (RG)
