Foundation and QC in netball final

Christ Church Foundation and Queen’s College will clash in the final of the Barbados Secondary Schools Under-16 Netball League at the Netball Stadium today.

Foundation advanced to the final when they managed to hold off former winners Lester Vaughan 23-21 in last Thursday’s semi-final, which could have gone either way.

Queen’s College chalked up a massive 30-15 victory over Graydon Sealy for an easier advance.

Sandrene Jordan, Foundation’s coach, told NATIONSPORT she was pleased her team made it to the final.

However, she pointed out that they needed to play a stronger defence.

“We played in patches. The first quarter was good and for the second, the last six minutes were good,” Jordan said.

Need team defence


“If I can only get them to play consistent netball and play defence instead of leaving it for the goalkeeper and the goal defence to do, and have a team defence, we will be alright

Despite their shortcomings she mentioned that she expected them to be at the top of of the competition.

“I expect to win. I expect to go all the way. Last year we came second and I really don’t want a second again this year,” she said.

“Lester Vaughan were in the final last year and we lost by a point. This year we have Queen’s College. Queen’s are a good team but the game is played on the day”.

Chase gets 17


Wearing the goal attack bib, national player Chiara Chase sunk 17 of 25 attempts while Carol-Ann Nurse supported with six of eight.

Chase’s strength and expertise at the ring gained as part of the national side will once again be joined with that of her teammates in the hope of taking home the title.

Queen’s College will also have the strength of National Under-16 captain Jenine Forde, who netted 19 of 26 against Graydon Sealy. Kaelyn Shockness scored 11 of her 18 attempts.

St Michael and Springer Memorial are expected to come face to face in the Under-13 final.
