Defending senior champions Holmwood Technical and junior champions Denbigh High will be seeking to extend their winning records when quarterfinal action in the Inter-secondary Schools sports Association (ISSA) rural schoolgirls netball competition gets under way today at Manchester High.

After a dominant season so far where they have overwhelmed all their opponents, the Carlene Graham Powell-coached Holmwood will come face to face with home team Manchester High at 12:30 p.m. Despite winning all their matches so far this season, the home team will find the defending champions very hard nuts to crack. Holmwood were outstanding in second-round action, where they defeated York Castle 72-21, Herbert Morrison 58-21, Anchovy 40-12, and Frome 61-14 .

Denbigh, who are also all island junior champions,look set to get the better of Hampton when they meet at 11 a.m. in junior action.
