Queen's netballers overpower Tivoli
Raymond Graham, Sunday Gleaner Writer
Defending urban senior netball champions, the Queen's School, started the defence of their Inter-secondary Schools Sports Association title in style last Friday with a 60-2 win over Tivoli High at the Pembroke Hall netball court.
Despite losing six members of last year's team, including national senior players Shanice Beckford, Khadijah Williams and Shameera Sterling, Queen's proved too classy for their rivals and coach Marvette Anderson was pleased with her team's display.
"We have lost six players but four juniors with experience have moved up and they come with experience playing at the National Under-16, Under 21 and Club league levels and I am very confident in their ability," said Anderson.
Earlier in their junior encounter with hosts Pembroke Hall, Queen's won 61-1.
Three other schools - Gaynstead High, Holy Childhood High and St Jago High had double wins.
Gaynstead's juniors swamped Mona High 52-4 before the seniors took care of business 38-13 over their counterparts.
Holy Childhood and St Jago remained unbeaten in Group B after the juniors and seniors from both schools picked up their second wins in a row. Holy Childhood's juniors had a 27-9 win over Merle Grove before the Seniors closed off the double with a big 44-11 victory.
St Jago's juniors won 26-11 and the seniors 34-23 in matches against Vauxhall High.
