The College Premier Netball Team has finished as one of the top two sides in New Zealand following the National Secondary School Championships! Playing in Ashburton this week were the 16 best teams from around the country, which had been decided from regional competitions last month.

Our girls defeated Southland Girls’ High 46-37, St Margaret’s College 27-22, and Wellington Girls’ College 34-27 in pool play. This put them into the top eight where they beat Cashmere High 41-25, Manukura 51-28, and St Mary’s College (Wellington) 41-29 to qualify unbeaten for the final against Mt Albert Grammar (MAGS). This was the fourth time this season these two teams have faced off in a final, with MAGS winning the previous three occasions in the Auckland, Combined Points, and Upper North Island tournaments. In this encounter, MAGS were ahead by one goal after the first quarter, but our girls had tied the scores at 16-16 by halftime. In the second half, MAGS led 28-26 at three-quarter time and went on to win 41-35.

Well done to the team and staff on the great result and for coming so close to being New Zealand champions!
