Net service resumes in schools

For most kids summer is halfway done and thoughts are squarely on vacations.

At this point most consider mention of school or anything associated with it close to an abomination.

However many might change their tune with news of the final results of their school netball teams.

School teams were split up into two leagues according to age groups. The Under 13 league consisted of six sides while the under 15 league had seven.

New Horizon high school was the big winner in the Under 13 league. The team finished unbeaten at 5-0, scoring the most goals in their league (45) while giving up the fewest (13).

Heritage high school was a close second at 4-1. The team scored the second most goals (34) while allowing the third fewest (23).

Leading Edge grabbed the third spot at 3-2 and were in the middle of the pack statistically, nabbing 29 goals while giving up the same number.

After Leading Edge came St. Ignatius (2-3), Triple C (1-4) and Pace (0-5).

In the Under 15 division Pace set the tone as the squad went unbeaten at 7-0. The squad dominated on both sides of the court by scoring a league-leading 65 goals while allowing a league-low 27 goals.

New Horizon barely grabbed second place at 5-1-1, holding off Leading Edge who had an identical record.

The stats show the difference between the two as New Horizon scored the second-most goals (62) while allowing the third fewest goals (32).

Leading Edge were not far behind netting 48 goals (third-most) while allowing 33 goals.

St. Ignatius one was the last team with a winning record as the side finished 4-3. The side were a balanced team that scored 31 goals while allowing the same amount of goals.

From there came Heritage (2-5), St. Ignatius two (2-5), Cayman Prep two (1-1-5) and Cayman Prep one (0-1-6).

Games were played at the various schools across Grand Cayman during the academic year.

At this point the local netball scene is on a breather but the action is set to heat up again shortly with the introduction of the Cayman Islands Netball Association Mixed League.

That league generally starts the end of August or early September.

From there will come the next season of the U13 and U15 leagues with the senior women’s league taking place thereafter.
