Last Updated: Sunday, 30 September 2012 Published: Friday, 07 March 2008 Written by Administrator

The Leap Year was surely marked with a lot of leaping, drumming and shouting by the Convent High school students when after two thrilling games, the CHS Jays Limited, Under 14 and Under 16 Netball teams became Zone A champions for 2008.


On Friday 29th February, the Under 14 netball team made light work of the Wesley High School by defeating them with a score of 25-5. Simone Green made 15 goals from 22 attempts while Simone Casimir scored 9 out of 15 attempts. However, it was their historic and rather thrilling game on Monday 3rd March, against Pierre Charles Secondary School (PCSS) that sealed their space in the semi- finals. The CHS team was able to crush PCSS 36- 0.

The Under 16 team kept their crowd entertained on Friday after the Under 14 victory, when they came up against the Dominica Grammar School at the CHS court and were able to defeat them 27-12. Teri-Ann Nelson scored 13 out of 30 attempts while Cheznelle Sorhaindo, who is normally dynamic on the defence, scored 14 out of 41 attempts. Mention must be made of the impressive teamwork, especially the defence by Captain, Omean Charles and Asheibba Lloyd.

The Under 16 will take on the Goodwill Secondary School who are Zone B runner-ups on Wednesday 12th March 2008 from 3:00 p.m. in the Semi-finals. The Under 14 are still awaiting the name of the opponent in their semi-final game.

Mrs. Julia Douglas-Johnson was really impressed with her team’s effort and congratulates them. The teams now concentrate on defeating the Zone B competitors who in the past have proven challenging for the Convent High School. The last time the CHS won the National Netball title was in 2001. The students are optimistic and determined to bring the championship home in the Year of Excellence: the 150th Anniversary of existence of the Convent High School.
