Junior Girls' School hosts AJIS Netball Tournament

Friday, 13 March 2009

Once again the Junior Department of Bolton School Girls' Division has played host to the annual Association of Junior Independent Schools' (AJIS) Netball Tournament.

The competition, run at the School's netball pitches at Leverhulme Pavilion, proved as popular as ever with 22 independent schools from across the North-West sending teams. 

Bolton School's A team made it through to the Plate semi-finals but went out, losing 4-1 to St Bede's. 

The overall winners of the competition were Estcourt Preparatory School, who overcame King Edward Queen Mary's School 9-2 in the final. 

The winners of the runners-up prize, the Plate, were Manchester High School for Girls who beat their "local rivals" St Bede's, 6-1. 

The prize for best effort from a "smaller school" went to Abbey Gate College.
