There was something of a 'goal-fest' at the Under 15 Town Netball Finals on the Tuesday before the Half Term break for Bolton School Girls' Division with an impressive 86 goals scored by the team whilst conceding only 4! Given that the team played a total of 60 minutes of netball against 6 different opponents in total, that worked out to be a very impressive scoring rate indeed! The final against Canon Slade ended 12-2 in favour of Bolton to see the team become very worthy town Champions for the fourth consecutive season.

A week earlier the U16 girls' netball team also enjoyed success as they became town champions in their age group. After being undefeated in the group stage of the competition, they went on to meet Canon Slade in the semi-final which they won by 12 goals to 5. They then faced St James’s school in the final which they won convincingly 9-2. A special mention must go to the Under 16 ‘B’ team which was a combined squad of Under 15 and Under 16 players who also took part in the tournament, finishing in a very creditable 3rd position in their section.
