Loreto College Coleraine played host to a NEBSSA Year 8 Netball tournament on Friday 9th May, with assistance from sixth form students from Coleraine College.

Loreto entered two teams for the tournament, which ran in two sections. In the first semi-final, the winners of Section A, Cross & Passion College Ballycastle, defeated the Section B runners-up, Loreto College A team, 4-2 after extra time. The second semi-final saw the winners of Section B, the Loreto College B team, win a tightly-contested match against the Section A runners-up, Ballymena Academy, with a final scoreline of 5-3. In the final, Cross & Passion College defeated the Loreto B team 4-2 in another closely-fought encounter.

Mrs Maureen McCullough, Head of PE at Loreto College, commented that the tournament had been a great opportunity for all the Year 8 netballers to prepare for the Year 9 Leagues next season, and that the closely-contested games had shown the young players how well they could respond under tremendous pressure.
