In­ver­lochy win schools net­ball com­pe­ti­tion

The Oban Times - - Sport -

HAV­ING won this year’s Fort Wil­liam pri­mary schools net­ball league, St Columba’s, con­tin­ued on good form at the an­nual net­ball tour­na­ment.

The team was nar­rowly beaten in the fi­nal by In­ver­lochy Pri­mary, who were in im­pres­sive shape.

Group stages

Seven pri­mary schools from Lochaber en­tered teams, with Bun- Sgoil Ghaidhlig Loch Abar, Caol, In­ver­lochy and St Columba’s mak­ing it through the group stages.

Brid­get Thomas, Ac­tive Schools co- or­di­na­tor, said: ‘The play­ers pro­duced some great net­ball in the semi-fi­nals and fi­nals, with score­lines which were nail-bit­ingly close.

‘The in­ter-schools net­ball com­pe­ti­tions are or­gan­ised as part of the Ac­tive Schools pro­gramme but would not be pos­si­ble with­out con­sid­er­able help.

‘Hugh thanks to the pupils from Lochaber High School who did a great job um­pir­ing, tim­ing and score-keep­ing, to Fort Wil­liam Fal­cons net­ball club and to the teach­ers, school staff and par­ents who sup­port and coach the pri­mary school teams through the year.’
