Our Senior A team competed in this final against Hastings Girls’ High School. The large crowd was treated to a close and exciting match, with our team ahead by 2 goals at quarter and half time. Napier Girls’ High School had a strong finish to the third quarter and were 4 goals up at the break (25 – 21). The last quarter was even with Napier winning the game 34 -30. A feature of the match was strong defence throughout the court by both teams.
