Soaring to Division II Competition
 
The University of the West Indies’ Cave Hill Blackbirds will be soaring in the Barbados Netball Association’s Division Two competition next season.
 
They defeated Banks Spurs 31-25 at the Netball Stadium on Friday night to take the third division title with an unblemished record.

 
With captain Monique James making a mockery of Spurs’ goalkeeper Regina Cumberbatch in the circle and sinking a match-high 29 goals from 35 attempts, the Blackbirds took the play-off battle between the two undefeated teams from Zone A and B.

 
Goal attack Giselle Burke scored two of eight.
