THE Fiji Secondary Schools Netball Association will select a national under-18 side from the National Secondary Schools Netball Championship which ended last night in Suva.
Association president Lisi Narokolevu said although they do not have any tour planned for this year, they would still keep an U18 team to help the national governing body with selection of the future U21 side.
The two-day championship, however, had an U17 team from Auckland made of Fijians residing there.
Narokolevu said the inclusion of the Auckland Select team intensified the competition and provided the local teams an opportunity to gain some international exposure.
Meanwhile, defending champions Natabua High School was battling Saint Joseph's Secondary School in the U15 grade final when this edition went to press last night.
The U17 and U19 grades were still playing their semi-final matches.
