NATABUA High School was the toast of the National Secondary Schools Netball Championship that ended yesterday in Suva.

The Lautoka-based school featured in the under-15, U17 and U19 grade finals but only managed to win one title.

Natabua U19 team defeated Labasa's All Saints Secondary School 14-6 in the U19 final at the National Netball Centre to win the major grade.

The side lost to Jasper Williams High School 8-12 in the U17 grade and Saint Joseph's Secondary School 9-16 in the U15 final.

Fiji Secondary Schools Netball Association president Lisi Narokolevu hailed the two-day tournament saying it was a successful one.

"Very competitive tournament. We structured the tournament in such a way that only the best made the knockout stages," Narokolevu said.

"Even in the pool stages, the competition was very close. Some top netball schools couldn't even advance into the next stage from the pool games.

"We try to develop the secondary schools competition to help our national team in the international stage."

Narokolevu thanked the participating school principals, teachers and parents for preparing the players.

She also thanked the Auckland Select U17 team for participating in the championship. The team lost to Natabua in the quarters.

Meanwhile, Nadi won the boys grade while Suva One managed the open grade title.
