Wick High School's S2 netball team have progressed to the plate knockout competition in the Scottish Schools Cup after coming through regional qualifiers.
Their first match was against a well-drilled and experienced team from Kirkwall Grammar, who should go far in the competition. Wick were well beaten by 35-9. Wing attack Sophie Mackenzie was deservingly voted best Wick player.
The next match was against Fortrose Academy with Wick coming out on top by 10-6. Megan Tucker, playing goal defence, was voted Wick’s stand-out player.
The last game saw a comfortable 15-5 win for Wick against Nicolson Institute from Lewis. Sophie Mackenzie was again voted Wick’s top player.
These results give Wick the runners-up spot in the league to qualify for the plate competition. They could now meet a school from anywhere in Scotland.
Coach Pam Bain said: "This is a great achievement by the girls and well deserved."
