Duncanrig Secondary has been crowned Scottish School Netball Champions.

The East Kilbride school came out on top in the open competition against Hamilton's Holy Cross High.

To get to the final both South Lanarkshire schools had to come through a gruelling year of competition, fending off 57 teams from schools across Scotland.

At the open finals at the Ravenscraig Sports Centre both teams put on an impressive display of netball giving the crowd lots to cheer about.  

In the first quarter Duncanrig got off to a flying start, leaving Holy Cross a bit bruised but they came back fighting in the 2nd and 3rd quarter, levelling the match on a few occasions, forcing Duncanrig to dig deep to keep control.  

But in the final quarter Duncanrig held their composure and took the match 48 goals to 40.

The event was supported by South Lanarkshire Leisure & Culture who bussed supporters from both schools plus their feeder primaries to help create a tremendous atmosphere.

Getting both teams into the national final was great news for netball development in the area as many of the players have come through their primary, secondary, club and district netball programmes.

Gerry Campbell, the general manager of SLLC, said: "This was a fantastic event with two very capable teams from South Lanarkshire schools coming head to head in the Scottish Final.

"Well done to both teams and congratulations to Duncanrig Team for coming out on top in Scotland."
