The U14 team, who move into the last 8 of the National competition, saw off a spirited Sandringham team, even though half the team was absent from school on the day of the final.
The U15 team also continue in the National competition after Easter, but got off to a slow start against Highfield School, but with patience and skill the squad slowly edged ahead to win comprehensively in the end.
The U16 team came up against a very good Beaumont team, having had a tough season just to make the final was a great feat for this group of hardworking boys, unfortunately they could not finish it off with a win, losing to Beaumont on the night.
The last game of the finals saw the U18 team beat a good St George's side, in a close match the Senior squad eventually ran out winners by a comfortable margin.
