For more than tens years now, Uganda netball among the secondary schools has been on its highest ebb.

Defending champions St Mary’s Boarding Secondary School – Kitende, runners up St Noa Girls School – Zzana, bronze medalists Buddo Secondary School and Kawanda Secondary School are all through to the last four hurdle.

Kawanda S.S’ only greyish patch was the 32-46 loss to St Noa Girls Zzana.
St Noa Girls topped group B with 8 points, unbeaten with 266 goals scored and the meanest of all defences as they conceded 87 goals.
They play Buddo Secondary School in the semi-finals. Buddo S.S suffered a 32-48 slip to SMASK in one of the group stage matches.
The two semi-final duels shall be played at the Ste Bernadette Sports Complex, Huye – Rwanda.
It will be a battle of tactics from the respective technical dockets of all the four Ugandan teams.

Besides Netball, Uganda has also been dominant in soccer (boys and girls), Table Tennis (boys and girls), Badminton (boys and girls), Swimming and Handball (girls).
