TAUNTON Girls’ Under-16s volleyball team are through to the National Last 8s finals which will take place at the National Volleyball Centre, in Kettering in March.

At Richard Huish College on Saturday, they beat teams from Beach Academy (Devon), Bishop of Llandaff High School (Cardiff) and Wessex without losing a set to qualify first in the South West region.

They join teams from the South East, North East and North West of England to play for a place in the National Final.

Thanks go to the Taunton Tigers basketball team who allowed the girls to finish their last match.
