St Bonaventure's School was packed to capacity on Saturday as the under-14 girls beat Bracknell Cobras 104-52 to secure their progress.

And it will be the second year they have battled their way through to the showpiece event at the National Sports Centre in Manchester on the weekend of May 4-5.

Meanwhile, clubmates in the under-14 boys' squad ran out 96-58 winners over Milton Keynes to make a little bit of club history as the first Youngbloods under-14 boys' team to reach the last four.

Delighted coach Caroline Charles said: “It's an honour they thoroughly deserved after all their hard work through the season. The girls and boys go to Final Fours undefeated and we really hope it will remain that way.”
