Netballers from Queen Elizabeth Grammar School, in Alford, have done the double.

The Year 8 netball team celebrated a convincing triumph at the latest district schools competition, winning all six of their matches with comprehensive margins.

The title followed their victory earlier in the month at the DRET Invitational Tournament, in Grantham.

There they won all of their pool games convincingly to take them through to the semi-finals where they dominated The Priory, Lincoln, 15-1.

In the final they met DRET All Stars and won a close-fought match 10-8.
