Paarl Gym took care of business in their match against Pretoria Girls High to keep them alive in the top five zone and Fairmont make their first appearance in the top 10 after a strong showing at the Champions Cup.
A close look at the rankings table for this week will reveal that several teams have entered the race with Menlopark now commanding the top spot followed by Durban Girls College and St Cyprian’s.
