These fabulous young ladies competed in the district Year 9 rounders tournament and I’m delighted to report they finished 3rd overall. They had a great victory over Bishop Fox’s and only narrowly lost to Castle and the winners Heathfield 13 – 10. They batted and fielded so well and proved themselves to be tough competition.
Equally as important (or maybe more so) they were an absolute credit to themselves and our school. They were polite, great sports and gracious in victory as well as defeat. They also thanked the organiser of the tournament at the end and helped tidy up equipment, when all of the other schools had left. In fact the Head of Girls’ PE emailed to thank me: “Also, please pass on to your girls how enthusiastic, helpful and a pleasure to be with – at the end of a long day they made me smile.”
