Sports Report - Rounders Tournament Year 9
Last night accompanied by Mrs House and Mrs Hedaux the yr 7 girls travelled to KAS for their 3rd rounders tournament.
The girls were great company and in great form . Other staff commented on their fantastic batting skills and most teams were unable to cope with the hard hitting of the group.
In the 1st game Katie S, Ava S , Frey J all hit rounders scoring with ease as their strong hit sailed over the KAS heads. Tight fielding also meant that the score was 10 1/2 to 4 . win no. 1
The second game saw CT score a similar 8 1/2 . RB were only able to respond with 4 1/2 due to some great quick thinking by the trio Freya/ Rileigh and Ava. win no.2
The 3rd game against BCA was a little more frustrating as the batting was not so easy with the BCA bowler cleverly bowling slightly wider making hitting more difficult. Still Rileigh, Katie, Freya and Amelia with clever running managed to score 8 . Much quicker awareness by the CT girls meant BCA were kept to just 3 1/2 . Win no.3
By the time game no. 4 came around it was 'spitting with rain and 5the surface becoming slippery. Haygrove needed to leave early so a reduced game was negotiated...Haygrove batted first and CT were unsettled, not concentrating, made a few dopey decisions and allowed Hay to score 8. The girls however knew they could score 8 and Ava and Frey in the first 2 balls had started a strong attack-both scoring with fantastic hits. Clever running brought the score close but very sharp fielding from hay stopped some fantastic hits from scoring full rounders and despite heroic running the girls could only score 4 . so the last game left Haygrove as overall winners .
Well done to all...just some work on movement'just in case'(cover) to make this fantastic squad even better!
