On June 17th, 9 pupils took part in the Newcastle Schools Rounders Tournament. Although this was a Y9 tournament, the team consisted of a mixture of years 7, 8 and 9. Despite the age difference in competitors the girls played exceptionally well. Their fielding was outstanding and the other teams could hardly score anything past them. The most a team actually scored was 3 rounders; compared to our massive 8!
The girls made it through to the Semi-Finals where they narrowly missed out by 1 ½ rounders against Sir Thomas Boughey.
The academy is so proud of the girls as they showed determination, resilience and fantastic team work!
When they enter next year against their own age group they will certainly be a team to watch out for!
