Year 7 and 8 Rounders Tournaments

In recent days, University Academy Kidsgrove’s rounders teams have been quite busy!  On Thursday 20th June, the year 7 Rounders team played their first ever tournament together. They were very nervous, but this didn’t stop them playing well.

The girls improved with each game, and by the end their fielding was really tight and they gelled as a team.  The girls remained positive and very excitable throughout and did the school proud!  Well Done!

A few days earlier, on Tuesday 18th June, year 8 girls took part in the annual Newcastle Schools Rounder’s Tournament at Wolstanton High.

The team consisted of only 7 players instead of 9, and despite this the girls played brilliantly.  Their batting was superb and their fielding was really tight considering the lack of players.  The girls were fantastic and supportive of one another, showing great sportsmanship towards other schools!  Well done girls! Miss Hambleton is very proud!
