Year 5/6 children from 8 schools braved the scorching heat today to compete in the 2nd Borough Rounders tournament. Play kicked off just after 10.30 following a redraw as one team unfortunately couldn’t make it on the day. Schools were drawn into two pools of 4 and played a rounders robin across four pitches.
In pool 1 Dundonald set a high standard throughout their games with excellent team work and tactical play which put them through as top of the group. In Pool 2 the games were much closer with Cranmer just beating Aragon to the top place.
2. St Teresas
3. Joseph Hood
Following some much needed shelter in the shade over lunch the next rounds got started. The semi finals saw seeds play a team from the other pool to secure their places in the final matches.
Results form the final round were as follows:
1st & 2nd Place: Dundonald (9) Vs St Teresas (3.5)
3rd & 4th Place: Cranmer (5.5) V s Aragon (3.5)
5th & 6th Place: Malmesbury Vs Joseph Hood
7th & 8Th Place: Singlegate Vs Hillcross
2. St Teresa’s
6. Joseph Hood
The officials were particularly impressed with the girls across all the schools today as they demonstrated some very confident fielding and some very big hits!
The sportsmanship across the day was good but St Teresa’s won the Ref-spect award with 3 nominations and with particular reference to Jenny who was very supportive of her own team and the opposition demonstrating great sporting behaviour, well done!
Many thanks to the teachers and staff for bringing the teams along and also to Raynes Park high for allowing us to use their brilliant facility.
