It’s been another great season for Rounders’ this year. The teams have had the opportunity to play in the Andover league and the School Partnership league. Every week the girls have attended training and shown excellent commitment. Some of our best results were; Year 8 winning the Partnership league, Year 9 beating John Hanson 19½ to 12½, Year 7 beating Stonehenge and the Year 9/10 team qualifying for the School Games Final.
The School Games final competition was held at Marlborough College against teams that needed to qualify to be eligible to compete. The Year 9/10 team played their hardest and showed their best performance I had ever seen at the Wellington Academy. The students went on to beat Lavington and put up a strong fight against Isambard and South Wilts. The girls had a brilliant day out with staff from other schools telling me how impressed they were with our students.
I hope that the teams continue to flourish, and continue to make excellent progress. Well done ladies for a brilliant Rounders’ season! Miss Lingard.
