Both Year 9 and 10 Rounders teams take the gold at the District tournament.
On Monday 19th June Miss Cameron and Miss Esterhuizen took the Year 9 and 10 Rounders teams to Monks Walk for the District Rounders tournament.
The Year 9 team played Mount Grace and Chancellors in their pool games winning both to progress to the semi finals vs Stanborough. In a close game, our Year 9 team did very well and showed excellent batting skills to really take control of the 2nd innings and progress to the final vs Yavneh. Again, two very similar sides in terms of their fielding skills meant it was a close final up until the last few minutes where BHGS showed good composure and some good catches to finish in 1st place and become District Champions.
The Year 10 team played Onslow and Stanborough in their pool games with both opposition schools testing the BHGS team in different ways. After a few initial nerves by the BHGS team, the girls rallied round and improved their communication to help win both games and progress to the semi finals. The BHGS team continued to improve in confidence and skill level throughout the tournament and won their semi final vs Yavneh to move into the final game vs Onslow. As both teams had played each other in the pool rounds there were a few tactical changes to both fielding sides and placing their hits became even more important in an attempt to try and find space. Both teams did very well in taking advantage of the oppositions mistakes and consistent bowling became the difference between Onslow and the BHGS Year 10 team. In the end, the game was very close but our BHGS Year 10 team emerged as winners and finished the season as District Champions.
A big well done to both teams for their excellent performances – a great way to finish off the year!
