ROUNDERS: U14s vs Bootham U15s

Score: Lost 13.5-9.5

Player of the Match: Celia (Year III)

Our U14s were thrown into the deep end on Tuesday afternoon with their first Rounders fixture of the year - without any training sessions yet!

They did fantastically well fielding in the first inning and managed to catch out 2/3s of the opposition. Their confidence in batting increased in their second inning, with several full rounders won by several members of the team.

The highlight of the match was a fantastic one-handed catch by Celia to put out one of Boothams batters, winning her the Player of the Match title. There was some fantastic teamwork and communication on display from all players, including backing up on 2nd post and moving around to cover space.

Well done to Isabella also, who had never played the game before and did a fantastic job.

Upcoming Fixtures

For anyone wanting a challenge, Mrs Rastall will be undertaking the Swimathon Challenge in May, swimming 30.9km - or 1,236 lengths of a 25m Pool - that's around 1.82km every day for 17 days in a row.

The Swimathon event actually takes place over the Leave Out weekend - 6th - 8th May, however Mrs Rastall is keen to see girls getting in our own wonderful pool during lunchtimes or the Swim Club sessions to take on a challenge for themselves - from 400m, 1,5km, 2.5km, 5km or even a team 1.5km or 5km.
