On Tuesday June 6th, Holsworthy College Year 9 rounders team attended the annual rounders tournament at Budehaven Community School, competing against Budehaven, Launceston and Camelford.
After winning the event for the previous two years, a strong team was taken with the hope of being successful again. Games were timed innings, with each team batting for 7 minutes. In extremely windy and cold conditions, the girls did extremely well to cope and showed some great individual batting, as well as brilliant team work when fielding. The results were as follows, with the opposing team selecting a player of the match for each game at the end.
Budehaven B team 2 -13 Holsworthy (Hayley Shadrick player of the match)
Camelford 5 – 10½ Holsworthy (Naomi Cole player of the match)
Launceston 7½- 9 Holsworthy (Naomi Cole player of the match)
Budehaven A team 8 - 10 Holsworthy (Naomi Cole player of the match)
A big well done must go to all the girls for winning the tournament for a third year running. They now head into next Tuesday’s North Devon tournament full of confidence. The team was as follows: Louise Daniel, Lucy Timbury, Sophie Powell, Issy Edworthy, Naomi Cole, Hayley Shadrick, Louise Daniel, Tallulah Thompson, Sophie Hudson
