Academy Rounders Champions
Y9 Girls become rounders champions
Our Y9 girls rounders team recently became North Lincolnshire schools rounders champions! The tournament was held at Baysgarth school on Tuesday 3rd June. The girls made an excellent start beating St Bedes 8 – 2.5. A close encounter with South Axholme followed resulting in a 3-3.5 loss before they beat Fredrick Gough 6-2 to finish as group winners. The girls then played Brumby in the semi final where the girls found their batting form scoring 8 rounders from 21 balls to reach the final. Vale were the opponents in the final and it was they who batted first setting the Axholme Academy girls a target of 6 for victory which they achieved with 2 balls to spare. The team will now go on to represent North Lincolnshire in the Humber School Games at Hymers College on 11th July.
