Match report: U14 rounders v Hellesdon High School

Our U14 rounders team travelled over to Hellesdon High School for a very sunny but windy afternoon of rounders yesterday. During this fixture, I saw excellent fielding that prevented the opposition from scoring highly against us. Well done to Ashlyn G for using her long-barrier to good effect! I am pleased to report that we won by a margin of three-and-a-half rounders.  Player of the Match award went to Mia D, as nominated by the opposition –  most likely for scoring six rounders! Congratulations to everyone.

Match report: U14 rounders v Thetford Grammar School

Yesterday our newly-formed U14 rounders team played their first game of the season in a very close match against Thetford Grammar School . There was just half a rounder in it at the end, with a final score of twelve rounders to Thetford and eleven and a half to us. What a closely fought match – it literally came down to the last ball of the game!  Player of the Match was awarded to Mia D, for her great hitting throughout!

Team player of the season: Sophie’s hockey highlights

Talented hockey player Sophie B  (Year 10) has had an exceptional season with her club, Norwich Dragons. Her Ladies 3’s Team won the Empresa Norfolk Women’s Hockey League Premier Division this season and will now be promoted into the East Women’s League, and towards the end of the season Sophie also played a number of matches for the Ladies 2’s Team who already play in the East Women’s League and missed out on promotion by a solitary point.

Last Saturday evening at the club’s annual awards at Sprowston Manor, Sophie was voted Ladies 3’s Team Player of the Season by her team mates.  A great end to her first season in ladies hockey as part of a fantastic club!

On Sunday Sophie and 15 team mates represented Norfolk in the Girls U15 East Region Hockey Championships at the UEA Sportspark against six other counties. The team and coaches have been together for three seasons now and having won in 2016 and come 2nd in 2017, they prevailed again this year to reclaim the title as 2018 champions. A great result from a talented bunch of hockey players and coaches with huge team spirit, a great will to win and a determination to play for each other.

Well done, Sophie!
