Sports Results: U15 rounders v City of Norwich School

On Thursday last week, our U15 rounders team played Thetford Grammar School -unfortunately losing our fixture by half a rounder! The Player of the Match accolade went to Aisling Kendall who managed to bowl both innings without giving away any half rounders – a very difficult task, well done! Other notable performances came from Alice Parker who took two great catches and Amy Hayhoe who scored two and a half rounders.
