We had our second rounders fixture of the week on Wednesday, travelling to Ranby to play in a triangular fixture with the hosts and Wellow. We were pleased to get this fixture played having had to cancel our match against Ranby earlier in the term due to wet weather.
For the Year 3 players this was only their second time playing competitive rounders but it didn't take them long to get into the swing of things. It was clear we had learned a great deal from the match on Monday against LMS and great to see all the girls taking on board the feedback from this game.
We played three games of timed innings and ended up with a win, draw and a loss! Altogether St Hugh's scored 11 rounders, with a number of players scoring at second. Olivia was or highest scorer this week, and Sophie scored a full rounder of a superb hit in the first game. Our fielding also improved throughout the afternoon, with players learning to back each other up, particularly on the backward hits.
Well done to players.
