Spalding High School hosted the annual Year 10 district rounders tournament.

Taking part were Sir John Gleed, University Academy Holbeach, Deepings, Bourne Grammar, Peele, Spalding High and Bourne Academy (two teams).

After narrowly losing their first game to University Academy Holbeach 3½-3, the High School girls needed to win their next two matches to stand any chance of topping their league and reaching the final.

They beat Sir John Gleed School (7½-1½) and Bourne Academy 1 (8½-0) which meant the league was decided on the number of rounders scored and conceded.

The High School girls’ superior advantage ensured a final against the other league winners, Bourne Grammar School.

The High School girls gave another commanding performance, winning the tournament thanks to a 8½-4½ victory.

They will now go on to represent the district at the Sainsbury’s Schools Games finals on July 8.
