A lovely hot day resulted in a great win for our girls at rounders. With only 2 schools to compete against we managed to win a game against Selwood and had a close game with St Dunstons which means we came 2nd overall resulting in us heading to the Mendip finals next week. The girls worked really hard and managed to find their rhythm where they produced some good batting and great fielding!

A well deserved win!
