On Wednesday Years 5&6 attended their first ISA U11 Junior Rounders tournament in Hartford, near Northwich.
It was a close first game against Greenbank School, which our plucky team used as a warm up. The second game was another tough match against Branwood Prep, but SDC soon started to hit their stride and were led excellently by team captain, Biv Gilmartin. Things turned around in the third match against Wilmslow Prep, where both fielding and batting was a lot tighter and sportsmanship was fantastic, and St David's won by four points. Going into the final game against Cransley School, SDC were fielding first and made some outstanding catches, preventing rounders being scored and getting every member of the opposing team out with balls still in play. St David's beat Cransley by 26 points to 8, meaning we came second in the tournament overall.
A proud Ms Fielden, Year 5 teacher, said: "St David's played with fantastic positivity, teamwork and skill throughout the tournament and their excellence was commented on by both pupils and staff of other attending schools and members of the public.
"They should be extremely proud of themselves!"
