DGS students compete in County Rounders tournament

Our Year 7 and 9 Rounders teams had both recently been crowned South Oxfordshire Champions and so qualified for the County round.

The county championship was a very busy day consisting of 9 matches for both age groups. The girls played some fantastic Rounders, worked really well as a team and motivated and supported one another in order to play at the best possible standard. The results for Year 7 were as follows:

 

Bartholomew 7 1/2 - 2 WIN

Gillotts - 5 1/2 - 3 1/2 WIN

Banbury - 8 - 5 WIN

Gosford Hill - 2 - 3 1/2 LOSS

Faringdon CC - 5 1/2 - 4 WIN

Oxford Spires - 8 - 2 WIN

Oxford Academy - 2 1/2 - 3 1/2 LOSS

Chipping Norton - 8 - 0 WIN

John Mason - 5 - 3 1/2 WIN

An amazing set of results, gaining the team 3rd place and bringing home a Bronze medal!

The Year 9 team faced some tough competition too and came away winning 3 games and losing 6. Both teams were fantastic DGS ambassadors and enjoyed a day out playing lots of Rounders.
