U14 Mixed Rounders Sheffield Champions!

On Thursday 12th June Meadowhead hosted the Sheffield Schools U14 Mixed Rounders Tournament. Meadowhead’s team were in a pool with All Saints and Yewlands. After a close win over All Saints, we went on to beat Yewlands convincingly, scoring seven rounders. Ehsan and Matt both scoring two rounders each.

Our wins saw us progress to the final where we met Tapton and Handsworth Grange. Both games were unbelievably close. All three teams played at such a high standard. The game against Tapton finished in a draw, meaning we needed Handsworth to beat Tapton, which they did!

So, it was down to the last game against Handsworth. Adam’s batting was awesome; scoring the maximum three rounders. Tom, Zhane and Amy also scored valuable points, which edged our score nearer to Handsworth’s.

At the 20th and final ball the score was 6 to Handsworth and 5 ½ to Meadowhead. Ellie Hatton stepped in to bat. She had to score a rounder. Ellie hit the ball low and far. She sprinted round, putting the fielders under pressure. The fielders panicked, throwing the ball to second, but missing it. Ellie continued her sprint, reaching 4th base and scoring the rounder!

Meadowhead were crowned U14 Mixed Rounders Sheffield Champions! This is an outstanding achievement. Congratulations to all the players below that were part of the team.
