The Slough Grammar School Rounders team won the District Rounders Tournament finals on Tuesday 2 July. The year 10 team’s success was a result of weeks of training and beating opponents in heats building up to a final match against St Bernard’s Grammar School. On the last ball, the Slough Grammar girls were half a rounder behind, but team captain Jasmine Khan scored half a rounder bringing the match to a draw. However, the opponent team were given a forfeit of half a rounder for obstruction resulting in a 4½ - 4 final score, leading the ecstatic team to victory.
PE teacher Amber Jackson expressed her pride in the girls, saying “the team has worked incredibly hard this year in honing their teamwork and gaming skills, and they well deserve the title as district champions”.
Slough Grammar School Principal Mercedes Hernandez Estrada said “It is great to see young girls being so committed to sport and determined to win. They showed a great deal of courage and stamina which paired with excellent team work led them to success”
The Slough Grammar School year 9 girls rounders team also enjoyed success by coming 4th place in the Berkshire County School games.
