Year 9 Rounders Team to Be Crowned the Lancashire Champions

22 July, 2022
Congratulations to the Year 9 rounders team who were crowned Lancashire champions on Thursday 30th June at Prairie sports village in Burnley. The girls beat every team in their group to play Haslingden in the semi finals. Excellent batting and well drilled fielding saw them move into the final with a 7 1/2 to 4 rounder win. The girls were nervous starting the final against Hodgson, who were representing the Blackpool district.
Bowland fielded first and held them to 4 rounders only. As the girls stepped up to bat they rose to the occasion and the Hodgson fielders struggled to cope against some fantastic batting and aggressive running. The final score was 7-4 to Bowland. All of the girls were an absolute credit to the school and themselves. England rounders scouts at the event have selected some of the girls to attend at summer talent camp this year and were incredibly impressed with the quality of players.
Well done Evie B (Captain), Lexi H, Olivia P, Isabel D, Orla B, Imogen L, Emma GR, Sadie W, Jennifer S, Ruby L, Maddie H.
