The GCC Boys B team Softball team are Glasshouse Champions. Four teams played against other Glasshouse District Schools over the past two Fridays. Our teams showed their skill in both fielding and batting hitting many huge balls and making some impressive catches.
The Boys B team played nine round games and won every game, some comfortably and some after a tight battle where they had to dig deep. This performance put them into the the finals where the boys played Glasshouse SS in the final. Our boys batted first getting six home and then got Glasshouse out with only two runs scored to win 6 – 2. This was a fantastic result for a team who were great at batting, pitching and fielding.
The A boys teams also played really well with accurate fielding and quick balls to base one getting many batters out. They also qualified for the finals only having one loss to St Michael’s in round play. They were beaten 17 – 7 by St Michael’s College but the score was 7 – 7 at the end of the first innings which was very tight. GCC finished Runners Up after some great softball and a close game.
The A Girls team had a great second day of competition finding a way to conquer a Qld State pitcher and win against her Elimbah team. They just missed out on making the final by one run and played Maleny in the 3 vs 4 playoff. They lost this game and finished 4th overall in a very high quality competition.
The Girls B team were mostly very new to softball and improved with every game they played. They had a mixture of wins and losses and played off for 5th and 6th. They had lots of fun in this last game against Delaney’s Creek and finished 5th overall which was a great result.
These students were all great representatives of GCC and played their very best in every game. They encouraged each other and worked really well together as teams. It was great to have lots of parents supporting the teams too and your encouragement was fantastic. Special thanks go to Mrs Selena Robertson and Mrs Kerry Knapp for their help with the A and B boys teams each week.
Students are now looking forward to next terms interschool sport which is soccer and netball. Trials will be held in the first few weeks of Term 2.
