Wow-what a masterclass of quality softball we saw from our boys’ teams at the Glasshouse District Interschool Sport Softball over the past two Fridays. For the first time ever, our Boys A and B Teams won the Glasshouse District Interschool Softball competition to become 2021 A and B Division Champions.
The A Boys played some incredible games remaining unbeaten throughout the whole competition. Some amazing catches in critical moments clinched some very tight games showing the tenacity and determination of these boys and their coach Mr Mick Jeays. The A boys made a great comeback in the final to defeat St Michael’s College 8 – 2 after trailing 1-2 after the first innings.
The B Boys teams also had a fantastic competition playing against Peachester State School in the final. The game ended in a tie so both teams claim the win! This success shows the depth in skills and talent in our Year 5 and 5 students.
The girls teams had a mixture of wins and losses but improved with every game they played. The A Girls team only lost to St Michael’s teams beating Maleny 12 – 4 in the third and fourth final to finish in third place. The B team won three games and lost three to finish in fifth position overall. They beat Maleny in the final which was a great result as Maleny had beaten them in the round robin games. Everyone learned lots and had fun over the weeks of training and two weeks of competition.
