Four teams of Year 6 and Year 7 students have begun a three week Inter-school Softball competition against other Glasshouse District Schools. Teams compete for just over two hours with the Year 7 and Year 6 girls playing two games and the Year 6 boys playing three games.
Teams have been selected from students who were keen to play and they have been practising for a couple of weeks now.
Pitching is proving the major difference between teams, but our teams have shown some fantastic batting, throwing and catching skills and have been very competitive.
The Year 6 boys had three clear wins last Friday, beating Beerwah, Peachester and Maleny schools. The boys showed some very slick fielding to limit the runs scored against them to six whilst scoring 38 runs themselves. The Year 6 girls and Year 7 boys both won one game and lost one game whilst the Year 7 girls lost both games but gained much experience.
The teams play again on Friday in week 6 and week 8 and the students are looking forward to more practise and game experience. Parents are welcome to come and support our teams at Beegees Sports Grounds from 12 noon.
