Despite this team only forming 3 weeks ago the Y9 Mixed Rounders Squad have qualified for the South Yorkshire Schools Rounders Competition. Six Y9 girls have been joined by seven Y9 boys with no previous rounders experience and yet have delivered some fantastic performances together as a team. To qualify the team had to finish in the top two schools in the Rotherham Schools Competition. Wickersley took on Winterhill and Oakwood in the group stages and won each game convincingly to top the group. This resulted in us drawing Wath in the Semi Final. This was a much closer game but Wickersley came out on top and won the game 6-5 ½ rounders. Despite already qualifying Wickersley met Aston in the final and in a close game lost by ½ a rounder to become runners up of the Rotherham Competition. This was an incredibly close final and Wickersley are looking forward to taking on Aston again in the South Yorkshire round.
The Squad – Mattia Roberts, Emily Milton, Leanne Cooper, Abi Glossop, Hannah Tipple, Leanne Ncube, Lewis Hobson, Noah Law, Joe Butcher, Joe Massingham, Leo Rowley, Trey Keyworth, James Hatton
