NZSS Junior Softball Tournament

The Hamilton Girls’ High Junior Softball team headed to Auckland for the NZSS Junior Softball Tournament. In a challenging double round-robin the girls came up against a number of strong teams.  The girls performed very well on the diamond improving in every game.  It was a close call in making the finals as we had to beat Massey whom we lost to 4-2 a couple of days earlier.  The team played out of their skin showing their basic skills that they had learnt and put them into practise, which saw us beat Massey High 5-2. The final match was going to be a hard task, as One Tree Hill had beaten every team, excluding us by double figures.  The team exceeded all expectations and played outstandingly.  Although the girls lost the final 4-0, One Tree Hill had to fight very hard for each of those runs which took them 7 innings to get.  A fantastic four days away and it was fantastic to be able to come away with second place.  A huge thank you to Miss Brittany Kenney, Angela Johnstone, Pania Shepherd, Pania Monk and Casey Downs as well as the generous support of the following sponsors:
