U13 Dodgeball Regional Champions

Yes, you read it right – Dodgeball – we started a Dodgeball club about 8 weeks ago (driven by our students) and Mrs Davidson entered us into the Secondary Schools Regional Championships. We have a core group of students who play outside of school and some other students trying it for the first time.

Having read the information last week we realised that the tournament was a mixed one where two girls must start each set. The matches were made up of 6 sets of 2 minutes – win the most sets you win the game. Our 5 girls had only had one training session (a crash course) before today and only one of our squad of 10 plays outside of school – our captain and dodgeball hero Mikey!

The teamwork was phenomenal and the tactics played to perfection – super proud of all the team for their effort and determination – ONTO THE NATIONALS!!
