Great results – well done to everyone!
All girls finishing in the top 9 in the county!
Last week was a strong one for the NHEHS rounders teams, although sadly the cricket festival for the U13s and U12s was called off owing to heavy rain on Tuesday.
Our rounders teams put on good performances, winning 3 out of 5 home fixtures.
Our U14As led the way with a 17.5 – 15 victory over West London Free School on the 6th June.
Then we had 40 girls out playing rounders in the home fixture in glorious sunshine vs Godolphin & Latymer School on the same evening.
Despite the U12A team losing narrowly 11.5 – 13.5, the U12Bs won 9.5 – 8.5 (pictured), the U12Cs drew a high scoring game 11.5 each and the U12Ds took the win 17 – 7. POM for the C team was Ishika and Aria for the Bs. Well done everyone!
In tennis, our U13 team narrowly lost to Godolphin & Latymer at home 15-18. Our U14C team took on West London Free School’s A team but lost 29-37.
