Thursday night a squad of Year 7 & Year 8 boys played in the Central Area Slam Tournament. Other schools entered were NLS, Kenilworth, Myton and Aylesford.
Max Hurtubise, Will Eadon, Kier Wood, Tom Constable, Matt Baker, Ruairidh Macleod, Alex Costa, Greg Virr and Brandon Chevassut have varying experience levels but got a lot from the experience of competitive tennis. After completing the round robin draw the squad made it through to the final. Will and Max won their rubber 3-2 but Aylesford were too strong and took the remaining 2 games.
Well done boys a solid platform to build from. See you at training on Wednesdays, all boys and girls welcome.
The undefeated year 8 team went to Kenilworth with a quality batsman missing in the guise of Fin Purnell. The team collectively were good for their win. Playing on artificial due to weather, the team all bowled an over and Adam Bennett was pick with 3 for 8 off 2 overs. Set 49 to win, Southam openers Eadon and Robson hit 20 off the first 2 overs, before being retired in the 3rd and 4th over respectively. A few very silly shots saw a slightly nervous finish but Southam won by 3 wickets with 6 overs to spare. Robson and Eadon were unbeaten on 20 and 9 and Keir Woods took two very pleasing catches along side the ever improving Hurtibise at keeper. Well done to all the lads involved. Mr Elkerton
Year 7,8, 9 and 10 were all playing rounders matches after school against Princethorpe on Wednesday 13th May 2015. The atmosphere was wonderful due to the beautiful weather and the main fact that all teams had lots of enthusiastic students taking part. There was approximately 70 girls representing Southam College which was outstanding. All of the teams played brilliantly despite the various outcomes of the overall results.
Year 7 played their first real competitive match of the season and have proved they have got lots of potential with excellent batting and fielding skills to build upon. Final score was 8.5 rounders to 21 rounders scored by Princethorpe. Year 8 played amazingly scoring a half rounder off nearly every ball. The final score 23.5 rounders to 13 rounders. Year 9 played well and scored a respectable 7 rounders, unfortunately not quite a win with Princethorpe achieving 12.5 to take the match. Finally, Year 10 were superb, the batting in the second innings was outstanding by all . The game was brilliant from both sides and remained exciting throughout. Final score 14 rounders to 13 rounders, a close but well deserved win.
Well done to all who played and committed their time and effort to represent Southam College P.E department. We are extremely proud of you all, keep it up. Miss Evans
