Bat Smashers Softball Report
On Friday 3rd August the NPS Bat Smashers played in the Lightning Premiership.
The Bat Smashers team played four games against other schools. We won three out of the four, which was a fantastic effort. All players tried their best and played really well. We scored lots of home runs because players ran the bases effectively. Best on the field was the whole team because they all did their best and took a lot of catches.
Even though we didn’t get in the grand final, we were very proud of how we played and supported each other throughout the day. I think the Lightning Premierships went really well.
The following players made valuable contributions during the games: Chase Dixon, Bobby Hall, Kobi Pelchen, Declan Crisp, Devlin Duncan, Aiden Woolley and Lucas Spokes. Odin Mutimer and Grace Mullane (Co-Captains) did a great job guiding the team.
