After a very successful ACS Season for Westbourne’s 1st Girls Softball Team, who went through the season undefeated and won the Grand Final, the team were invited to participate in the School Sport Associations of Victoria (SSAV) School Premiers Softball Competition. The competition was held at Jells Park, Waverley on Wednesday 4 May and included premier teams from AGSV, GSV and EISM.
In the semi-final against Emmaus College (representing EISM), the Westbourne Girls played brilliantly to win 14 runs to 2 with Lillia G pitching nine strike outs and hitting a homerun.
In the Grand Final the girls played Yarra Valley Grammar (representing AGSV). In challenging weather conditions, the girls again played exceptionally well but ended up down 4 runs to 2. Tristan L crossed the plate twice with the assistance from big hitting by Caitlyn H and Lillia G.
An outstanding effort by our team in a competition that involves over 60 other schools. Congratulations to all the girls involved.
