Today we had the Waikato Inter-Intermediate Softball Tournament at Resthills Park. The Melville Intermediate School Boys team defeated Peachgrove Intermediate School in their first game before beating Morrinsville Intermediate School in their second. They qualified for the Semi-Finals against Tokoroa Intermediate, won that and had to take on Peachgrove Intermediate in the Finals again. Unfortunatly this time Peachgrove were able to win but the Boys can be well pleased with finishing runners up.
The Girls had a series of games against all the other teams in the competition. They defeated Peachgrove Intermediate in the first game 6-2. In the second they beat Morrinsville Intermediate just 6-5. They then accounted for Berkley School 10-7 before beating Te Awamutu Intermediate 9-3. There was a three way tie for first place as the result of the Girls final game against Matamata Intermediate, which Matamata won 4-8. The team had a great day and played exceptionally well! Ata from Room 1 ended up the leading run scorer with eight runs!
