Sport students from Stratford-upon-Avon College have taken part in their first in-house Softball competition.
Softball is a new area introduced to the curriculum to widen the variety of sports the students study. Though new, it allows to the students to utilise knowledge they have already gained on the course.
Students switched between batting and fielding positions throughout the game
First and second-year students were pitted head-to-head in a Softball match with both teams vying for the top spot. The Sports department runs these competitions throughout the year so students are able to apply their learning practically and develop their physical skills.
Sports lecturer, Enrique Cardenas, highlighted the benefits of the different years working together: “It’s such a good opportunity for the students to not only practise their skills but also to share their learning and experience with their peers. This also really promotes team building which is so important in sport.”
After a tense game, the second years were crowned victorious. However, it won’t be too long until there is chance for the tables to turn, as the next in-house competition will be towards the end of the year.
Congratulations to the second-year team!
