  • The Year 7 and 8 rounders club played their first match against Wilmington Academy today. This was the first extra curricular competition for many of our students and all of them very excited and nervous; but all involved really enjoyed the experience and the opportunity to make new friendships! DSTC batted first and got off to a great lead scoring 5 rounders in the first inning. During the second inning, Wilmington were growing in confidence and put on some additional pressure with a couple of very big hitters! Our DSTC team sustained their lead and the game finished with a 8-6 win to us.
