The Woodkirk Primary PE Project Dodgeball tournament came a week after the MSSA Dodgeball competition and it was fantastic to see a number of different students attending each event. Four schools brought five teams, Birchfield A and Birchfield B, Westerton, Blackgates and East Ardsley, with over 50 students in attendance. The competition ran as a round robin with two rounds and each round delivered different winners meaning places for the final were hotly contested. After 10 games of dodgeball, East Ardsley, Blackgates and Birchfield B were equal on points and took a joint bronze place, leaving Westerton and Birchfield A to go head-to-head for overall winners. Both teams played tactically and with precision, however Westerton had the edge and were crowned Woodkirk Primary PE Project Dodgeball winners. A massive well done to all students, the sportsmanship on show was a credit to all schools involved.
