WATCH: Dodgeball players in action in tournament

Players dipped, ducked, dived and dodged when they took to the court for a fast-paced dodgeball tournament.

Highfields hosted the tournament for Year 9/10 Girls’ teams from schools across Wolverhampton.

Highfields' Year 10 team put on a strong performance to finish in 2nd place, beaten only by Our Lady and St Chad.

The tournament was held following the huge success of Tuesday lunchtime dodgeball lessons, which have proven to be a huge hit for Highfields students.

Mr C.Brickwood, Head of PE at Highfields, said: “It was a fantastic competition with some excellent individual performances.

“Both our Year 9 and Year 10 teams deserve a massive round of applause.

“I would also like to give a special mention to the Sixth Form Sports Ambassadors who ran and umpired the whole tournament.”
