“Top of the bench” final

The “Top of the bench” team finished runners-up to Madras College in a very tense and closely fought competition last night.  The team only just missed out on re-gaining the trophy by one point.

Well done to the team for an exceptional performance last night and throughout the competition.

Our congratulations go to Madras College and to all of the other teams – Webster’s High School and High School of Dundee – who made it such a terrific final.
