Last Tuesday, Year 5 and 6 took part in a girls cricket tournament at Mays Bounty. Seven excited and energetic young ladies represented our school in their first tournament but nerved did not get the better of them. Here is a match report from Anna and Charlie detailing the results of the games:
“Our first match was up against St Mary’s school. It was a tough match considering this was the first time we had played against a different school and unfortunately we lost - but not by very much. The next match was against St Johns who were a very experienced team. We gave it our best shot but couldn’t quite beat them in the end. We then had biscuits (made by Ellie) which were delicious and gave us energy for the next game. Our final match was against St Bede’s and we beat them! This made us extremely proud of ourselves and we celebrated with a victory biscuit.
After the tournament came the awards ceremony where we found out who had won. We were nervous, excited and a little tired after a boiling hot afternoon of being in the sun. St Bede’s were 4th and then they announced 3rd place – it was us! We won a bronze medal each but it almost looked rose gold – which we were pleased about. Overall, I think we did a great job but want to say a big congratulations to St Johns who won the tournament. A big thank you to Mr Wood for all of his hard work and effort to help us practise and compete.”
Pictures to follow soon.
