Report from Mr Rushton
Last Friday (16th June), 9 of our girls from years 5 and 6 made the journey to Whitburn Cricket Club to take part in a Quick Cricket tournament; this was the first time we have taken part in this all girls event for many years. It was also the first time many of these girls have played the sport properly, having only getting a little taste for it in PE lessons.
Out of the 6 teams, we came 4th after two excellent victories in our final two games after lunch. Against St Bede’s (C team) we scored 226-5 and managed to limit the opposition to 215-1. We defeated St Bede’s (B team) much more convincingly, restricting the opposition to 204-8 and scoring 236-4 ourselves. I was very impressed with some of the batting and running between the wickets from Sophie, Grace, Keavy and Lucy. I was also delighted by some of the bowling, particularly from Emily, Gracie, Emily and Armour. Brooke also took a sensational catch!
Well done to all the girls who took part. It was a lovely way to spend a sunny day, enjoyed by all!
