Well done to everyone who played. For some girls it was their first match.
Whilst the match was going on 11 other year 7 players were being coached on the Bowdon Tennis Club grass courts. They had a great time playing on a surface that they not played on before. Thanks to Dave for coaching them.
The year 8 squad played in. A friendly match against Loreto after school. There were 6 couples split into Team 1 and Team 2.
Each couple had 3 15 minute matches to play : how many games can you win in 15 minutes. They were short matches but it was very hot and didn’t think the girls could cope with much more at the end of the day.
Team 1 lost by 23 games to 25.
Team 2 won by 34 games to 12.
Well done girls. Team 1 – you will get them next time!!!!!
We entered the National Schools Schools’ Sports Magazine T20 cricket competition again this year. We were drawn in a group of 3 with Ormaskirk Grammar School and Fallibroome High School.
Off we went to Ormskirk to play. A strong cricketing School with nothing to fear. We batted first and did not score enough runs : we were 81 all out after our 20 overs.
Ormskirk then went into bat and were 124 for 3 after their 20 overs.
We had lost against a better team but it was great experience for the girls.
We did not play Fallibroome High School as our planned match had to be cancelled because of rain and the match had to be played before half term. During the last week we had exams so we were not able to rearrange the match.
