Sports Round-up f/c 20 March

U13 Girls' Mixed Success in Lady Taverners Cricket Competition

Girls from Years 7 & 8 represented King’s in the group stages of the Lady Taverners National U13 Cricket Competition this week with mixed success. For many of our girls this was their first ever experience of competitive cricket and unfortunately we had the unenviable task of playing last season’s overall bronze medallists, St Ivo School. Needless to say the game was tough and we eventually lost 125-53 despite a captain’s performance from Poppy Lyons. In their second game, the girls managed to shake off their nerves and gave a much better performance, easily outclassing St Peter’s School to win 123-55, with a great bowling performance from Grace Samuel. This meant we eventually finished as runners up.

U15 Boys Crowned Peterborough Schools’ Indoor Cricket Champions

The U15 Boys’ cricket team qualified for the final of the Peterborough Schools’ Indoor Competition this week and faced a strong Jack Hunt School team. A strong bowling performance, including 3 wickets from Daniel Laxton, meant that we were able to restrict our opponents to 80 runs and picked up some valuable bowling points. The pick of our batsman was Shurndeep Singh who made an unbeaten 16. In the end the game came down to the final over with King's eventually holding on to win a well fought game, 96-92. Well done to all those involved and we look forward to a successful outdoor season.

Year 9 Boys' Dodgeball

The Year 9 boys entered two teams into the Peterborough Schools Dodgeball Tournament this week. Our A team, captained by Jack Tyers, finished 3rd overall, but our B team, captained by Jacob Sauer, managed one better finishing as runners up.

Girls' Cricket

The U15 Girls Indoor Cricket team played a county tournament this week. Much like the U13 team last week, they were draw against St Ivo School, who were national finalists last year, and suffered a heavy defeat in their opening game. Their final group match was a much closer game against an experienced Stanground team, but despite some great batting from Maisie Buckle, they narrowly lost this game too. We look forward to some more fixtures after Easter and watching the girls developing their cricket skills.
