I can’t think of a better way to introduce our Sport Report than with this video of SPORTS DAY

U11 Kwik cricket v Cartwright and Kelsey
On Friday the U11 Kwik Cricket team had the opportunity to play in a friendly match against Cartwright and Kelsey. St Faith’s batted first and lost a few wickets early in the innings. However, the team recovered to score 255 runs from their overs. It was then our turn to bowl and field. Cartwright sent their biggest hitting batters first and they got off to a flying start. The score was already 226 runs after just 3 overs. However, St Faith’s continued to bowl accurately and perhaps most importantly kept taking their catches. This reduced the score and Cartwright and Kelsey eventually finished their innings with a score of 235 runs. Well played all and excellent catching!

U11ABCD Girls Kwik Cricket v Kent College
The time had come for the final game of the year. It was also Miss Arman’s final fixture with the girls so they were all really motivated to do well. The 1st team were outstanding! St Faith’s batted first and the first 3 pairs scored steady runs to make the score 230 with 1 pair to go. However, Genevieve J and Poppy B then came to bat and were brilliant. They scored 39 runs in 4 overs and pushed the team score to 269 runs. Kent College then batted and despite scoring early runs, were pegged back by excellent bowling and fielding from the girls. They eventually scored 238 runs from their overs. The 2nd team also played really well and scored 229 runs from their overs. In reply Kent College only managed 214 runs which meant another win for the girls. The 3rd team had a really close match that kept swinging one way then the other. Kent College batted first and scored 249 runs and then St Faith’s came agonisingly close by scoring 246 runs. The final match was also a close contest but St Faith’s eventually lost by 12 runs. Players of the match went to Mali N, Georgina D, Sylvie B and Darcey P. Well played girls!
A final word has to be for Miss Arman who has put in so much effort with the girls and I know how much they have enjoyed learning and playing for her. “The children and everyone in the school will miss you”.
Next week the children have House Cricket to look forward to and hopefully plenty of swimming sessions.
