Cricket Tournament at Lords
On Monday 20th January a group of 8 boys and 8 girls across Years 8, 9 and 10 represented the school at a Cricket tournament at Lords Cricket ground against other Westminster schools. The students all represented themselves with a high level of maturity throughout the day especially when given the opportunity to develop their leadership skills with a workshop designed to do so when they weren’t playing. Now onto the Cricket, the girls did extremely well to come back from a couple of early losses to reach the final where they were unfortunate to lose to a well drilled team. The standout performer for the girls was Haleemah whose performance in the playoff to reach the final was the difference between the two teams with Haleemah at one point almost completing a hat-trick of wickets in her final over! The boys were unfortunate and lost their first two games by very close margins losing wickets at crucial times. They did show great character to then win their last game by a big margin and didn’t let the disappointment from earlier in the day get to them. The standout performer for the boys was Sanketha who displayed some great batting ability hitting some big 6’s and who bowled with good pace and accuracy!
