U11A win through to IAPS 3rd Round!

Witham Hall        31 ½
Wolverhampton Prep    6 ½

The team produced a strong performance with the bat and in the field in the second round of the IAPS competition. They batted first and stuck to their task well staying in for over half an hour. Bella and Lilia both found their angles well and scored 6 apiece; however, Poppy, Rose A and Millie also put in very strong performances.

In the field they played calmly and steadily showing consistency as it was really pretty tough getting Wolverhampton out – they stayed in for 52 balls! However, in all this time the girls restricted them to just 2 ½ rounders! In Wolverhampton’s second innings Witham were really on fire, getting them out more quickly albeit more expensively! There were fine catches from Bella, Sophie and Rose B. Well done – Yarn Prep in the next round.

After a blustery journey and not much practice in a week full of exams the U11A team worked really hard to try and put together four decent matches at the rugby Tournament. The matches were of a quick fire variety with little time to score or to get opposition batsmen out. However, there were some notable performances: against Spratton Hall there was some fantastic triangle work between Matilda, Bella and Sophie and some really good quick thinking to stump other batsmen out that were running around the square; against Milton Keynes there was some good catches from Lilia, Bella and Matilda and a stunning running catch in the deep from Poppy and everyone enjoyed a one of a number of fantastic throws from Gigi that went straight to 4th base and resulted in a stumping out! There was some dynamic movement in to posts displaying some really active fielding from Rose B, Rose A and Poppy. Charlotte, at 1st base, showed off her fantastically quick hands just when it was needed against Bilton Grange.

Today our challenge was with the bat with difficulties penetrating the deep field. Having said that Rose A kept her calm and produced consistent scores in every games; Lilia and Poppy were the only two to notch up a few whole rounders; Millie and Rose B provided the audience with some excitement making their mark with the bat in each game. Matilda H showed that she can get excellent angle with her hits.
