The Form 5 and 6 cricket tournament at Abbotsholme was a great success for Yarlet, who came away as champions!
The boys enjoyed bossing the girls around for once and emphasised the importance of tactical batting. Sam and Jon were an unstoppable force, hitting the most 6's as a pair on the day. Jack and Harvey were a consistent duo, working exceptionally well together. Once they got the hang of it, the girls were able to place their hits well and defend the wicket when necessary.
It was commented that our fielding was the best and other teams were even coming to watch us in order to learn a thing or two! Sam and Jack were on the ball around the wickets, Harvey directed play in the field and Jon made some outstanding catches. The girls put their rounders fielding skills into practice, making some strong catches and throws when it really counted. Grace D was unstoppable with her spin bowling, and Kirstie's bowling also proved very hard to hit. It must be commented, however, that Jack and Sam were simply dazzling with their bowling, making all the other teams (and their teachers) stop and take note!
Well played Jack, Harvey, Sam, Jon, Jessica, Jemima, Grace D and Kirstie!
