U13 Cricket team come second in Southern Vipers TournamentPosted on: 24/05/2018
On Wednesday 23rd May the U13 Cricket team headed to Reading Blue Coat School to compete in the U13 Southern Vipers Tournament. It was very much cricket weather with the sun shining, and we were lucky enough to be playing at some beautiful grounds. Their first game was against Waingels College, which the girls unfortunately lost by 3 runs. There was some excellent batting with Millie Jones, Charlotte Taylor and Charlotte Barber scoring some excellent runs.
The second game was against The Piggott School B team, and the girls were much more confident in the field and when batting. The DGS side displayed an excellent team dynamic, especially as this was the first time that they had played together in a competition.
We then went in to the semi-final match against Kennet School, and the girls played their best game so far. There were multiple fours hit over the boundary; it was clear that the girls had listened to the coaching that Georgia Haworth in Year 12 had given them, and we bowled their team out. Winning the match against Kennet saw us go in to the final against the Piggott A team. Unfortunately, we lost this game but coming second is a massive achievement and a really successful day for the U13 team. It was a pleasure to witness the girls playing, and they were a real credit to the school.
The team were as follows: Charlotte Barber (C), Millie Jones, Charlottle Taylor, Katie Woods, Rebecca Agg, Laura Millar, Ana Hills, Erin Brady, Emma Park, Steffi Harrison.
