Our SJB boys have also booked themselves a place in the county finals for cricket in Keswick. They matched the achievements of our girls yesterday.
They had to play their absolute best today against some great schools.
A big mention to Leven because he only joined the team this morning. He played brilliantly in an all-round team effort. Leon must also be mentioned as he shone under pressure and kept the team spirits up all day. Actually…we will mention them all. Reece for his brilliant death bowling, Harry for his top order batting, Ellis for his much improved wicket keeping, Jack for his 3 wickets in an over, Colm for his great bowling improvement and Shane for a positive attitude all day.
Kwik cricket is not won by one person and they all had to field effectively late in the afternoon after an early loss. The difference between their morning performance and afternoon approach was massive.
Thanks to Jake for organising and well done to all other schools who took part.
Our SJB girls earned a place in the Cumbria Cricket Finals with a superb display of skill over 5 games.
They won all their games and faced some extremely good teams throughout the festival.
We would like to mention the members of the team who had shown nerves before the tournament and then rose to the occasion to help power us to victory.
We must also mention the phenomenal hitting power of other members of the team who smashed 6s in all directions. 34 runs were scored in 1 over. The most you can possibly get is 36!!!
The boys play tomorrow and they looked suitably impressed when the girls came back to school.
Our 10 rugby players were superb at the School Games Tag Rugby tournament on Friday. They played at the home of Barrow rugby and won 5 of their games (all of them 3-1) to reach the semi-final and then the final.
They were beaten by a superb side in the final 5-2 but an enormous congratulations to them. We could not be more proud of the example you are setting to our younger pupils at SJB.
So ends a very busy week of sport at SJB. Another busy one starts the moment we get back after half term with cricket on the agenda.
Many thanks to our parent helpers who make these trips possible. You know who you are!
Year 2 have created art work based on lighthouses. They used a range of different materials and textures.
Year 2 have been learning about The Wright Brothers and the first flight. We also made our own paper aeroplanes and tested them outside.
Our orienteers did themselves proud this evening in the baking sunshine.
Francesca bagged 2 trophies for the girls and all of them showed massive improvement since the first event.
Full results will be on the Lakeland Orienteering page soon.
Thanks to all parents who have driven to events and to Selwyn and his team for organising the series.
