We had a lovely afternoon in Hunstanton on Wednesday which started with a play on the beach following a good journey. Both the U9 Boys and Girls played in cricket and rounders matches against Glebe.
The girls played as a mixed ability Year 3 & 4 team and it was super to see them working together and supporting each other. St Hugh's won the toss and captain, Olivia, made a wise decision to field first. The match turned out to be a close encounter, with St Hugh's going into the second innings with a 5-3.5 lead. Although we were a little quiet initially the team began to communicate well to prevent Glebe scoring and there were so on good decisions made. It was also very encouraging to see many of the girls hitting the ball and scoring both half rounders (Olivia x5,Peyia x4, Amelia x2, Ailsa x1, Peyton x1, Elizabeth x1) and full rounders (Peyia, Lucy).
We also managed to catch and stump the opposition out. There was some great fielding and it was super to see our Year 3 girls stepping up to play in key positions such as backstop, bowler and 2nd base.
Final score 9.5 - 9 win for St Hugh's! Well done to all players and thank you to Mrs Collins for making the long journey to support the team. A special well done to Zoie and Olivia in their final match for school.
