U15 Girl’s Indoor County Cricket Tournament at Truro College
Our U14 Girl’s Cricket players were crowned U15 County Indoor champions on Friday, following a fantastic tournament performance.
The squad won each of their games against Penrice, Launceston, Richard Lander and Mounts Bay – scoring a remarkable 103 runs in just six overs in one match.
As an extra reward for their efforts, the girls have qualified for next month’s Regionals at Bristol UWE Centre for Sport.
Reflecting on the team’s efforts, Mr Bidgood said: “The girls have been working really hard on backing up when batting and this was evident in their performance.
“It was a fantastic tournament display and they thoroughly deserved the title.”
Players of the Tournament
Issy C – For her superb bowling, taking five wickets in one game.
Daisy – For playing two years above her age group and looking like an experienced player, despite only starting playing cricket six weeks ago.
