Year 8 Cricket tournament
Last week a group of Year 8 students participated in a mixed cricket tournament near Ashford.Strood opened the tournament with a game against a strong Herne Bay High team and were put into bat. The Strood team managed a respectable score with Tegan W hitting some impressive shots. Unfortunately Herne bay were too strong and reached the run score set by Strood to take the win. Strood’s second game came against the Archbishops School. This game produced some excellent cricket from the Strood players. In her very first cricket experience Leihanna B, took her first wicket, first, demonstrated some excellent fielding taking a number of catches and also played a steady innings with the bat. This earned her a trophy for the champagne moment of the tournament. Very well deserved! Luke B also produced a strong batting performance and quickly reached the retirement run mark of 25 with a flourish of six’s. Strood ran out comfortable winners against the Archbishop school and finished the tournament in the runners up position.
