Girls' cricket team become National Champions at Lord's

The U13 girls’ cricket team (then Regional Champions) travelled to Lord's in a bid to win the Lady Taverners National Indoor Cricket competition. In their first game against Warden Park School from Sussex they won comfortably with 82 runs from 8 overs. A break followed with the girls being given a tour of Lord's and meeting Mike Gatting, who enjoyed chatting away to the team and being reminded by Mr Beal (our Director of Cricket) that he had bowled him out for Somerset! After lunch, the team faced Packwood Haugh from Shropshire. Packwood had played two, won two and had scored over 100 runs in both of their games, so the girls knew they had to up their game. Another good batting performance saw Millfield Prep reach 100 off their 8 overs and sent confidence soaring ahead of their final two games. A game against St Ivo’s from Huntingdonshire followed, with a target of 70 being set for the girls. A strong batting performance from the girls, with a couple of 6s from Georgia and a reverse sweep off the last ball from Harri, saw the girls comfortably to 94 runs. A win from the last game against Macmillan Academy, Yorkshire, meant the girls would be National Champions. Again, they bowled first and the innings was over in less than 3 overs, with India-Rose, Harri and Ellen taking the wickets. A target of 20 was set and India and Harri made light work of the chase. Out of 900 schools, Millfield Prep's girls were crowned National Champions!
