St Marks cricket season is underway and we hosted the ‘Chance to Shine’ first round knockout cup. We were drawn against Broadlands with the winner going through to the next round. After winning the Toss we put Broadlands into bat and Genevieve opened the bowling with great success taking out their most dangerous player with the second ball of the game. Jeff then took 3 wickets in an over and
we bowled them out for 44. Our batsmen started brightly hitting some lovely shots around the park. Having lost a few early wickets we needed 8 off the last two overs and managed this with ease, Harrison and Luke guiding us over the finish line. We are now through to the next round away at Fairfield Middle school in Cheddar.
On the 10th May we attended the BANES county athletics championships at Bath University. The weather was perfect for athletics and the standard of athletes there was superb. Our students took part in lots of different events and did the school proud. Special mention to Ellie who qualified for the 200m final finishing 5th and Ben who came 5th in the Javelin.
