Girls win Auckland Cricket U12's Club Quikhit Grade

For the first time, possibly in our Pt England School history, we have entered cricket teams to play for a club in the Saturday Auckland cricket competition.

This year we registered 2 teams under the Ellerslie cricket club: Year 5-6 boys and U12 girls.

Our boys played 5 games in a post Christmas competition on Pt England Reserve. It has been a huge learning curve for them and they did very well against seasoned players.  Nonetheless, it has been a most enjoyable experience for the boys and their families and we are proud of them.

The U12's girls team had a magnificent season - undefeated, winning all 13 of their games over the summer at Melville Park in Epsom.  Here are their remarkable statistics:
Opposition: 138 wickets for 530 runs. Our girls: 59 wickets for 1685 runs.
An outstanding achievement from a team a girls who improved each week in their efforts and their skills.

The girls collected their winning badges at the Auckland Cricket Association's Junior prizegiving at Eden Park on Wednesday 30th March.
