Cricket – Year 5 (14th June) and 6 (7th June)
Westover Green were placed in two tough groups for these competitions and played against some very good club cricketers. Unfortunately Westover did not qualify for the next round, despite a couple of wins. The standout teams in each group won all of their matches, but Westover Green finished a respectable second in both competitions. Everyone who represented the school was excellently behaved and demonstrated good sportsmanship in every match.
Rounders - Year 6 (21st June)
Westover Green can count themselves very unfortunate in this tournament as they were drawn against one of the leading schools for rounders. Unfortunately they lost this match, but then showed great team spirit and character to come back and win their remaining 2 matches in the group. Unfortunately only one progressed from each group and Westover did not go through to the next round. However, we did play 2 further friendlies following the group matches and won both. The team can be very proud of themselves having lost 1, but won 4 matches in total.
The standout performer was Jessica Bates, who, despite only being in year 3 was fearless with her fielding, stopping anything that came her way with whichever part of her body that was necessary. The only aspect for Jess to improve on is knowing where to run around the bases, we will be taking a sat nav for her next year.
Quad Kids – Year 3&4 and 5&6 (22nd June)
A brilliant competition that the children thoroughly enjoyed. They each took part in 4 events; sprint, javelin, standing long jump and long distance.
Jayla Smith was amazing and despite being in year 5 and competing against year 6’s she excelled and came 3rd overall in the girl’s competition.
Equally Jake Saxton put in a brilliantly consistent performance, coming in 2nd overall in the boys competition.
Women’s World Cup (29th June & 12th July)
We managed to get 8 tickets for the children to each of the above dates; the first match was India v West India and the second South Africa v Sri Lanka.
The children were immaculately behaved throughout the trip and were a credit to school. The feedback from the children was brilliant and each commented how much they enjoyed the occasion, meeting a few professional cricketers in the process.
Jessica Bates was selected by one of the staff at Somerset Cricket Club for a free bat and ball because of how hard she worked at one of the competitions.
