A big day at Ormiston last Thursday: the Suffolk Finals! Hosts Ormiston Sudbury were our first opponents: victory! 10½ to 6½ with some fantastic rounders being scored and some great work in the field. We then played Farlingaye and again dominated to win 6-3½ with Victoria Burrows bowling intelligently and Annie Yates, Libby Martin, Emma Trebilcock, and Flora Pitt striking the rounders Next was a tense game against Thurston: some great fielding by Sophie Graham in particular helped us come out on top by 8-4, but an unfortunate injury sidelined Annie for the rest of the competition. No time to rest: next it was Thomas Mills with the girls on a high and feeling confident. Nell Pilkington scored some good rounders as did Saffron Holliday and Sophie; Verity Hobday put in a great performance and Laura Golding ran well between the stumps when the pressure was on… victory again! One more game: Bungay… and no mistaking the intent as the girls put on a great performance in both field and at bat to win 9-5½.
This was a fantastic result from a great group of students who thoroughly deserved their win. They were a real credit to the school and thoroughly deserved to retain their title from last year! Very well done.
