The Lancaster teams took on Burton Borough School last week and both teams won competitive friendly matches.
The weather affected many of the fixtures last week. On Saturday, the Under 13 boys only managed nine overs in their game. Good fielding under very tricky conditions was good to see from the boys. The Under 12s battled on however trying to defend their total of 80, but Ellesmere College defeated them in the 14th over.
The Under 15s had an equally frustrating day in the rain on the First team square. Wrekin scored 152 with Adam Lloyd scoring 50 and Tom Butler 40 not out. Unfortunately in reply, Queen Mary's Grammar School chasing at 80-1 off 14 overs, had to abandon their efforts as the rain intensified. The Lancaster Under 13s team did secure a good win on Thursday in the county cup. A county representative laden Burton Borough School side scored a competitive 91-5 on a good batting track. A quick fire 20 from Toby Davies and an exciting 27 from Luke Kelsey meant we reached our target in style with six overs to spare.
Last Friday we were represented at the Shropshie and Worcestershire Schools' Golf Championships. Eight boys took part, between First to Fourth Form, across Under 14 and Under 16 age groups. In very difficult conditions, a number of boys competed to their handicap, including past champion, Will Bruckshaw. The highlight of the day was Oliver Richards winning the County Under 16 NET Tournament.
The Annual Bayley Mile went ahead last Wednesday, despite torrential rain during the morning. Wrekin College teams, and individuals, ran really well with the Under 13 boys’ outright winners and Reuben Crombie broke the course record. Georgie Benbow also ran well to win the Women's Open Race, and cross country coach, Ryan Heath, took the men's race. Reuben also set a new Lancaster school record for the 800m last week with a time of 2 minutes 19.8 seconds.
