The final game was against St Swithun’s School. Bede’s batted first and scored 103-5 and then bowled convincingly and fielded tightly to bowl St Swithun’s out for 70.
Bede’s won the tournament and are the U15 National Champions 2019!
The squad played superbly throughout the day; they bowled accurately, batted with positive intent, ran well, and fielded well. The girls’ fielding was excellent – they caught well, created numerous run outs owing to their speed, and showcased attacking play. A superb performance all round – well done all!
