Well done to the Girls 1st XI Cricket team who won their first match of the season this Tuesday against Uppingham.
Teacher of Chemistry and coach, Mr Dominic Evans said, “Oakham batted first and scored 89 for 8 with Form 5 student Emma top scoring with 19. Oakham then bowled out Uppingham for 63 runs with Issy (Form 5) taking 4 wickets and Sacha (Form 6) 3 wickets. The game was played with a fantastic spirit by both teams.”
The Girls 1st XI cricket team made Oakham School history last year playing competitive matches for the first time, which was a huge success. The girls now partake in training sessions using Oakham’s outstanding facilities and play a series of fixtures against other schools throughout the summer.
