A Week in Sport
11th June, 2018
In Cricket, the 1XI have progressed to the final of the T20 Scottish Schools’ Cup, after beating Loretto by 24 runs. Douglas scored 68 off 55 balls, Thomas 43 and Jamie 28 not out, off just 12 balls. Robert picked up 3-20 in his four-over spell. The 1XI also won against Strathallan. Co-Captain of Cricket, Tom, scored his maiden century for the 1XI (111 not out) in a 124 run victory. It was a patient and disciplined knock after two early wickets. Well done, Tom!
There were also wins against Strathallan for the U15As, U15Bs, U14As, U14Bs, Pringle 1XI, U12As and U11As. The U11As and U11Bs lost against Cargilfield. The U9s won against St Mary’s and lost against Ardvreck.
In Athletics, there were some excellent performances at the SSAA Scottish Schools Championships including a number of personal bests. This was one of the strongest performances on the track in recent years, with a number of boys reaching the finals. This is a very strong competition with club athletes on show. Also, congratulations to Robbie, who won two bronze medals in the U14 Shot and Discuss.
In Tennis, the U18s were crowned Tennis Scotland Scottish Schools Champions for the eighth time in ten years. They came through a challenging semi-final against Beaconhurst and final against The High School of Glasgow. They did this without conceding a tie. Well done to Jacob, Matthew, Johannus, Charlie and Alex, who will now progress to the National Finals later in the summer.
