On 13th June, Dame Bradbury's U11 girls travelled to Cambridge to participate in the IAPS regional cricket tournament hosted by St Faith's. The girls played some fantastic cricket in the group stage beating St John's, Wellingborough Prep and Alleyn Court Prep with their only defeat being a narrow loss to St Faith's by 6 runs. This meant the team came 2nd in the group and progressed to the 3rd and 4th place play-off. In this match the girls played against St Aubyn's School. This was a very tense game and the match went down to the final over with Dame B's bowling brilliantly taking two late wickets to secure a tense 13 run win and claim the bronze medal position. It was a fantastic day of cricket with every player making valuable contributions in what was an incredible team effort.
