Another busy sporting week for our teams.

6 competitive fixtures with 4 games being played at Kent College.

Monday 24th April

U12 Boys Basketball vs Uptown School

Score Kent 6 - Uptown 38

This was the teams first competitive Basketball match in the league and one Im sure the boys will want to forget. Uptown are a very organised Basketball school and played very well. The Uptown team passed with precious and managed to catch most of the rebounds, which gives them a great opportunity to shoot again. The result showed our U12 Boys team that we have much more to do and need to be patient.

On the same night the U12 Girls played JESS (B) at Home

Score Kent 0 - JESS (B) 18

This was a massive improvement for the girls from their previous weeks performance and you can really see the development and confidence in the girls grow with each game. JESS have been playing basketball together to 3 or 4 years now, so the result wasn't a surprise. With one more game to go, I have confidence in the girls and their ability to continue to develop into all-round ball players.

Tuesday 25th April

U13 Boys Cricket (Tapeball) vs Raffles World Academy

Score Kent 81 for 4 - Uptown 151 for 5

The performance in this game showed that the training the boys have been getting at lunchtimes from Mr Starling, is really paying off. The boys were much more confident in bat and sharper in the field. Unfortunately we still need to work on our line and length, when bowling as we gave away over 50 runs in extras through wides and no balls.

Wednesday 26th April

U14 Girls Basketball vs GEMS First Point @ Home

Score Kent 20 - GFP 16

Kent started the game with a 3 point deficit due to fielding 9 players instead of 10 however, this didn't deter the girls and if anything made them work harder. Quickly, through Trinity's amazing shooting, Kent were in front. Our passing and decision making was so much better than previous weeks and the girls were showing increased signs of confidence throughout the game. With more exposure to the game and training our girls will definitely continue to improve and have more performances like this.

U15 Boys Cricket (Tapeball) vs Raffles World Academy

Score Kent 103 for 0 - RWA 93 all out

Another excellent display of great bowling from Usama getting 3 wickets and scoring 34 from the bat. Shariq had to retire when he scored a very quick 40 runs. The two opening batsmen had an impressive partnership of 92, hitting 5 fours and 9 sixes in the 5.1 overs they faced. Hopefully, our bonus points are enough to get us through to the quarter finals.

Another action week. I have been thoroughly impressed with everyones attitude towards sport and with this, Kent College will continue to grow as a challenging competitive sporting school.
