The Girls Cricket team returned home from Lady Bay in Nottingham as County runners-up. The event featured 17 schools from across Nottinghamshire divided into four groups. Barnby were in the 'group of death' alongside eventual winners Oaktree School. During the morning the girls played some excellent cricket, qualifying for the knock-out stages in the afternoon behind Oaktree. As the afternoon progressed the girls found their rhythm and got better and better beating St Edmund Campion and Croft School in the QF and SF.
The final was always going to be tough but the girls rose to the occasion playing their best cricket of the day and only narrowly losing to a side that contains 8 county squad members.
The spirit of the team and the way they encouraged each other was outstanding. They should be very proud and remember this day for a long time.
