Sport Report: 22/04/2016

It has been a busy week with our first round of Cricket matches at home against Penair on Tuesday and the first Athletics meet of the season taking place at Par on Wednesday. Tuesday saw a record day with 96 students out at Athletics training as well as 35 students involved in three cricket matches. The sun has shone and it has been a successful week, particularly in the Athletics, please find all information on all the weeks events below.

The Cricket season is up and running with three matches taking place this week against Penair, two here at Penrice and one at Penair. The Y7s were involved in an enthralling game at home, having bowled superbly well in their first Cricket match as a team they restricted Penair to exactly 100 runs for the loss of 3 wickets, Callum Mercer, Koben Triggs and Alec Nile each shared a wicket each. In reply, Alec Nile and Oscar Acraman opening the batting got Penrice off to a flying start getting to 30 for none off 4 overs, Acraman would later be out for an excellent 40 as Penrice. After 3 wickets fell and the run rate grew, some late order big hitting from Callum Mercer, including 4 fours in a row, put Penrice in a position where they needed 6 off the last ball to win and unfortunately despite making a good contact with the ball, could only score a single to come up 5 short in an excellent match. The Y8s found things difficult against a strong Penair team at Penair. After being made to bowl first Penair racked up a good score of 110 for the loss of only three wickets, Joe Maunder and Harry Taylor sharing a wicket each. In reply Penrice found the Penair bowling to strong, finishing on a disappointing 36 all out, extas was top score with Tom Payne and Talan Grigg scoring five runs each. The final match was the Y9s who also unfortunately lost, after opting to bat the boys set a disappointing target of 73, Zac Rodgers top scoring with 10. In reply the boys bowled excellently taking six wickets, Jack Hoskin taking 3 wickets as Penair got over the line in the 18th over. Disciplined batting and shot selection will very much be the focus of training next week.

The Athletics is also up and running with the first meet at Par taking place on Wednesday, as previously stated 96 students both male and female across all year groups were out and training on Tuesday, and this week it was the turn of the boys and girls from Y8 and Y10 to compete. The students who represented Penrice did themselves and the school proud coming first overall with 247 points beating Wadebridge who came second with 212 points and Newquay Tretherras with 197. The Y8 boys came first accumulating 59 points, lead performers being Tom Hocking who ran the 800m in 2 minutes 42seconds and Morgan Squire who jumped 3.80m in the long jump as the pair both finished second in their respective events. The Y8 girls also came first with 63 points overall, Shola Harrison ran the 200m in 31.10 seconds and Evie Bishop the 800m in 2minutes 47seconds both coming in first place. The Y10 boys were beaten by Wadebridge into second place with a total of 60 points. Jack Parr and Sol Smith both won in their events, the discus and shot put throwing 19.02m and 8.54m respectively.
