Neale-Wade Academy’s Year 9 Girls are county champions after triumphing in the 2016 Cambridgeshire Cricket Finals.
The team overcame Linton Village College in the final, which was held at Clare College.
Students from Year 7 and 8 also took part in the competition, which saw Neale-Wade compete with top teams from other Cambridgeshire schools, including Cromwell Community College, St Faith’s School, the Perse School, North Cambridge Academy and the Stephen Perse Foundation.
The Year 7 team made the semi-final in their first competitive tournament, thanks to some excellent batting from Georgia Runacres and Leah Bass, and exceptional fielding from Caitlyn Baker.
Neale-Wade P.E teacher Sophie Bywater said: “The students were absolutely fantastic and were a true credit to the academy.
“Their sportsmanship and encouragement of others in the face of tough opposition was admirable.”
