The Year 8 girls where third and had the honour of being the top state school at the festival.
In the boys competitions the Year 7 and Year 8 teams were district champions, with the Year 8 side finishing runners up in the county competition.
Neale-Wade’s under-15s represented Cambridgeshire at the ECB Chance to Compete Super 8’s at Springfield Cricket club in Essex.
