There was much anticipation and excitement leading up to the Inter-House Swimming gala this year! The Year 5 and 6s started off the competition on 15th May with some superb swimming. The races were very close, the support for everyone was outstanding and every swimmer contributed to the score. Tonkin’s House won the Lovett Cup (medley relay trophy) and Hardy’s won the Freestyle relay cup. Special congratulations must go to individual cup winners: Rohan B for winning the Cox trophy (50m backstroke), Leon E for winning the Axtell cup (50m breaststroke), Jake G for winning the Monaghan Cup (50m freestyle) and Luca V for winning the Pell cup for 100m Individual Medley. The overall scores at the end of the morning were incredibly close: Tonkin’s and Trease’s were in the lead with 66 points, followed closely by Hardy’s with 64 points and Ball’s with 33 points. These scores will be added to the Year 3 and 4 gala next week. Well done to all the swimmers!
Under 11B pairs cricket v Hill House at Doncaster
NHIJS 374 off 20 overs
Hill House 195 off 15 overs
NHIJS won by 179 runs
Batting first, our openers Marcus and Luca were soon into their stride, putting on 87 runs between them. Marcus hit 10 x 4’s in his total of 50 whilst Luca hit 7x 4’s in his total of 37. The large number of wide deliveries made it increasingly difficult for the remainder of our batsmen to actually hit the ball but Jake and Ujesh added a useful 10 each and, combining with the total of 58 for wide balls, we finished on 374.
In the second innings, Zain and Callum bowled tightly as openers and this pattern continued with only 8 wides conceded from the entire team. Increasing in confidence, Zain, Jagpal and Gabe took 2 wickets each whilst Toyan, Luca and Marcus each took 1. Through a combination of excellent wicket-keeping from Matthew and the aforesaid accurate, neat bowling, Hill House were thus restricted to 195, having lost 7 wickets.
Wonderful teamwork and camaraderie were the essence of this sparkling victory; the progress of some of the less confident players was a joy to behold as they learnt quickly from others. This was particularly apparent in the field, where the positioning, the walking in and the backing up of throws from deep improved enormously as the match progressed. Hearing our players thank each other as they walked off the pitch was, indeed, the icing on the cake.
Our U10A team played their first match v Hill House last Friday. The u10s lost by 22 runs. They played with great enthusiasm and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. They are also a great group to take away.
Harry Elwick 11 runs, Raman 10, George 9, Cholan 8 & Nikhil with 4 runs were our highest scorers.
Bowling – Nikhil gave only 2 runs from his 2 overs, Kapil took a wicket (for 9 runs) nd we had one run out and one stumping – (Well done Max W)
Under 9 cricket v Barlborough Tuesday 16th May 2017
NHIJS 268 off 15 overs
Barlborough 232 off 15
NHIJS won by 36 runs
The morning’s precipitation may have affected the outfield at Valley Road but it could do nothing to dampen the spirits of this excited group of Year 4’s.
Through a combination of outstanding wicket-keeping from Euan and some tidy bowling from the entire team, Barlborough were restricted to running quick singles. Conceding only two fours and eight wides all afternoon, the Under 9’s sensibly gave themselves a platform on which to build their batting innings. Despite the prevailing blustery conditions, wickets were taken with deadly accuracy by Joshua, Sahib and Saketh.
Growing in confidence in his captaincy role, Adit organised the field well and supported his team as they developed their techniques of long barrier and backing up.
In a contrasting second innings, our opening pair of Nathan and Adit could well have become frustrated by the number of wide deliveries however they stuck to their task and adapted their style of play. Sasmeet and Sahib then proceeded to punish the bowlers with two fours in quick succession; Joshua and Saketh continued in the same vein, contributing fourteen runs between them and, not to be outdone, the pairing of Fletcher and George produced a flurry of powerfully hit boundaries.
Sensing that victory was within our grasp, it was left to James and Euan to steer the ship home; playing defensively in the penultimate over, they then opened up to develop their repertoire of shots in the final few deliveries.
With impending matches against Foremarke Hall and Ratcliffe College next week, it was important that the team adapted quickly to a game scenario and assimilated the coaching tips. Pleasingly, they all seized the opportunity with great enthusiasm and developed their ability to work collaboratively.
