Today two teams were entered into a lower school cricket tournament held at the Lapstone playing fields. The tournament was a league format with each team playing every other team. The side with the most points at the end of the event would be crowned the overall winners. Fair Oak B began the competition with a narrow defeat to Berrywood but then went on to beat Upham by a comfortable twenty two runs. Their next fixture saw them face Botley who put in a solid display to beat Fair Oak. Fair Oak A began with a comfortable win against Berrywood and then followed that up with a comprehensive victory against Upham. They then lost their next fixture by just thirteen runs to Botley. The final round of fixtures saw our two teams play each other. Fair Oak A batted first and scored an impressive 273 for 1. In response, Fair Oak B batted sensibly but could not score heavily enough against some accurate Fair Oak A bowling. Their final total was 235 for 1. These results meant that Fair Oak A finished in second place overall while Fair Oak B finished in third position. Well done to both of our teams for a great performance!

The Fair Oak development athletics team travelled to Berrywood school to participate in a competition amongst local schools. The athletes had to perform a number of events including the javelin, the shot put, an 80m sprint, a 200m sprint, a long jump and a standing triple jump. Points were awarded to teams depending on where their athletes came in each of these events. The competition finished with a number of relays. After the last race had been run and the points were added up, Fair Oak finished in eighth place with one hundred and twenty nine points. Well done to all of our outstanding athletes.
The Year 5 County Cricket Finals took place today at West Hill Park School in Titchfield. Both our A and B teams were participating. The competing teams were split into groups with each team playing every other team in their pool. The winners of the pools would go through to the semi-finals along with the best runner up. Fair Oak B began with a comfortable eighteen run win over Bassett green but then lost by just four runs to Whiteley. In their final group game, our B team put in a great display against Abbotswood but lost another close match, this time by just eight runs. Ou A team began their campaign with a narrow six run defeat to Marchwood and then beat Park Gate by twenty nine runs. Unfortunately, these results meant that neither of our teams qualified for the semi final although our A team missed out on the best second place spot but just 0.67 runs after the runs scored averages had been calculated! Well done to all of our participating cricketers who should feel proud of the way they represented our school today.

After a positive start, Fair Oak lost momentum and wickets fell, leaving the final total at 205 for 9.

However, a big well done must go to all of our County Cup squad for reaching the latter stages of this extremely competitive tournament!
