Sporting Highlights - up to 23 June 2017
It was a proud evening on Wednesday as OL Mason Crane made his senior international debut for the England T20 cricket team. He starred with the ball to restrict the South African batsmen to scoring only 24 from his four overs. Mason played a big part in the 9 wicket win!

The House Tug of War trophy winner was Teme, with a devastating performance.
The U14A and U15A teams enjoyed fine wins last Saturday against KES Witley.
A fantastic performance with the bat saw the U14A team score 217 from 20 overs. Top scorer with the bat was MVP Charlie G (79). He was ably supported by Ted E (53) and Isaac A (43 from only 17 balls). With the ball, Oscar S took 2 for 3 and Oscar M took 3 for 5 to bowl out the visitors for 66.
The U15A team cruised to its fourth victory this season. Stunning bowing from Jeffrey K-D and Charlie B, along with tight fielding from all the players, meant that KES could only reach 85. Charlie H stepped up with the bat to score 27 – enough to secure a 6 wicket win.
On Tuesday, the 1st XI recorded a straightforward victory against The Elite International Academy by 4 wickets. Will E stood out again with the ball, returning figures of 4-24, with Captain Ollie J taking 3-24. With the bat, Larry M top scored with 40.
However, the girls stole the show by making it three wins from four games by beating Worthing High without the loss of one wicket! Worthing were 53 all out from 13 overs, and our girls reached the target after only 4.
Target Rifle Shooting
Following Jacob P's and Russell W’s British Schools selection, they have both now stepped up to the next level. On Saturday (300, 500 and 600 yards) and again on Sunday (900 and 1000 yards) they both shot for the adult Sussex 1st team at Bisley and have earned their Sussex shoulder flashes and blazer badges – a superb achievement! Overall, Sussex placed 6th out of 20 counties with our lads making up a quarter of the team.
On Tuesday, the junior boys and girls battled it out for the House titles. With all six grass and six hard courts in action, it was a fantastic afternoon of tennis. With 7 wins out of a possible 9 the winners of the Girls' Junior House tennis (for a second year running) was Field's House.
After a slightly rocky start against Second's House in the first round, the winners of the Junior Boys' House Tennis was School House with the boys winning 10 matches out of a possible 12.
Team of the Week
For the boys, it goes down to a vote between the U14A and U15B cricket teams; for the girls, TOTW goes to the cricket team!
