On Thursday 20th June, our under 9 cricket team travelled to Stourbridge CC to compete in the district under 9 Kwik Cricket tournament.
After three impressive and dominant performances with both bat and ball, the team won their group and found themselves in the semi-finals. After a tense and competitive match between a good Colley Lane team, our boys won through winning by 11 runs. That semi-final win meant that we faced Maidensbridge in the final.
In the final, Milking Bank were put into bat and we posted an impressive 47 runs for 1 from our 24 balls faced. The team scored four 4s and three 6s in a confident batting innings. In reply Maidensbridge scored 24 for 4 against an impressive Milking Bank bowling attack.
Well done to the team, who were amazing in both behaviour and attitude all day, on winning the district tournament. Fingers crossed they will have many more successes.
Thank you to Robyn for your effort and help on the day too. Mr Farmer
On Thursday 6th June, our under 11 girls' cricket team competed at Halesowen CC in the district Kwik Cricket tournament.
After winning all three of their pool matches they faced the Glynne in a tense final. After some excellent bowling and batting, we unfortunately finished second in the match and tournament and second in the district.
A fabulous day was had by all and the effort and improvement of every player has been brilliant to witness. Thank you to every girl who has trained this year and good luck with your cricket in the future. Thank you to Robyn for all your help and effort at the tournament. Mr Farmer
Milking Bank's Swim Team
On Wednesday 8th May our boys' swim squad travelled to Walsall Swim Baths to compete in the Black Country Games. After winning their area gala, the team of four boys: Liam, Ashley, Logan and Raif swam their hearts out.
The team competed in freestyle, backstroke, breaststroke and butterfly as well as the mixed relay against other schools from Dudley, Sandwell, Wolverhampton and Walsall. After some excellent individual performances and team success in the relay, the team came 5th out of twelve other schools. We were the best placed Dudley boys' team and narrowly missed out on a place on the podium.
Congratulations to the team and Mrs Gooda and Miss Hingley for their support at this event.
Dudley Schools' Cross-Country Championship results 2019
Himley Hall and Country Park, Saturday 9th March
After weeks of trials and lots of effort from both the children and staff, the day of the annual district Cross-Country race had arrived.
In overcast and muddy conditions the children did themselves and the school credit. In the first race of the day, the girls came 6th with three of our runners finishing in the top forty (5, 31, 32) and one of our runners (MR) finishing 5th! A fabulous result from our girls.
Then in the second and final race of the day, the boys came third as a team and we had 3 runners come in the top thirty (11, 18 and 22)! A brilliant result from both teams and well done to everyone who ran (with all of our athletes coming in the top one hundred).
Good luck to our three runners, who now will represent the district at the area finals on Saturday 30th March. We know you'll do well.
Our Sports Representatives work with Mr Farmer and Robyn to discuss sports in our school.
