St Helen's delighted with double win at cricket national championships

19 Sep 2023
School News

The past year has been a tremendous one for cricket at St Helen’s. In May 2023 the girls won the national finals of the ECB Schools Indoor Cricket competition in the U13 and U15 categories at Lord’s after progressing through the county and regional rounds over the preceding few months. 

The double-win follows the School’s ranking as the top girls school for sport in Oxfordshire, and 8th in the country, on the recent School Sport Magazine’s top 200 list. Earlier this year, St Helen and St Katharine was also listed in the top 20 girls schools for cricket in the Cricketer’s 2023 Schools Guide. 

The School’s Head of Cricket, Sam Herbert, commented: “There are many similarities between the two squads, in their performances, team spirit and togetherness, but as individuals they are two hugely different squads, both brilliant in their own right. The squads have worked so hard all year, attended training religiously and done everything with a smile on their face. The two days will stand long in the memories of the coaches, teachers, parents and players – what a fantastic opportunity for those involved. ‘Double ECB National Indoor Cricket Champions’ has a great ring to it, and we look forward to trying to defend both titles next year.”
