Year 9 Cricket Qualify for Nationals

November 20, 2017 at 3:32 PM

Last week our Year 9 Boys’ Cricket team, captained by Harry Lowe, went through a week of competition, unbeaten, to clinch the Auckland title.

During the course of the week, the team beat Mt Albert Grammar, King’s, Westlake Boys’ and Rosmini to earn themselves a place in the final against Auckland Grammar on Friday – a match they also won! A well-deserved win after a determined week of play from the team.

It was very much a team effort as our young cricketers had to focus for over 2500 balls during the five matches! There were some outstanding performances by individuals, however, the key to their success was the ability to play as a team of 13 players, working together as they faced a new opposition each day.  

The win not only earned them the Auckland title but also the opportunity to play in the National tournament next March in Palmerston North. Well done boys!

The team is:

Harry Lowe
William Gregory
Henry Drillien
Varun Garg
Regan Nash
Carlos Stone
Daniel Presland
Oscar Reed
Harry Bashford
Tom King
Zach Hughes
Ollie Dawson
Charles Wilkes
