Year 7/8 T20 Blast Cricket Report
The year 7/8 cricketers competed in the T20 Blast cricket competition run by Cricket Victoria. This was held in Ballarat on Thursday 18th November. The conditions were very cold with rain on the cards, but the weather was good to them and held off the rain. We thank Mr Edwards and Mrs Woods for taking them. Along with the senior student helpers on the day; Bodie Maffescioni, Levi Chaffey, Ben Stubbings, Chloe Langley and Tarni Williams.
Year 7 Boys
In the first game the year 7 boys played St Joseph’s. Unfortunately we lost. The second game we were defeated by Ballarat High School. The last game we played was against St. Joseph’s second team and we were defeated again. Even though we lost all our games it was in good spirit and everyone enjoyed themselves.
Year 7 Girls
Amelia, Marni, Laura, Eve, Alisha, Kayla, Emma and Lekeisha all participated in the year 7 girls cricket team. Starting off with little knowledge of the logistics of the game, the girls improved a lot throughout the day having won their final game against Beaufort. They all had a lot of energy and had a great time. Laura the captain said ‘The day was full of excitement and encouragement even though we lost.’
It was a pleasure being their coach. Written by Bodie Maffescioni.
Year 8 Boys
The year 8 boys all went into the first game with a positive intent and a good vibe. Unfortunately we lost after a good start to the game against St Joseph’s.
The next game they bowled first and were on fire with the ball, racking up the wickets. But an even better bowling performance from Ballarat High School got them the win. All up it was a great effort from the boys
Year 8 Girls
On Thursday, Chloe and I both scored and coached the year 8 girls at the T20 cricket tournament. We had a very strong side consisting of Tia, Jess, Isla, Abby, Maisie, Rena, Gemma and Hayley. All the girls played exceptionally well winning 2 out of 3 games and just missing out on finals. Our Victorian rep Tia did not fail to impress averaging 3 wickets and 4 12’s every game. Well done to all the other girls on a successful day.
