On Wednesday 1st November the Year 7/8 cricket teams went to Ballarat to play in the T20 Milo Cricket Carnival. This was a modified version of cricket ran by Cricket Victoria aimed at increased participation and everyone having fun while playing cricket.
Year 7 Girls
On Wednesday 1st November we went to cricket and had lots of fun. We went to Victoria Park in Ballarat. The Year seven girls won all three of their games and made it to the grand final. Our team included Tia Davidge, Jemma Cole, Jess Rhone, Abby Franklin, Ashley Pertzel, Rena Addollahi, Hayley Colquhoun and Maisie Taylor.
Our First game against Beaufort Secondary College was really good and both teams did well. Our second game against Damascus College was a little harder but luckily we still won. Our last game before the final was tough and a close match but we won against Ballarat Secondary.
In the Grandfinal we played Ballarat Secondary again, the same team as the last round and unfortunately we lost.
Overall it was a great day and everyone had fun. Thanks to Tarni Williams who came along to score.
