High School Junior A Girls Win Cricket League Final
The High School Junior A Cricket team won their League Final on Friday. The match kicked off at around 1:30 pm in Columba's College, against Wesley College. They batted first and after a long 20 overs, finished on 130 runs. They swapped over, unsure whether they would win or not. Wesley's first two batters were out within the first 6 or 7 overs. The next two batters made most of Wesley's runs, and The High School started to doubt themselves. Finally during the last over, Laura Tuite took two wickets, and the game ended, Wesley falling 15 runs short. Man of the match went to Laura Tuite for her phenomenal bowling. Medals were awarded to both teams, and speeches were made by the High School's captain, Shauna Power, and Wesley's captain. After a very exciting and tense game, they headed to MacDonald's to celebrate. Thank you to Mr Malin and Miss Beamish, our coaches, for all their effort, and to everyone else who helped us to win the league!
