The 1st XI claimed their first win of the season against St Aloysius’ College at Queens Park in the first two-day game of Term 4. Aloysius’ were sent into bat first, and were limited to a total of 104 due to an impressive performance with the ball by rookie and team favourite, Matthew Frost.
Frost proved that consistency is crucial in building pressure, as he went on to take 4/26 off 11 overs. Lucas Ryan provided the helping hand by taking an excellent diving catch in second slip. Waverley currently has a lead of 14 runs going into the second day, which was boosted by Hunter Eldrige’s 27, who was unfortunately run out. Congratulations to Mr Kroll and the team for their superb efforts on Saturday.
Waverley College Lunch
I would also like to acknowledge and thank all the parents/carers involved in putting on the famous Waverley College lunch for the 1st XI players. COVID-19 had restricted the College’s capacity to facilitate this lunch, and it was pleasing to see that as a cricket community, there is still a driving force of unity in organising this event.
Ultimately, these efforts as a community make the experience of playing 1st XI much more enjoyable for all the students. In particular, thank you to both the Hickey and Andrews families who have devoted their time in not only organising the lunch, but also embraced the many new parents/carers as members of our community.
Furthermore, some other notable performances across the grounds included:
- 2nd XI – Freddie Le Vay – 43 runs
- 2nd XI – Euan Veale-Wright – 45 runs
- 2nd XI – Charles Coughlan – 52 runs
- 10A – Charlie Short – 4/13 off 12 overs
- 9A – Aidan Herlihy – 3/14 off 5 overs
Lastly, Lachlan Chalmers from the 8As bagged a hat trick playing club cricket for Randwick on Sunday, and definitely deserves a special mention. Lachlan’s performance is a reflection of his attentive approach to training and his respect for his team, including his coaches. Well done, Lachlan.
