Parent v Son Game

Parent v Son Game

As Term 4 draws to a close, I want to extend my gratitude to all within the Cricket community for their support in an enjoyable return to a normalised season of CAS Cricket.

The Parent v Son game was another fantastic display of community spirit within our College, and was a delightful afternoon for all involved. Thank you to the new president of the Supporters’ Group, Craig McDonald, for all his work organising this event. 

After two disrupted seasons of COVID-19, and the constant threat of La Niña, we have successfully facilitated regular two-day Cricket, which has improved the boys’ development. Participation in the morning Batting Club has also been a clear example of the boys’ eagerness to improve their skill set and match performance.

Asher Dowd

Congratulations, Asher Dowd

Thomas Rudolph has scored back-to-back centuries, with his first against Cranbrook and the second against Trinity.

Congratulations, Thomas Rudolph

I would also like to recognise the grit of James Fragias, who took to the centre in a troubling time for the seconds, being down 5/48. Fragias opened up with his new Gunn & Moore – stickers gleaming – to put the 2nd XI in a much more securable position.

James Fragias

Congratulations, James Fragias

Zander Bass also carried his team to a first innings victory in regulation playing time, blasting 10 boundaries to knock a 54 against Barker. Thank you to coach Leo Shanahan, and all the players of the 10A, for the mature manner in which they conducted themselves. 

William Hickey‘s century against Barker was another display of Waverley guts and determination, whilst also a unique knock that was well overdue for the Hickey family. William took to the crease after a quick fall of wickets on Day 1, and finished the afternoon on 64. On Day 2, Will chose his shots wisely to gain his century comfortably, putting 11 balls to the fence.

Congratulations, Will Hickey

Congratulations, Will Hickey

William is a fourth-generation Waverlian. William’s great-grandfather and grandfather – both named John Hickey – played in the 1st XI of 1912 and 1939, respectively. William’s father, Denis Hickey, was a member of the 1979 championship 1st XI. William’s older brother also played in the 2019/20 1st XI. Despite this long generational connection with the College, William is the first member to score a century, and make his mark on the Pavilion honour board. I am sure the Hickey family are exceptionally proud of William’s efforts. William’s performance on Saturday is a testament to his firm resolve and will to represent his College proudly. Congratulations, William.

Matthew Frost also earned his spot on the honour board, taking 5/47 in the same 1st XI match against Barker. Matthew’s five-wicket haul was only inevitable due to all his hard work at training, and the energy he brings on Saturdays. Matthew has become very comfortable with the Queens Park wicket, taking 4/26 in Round 2 against St Aloysius.’ I am sure Matthew’s next goal is to carry his bat with a maiden 1st XI century. 

Internal Cricket Camps for Junior and Senior Players

Lastly, a reminder that the College is offering two internal cricket camps for Waverley College students. These camps cater to both our junior and senior players, with days designated to these differing age groups.
