Year 7 Trials
Thank you to Mr Elliot, Mr Kroll, Mr O’Donnell, Mr Wilmot and our new Old Boy coaches Ed Sullivan (Class of 2021) and Max Farmeary (Class of 2021), for their involvement in the Year 7 Cricket trials last Thursday. All coaches assisted in planning and delivering a successful training session, and all students actively participated. The coaches were pleased to see such a large turnout and we welcome all new Year 7 players to the Waverley College cricket community.
Another noteworthy observation was the large number of students who have returned to cricket from the Junior School. This highlights the extensive work that Mr Wachtel and coaches at the junior campus have put into ensuring the students enjoy what is a great game.
1st and 2nd XI v St Patrick’s Strathfield for the Brother Berg-Murphy Shield
The spirit of Edmund Rice was on display over the weekend, as Waverley fought to retain the Brother Berg-Murphy shield. The 1st and 2nd XI both lost to strong St Pat’s sides, but again, a display of Waverley College courage and determination to compete was evident across both games.
Eddie Regan again exhibited his ability to lead with action taking 3/55 off ten overs. Carter Steyn also deserves congratulations for his debut in the 1st XI and taking 2/25 off five overs. Max Brooks led the way with the bat, and top scored by hitting nine 4s and one 6 to reach a score of 60 before being bowled out.
In the 2nds, Freddie Le Vay proved his worth by taking 2/20 and knocking up a total of 38. Jack George, who was pulled into the 2nds as a last minute inclusion from the 10As, reached a total of 44.
1st XI – St Pat’s Strathfield 8/260 defeated Waverley 179
2nd XI – St Pat’s Strathfield 4/216 defeated Waverley 161
Lastly, I would like to welcome back all Waverley Cricket parents and students to the start of the Term 1 side of the season. It has been a disrupted schedule, and I understand that limitations on attendance regarding COVID-19 have prevented many of you from being as involved in the Waverley Cricket community as you normally would.
I thank you for your patience, resilience and support, in ensuring that despite these circumstances we, as a community, constantly aim to achieve what is best for the students. Looking forward to seeing many of you soon down at Queens Park!
