Cricket – T20 Blast
On Friday 9 November, Catherine McAuley College took teams of boys and girls from Years 7, 8 and 9 to the T20 Blast competition, a modified version of cricket. The day had a strong emphasis on participation and having fun and our teams emulated these values. We played matches against Bendigo South East, Marist, Eaglehawk and Castlemaine Secondary Colleges.
Our teams performed incredibly well, ensuring that everyone got to bat and bowl throughout the day. One of the highlights for the day was the friendly between our Year 7 and Year 8 girls’ teams. It was a match played in great spirits as the Year 7 girls managed to finish victorious. These two teams as well as our Year 7 and Year 8 boys’ teams managed to make it to the final in their respective divisions, which was a remarkable achievement. We would like to thank our Year 9 coaches who organised their teams, umpired, scored and provided the students with some cricket knowledge. All of the teams performed superbly in a day filled with fun.
