Year 10-12 Cricket Carnival

On Monday, the 21st of February, a group of year 10 to 12 students were selected to represent NASHS at a senior interschool cricket carnival. The weather was sunny and perfect for cricket, and the boys arrived at school ready for a big day of cricket.


In the first game, captain Mo Jaggi lost the toss against a very strong ASHS team, and we were sent in to bat first on a tricky pitch. Mo made 12 runs but unfortunately didn't have much support as NASHS were bowled out for only 45 runs. In reply, Dillan Gadean and Trent Herbert bowled very well with the new ball, and Harvey Taylor was brilliant, finishing with five wickets. 

In game two, the boys responded with a comprehensive win over Denmark. Mo won the toss, bowled first, and the boys were able to bowl Denmark out for only 62. Trent was the best of the bowlers, taking two wickets, while Owen Smith, Shane Lock, James Watters, Mo and Dillan all got one wicket. In reply, Mo and Ryan Lazar made light work of the chase, going past the score in only the 6th over, with Mo retiring on 50 runs. 

With one win and one loss, the NASHS boys faced Grammar in the day's final game. Grammar batted first and was restricted to only 80 by the NASHS bowlers. Billy Young was the best bowler, finishing with two wickets from his two overs. Shane and Owen were the other wicket-takers. Unfortunately, the boys lost early wickets in the run chase and never recovered, eventually bowled out for 65. 

All boys had a great day and displayed excellent sportsmanship at all times.
