Auckland Cricket Champions 2019
We did it! Back to Back Champions! Our Girls Cricket team have been participating in the Active Shield Cup Cricket Competition over this past term. The team is made up of our Year 7 and Year 8 girls cricket players who have been tirelessly training week in, week out. Their dedication paid off when they took out the competition at Central Zones a few weeks ago and again in the ASC Championship final. After Belmont Intermediate set a formidable target, we were left to chase 147 runs to win off our 20 overs.
We did it in 15!
The whole team performed brilliantly across the park, especially in the field. Notable individual performances included Anika Todd and Christelle McGuire. Anika led the way with a 3 wicket bag, as well as finishing 71 not out with the bat, while Christelle battled through niggling injuries to collect 127 runs across the semifinal and final - without getting out.
We are really proud of not only this incredible result, but the way the team supported each other and all of their opponents. We can’t wait to see these girls represent Auckland at Nationals later in the year - bring it on!
