Community Service Day


Congratulations to Whanganui City College cricketers who are the new Junior Cricket champions of Whanganui!

In an exciting game we beat Collegiate by 2 runs. Victory was the result of another great all round performance from a positive, enthusiastic and increasingly able bunch of young cricketers. The coach, assistant coach, Greg Smith, Mr Kaua, parents, fans and school, are very proud of the boys.

Yaseen and Layton did very powerfully with the bat and Lennox also held his end up well. Then Robbie and Josh bowled cleverly and conceded very few runs in their miserly overs. But Mitchell stole the show and snared 4 quick wickets near the end as Collegiate collapsed when seemingly coasting towards victory...and we held our catches, and, as all cricketers know, "catches win matches".

Well done again boys. Also a big thanks to our groundsman, Tommo, who keeps the field in immaculate condition.

The team is: Robbie Tyler (captain), Mitchell Blisset (vice captain), Farian Te Awa, Yaseen Adendorff, Josh Callaghan, Guy Waugh, Layton Zimmerman, Kaleb-Lee Taylor, Lennox Fold, Chase Fletcher and special thanks to Heremia Hawkins and Braydin Ratahi for filling in.
