Centuries were scored by James Kelly against St Bede’s and StAC, while Henry Blackley and Nate Ovendale scored centuries in the same innings against Shirley Boys’ High School. Wilby Cameron had a memorable spell when he took 6 wickets against Sydenham, and he took another 5 wicket bag against St Bede’s. A Colts XI played in the St Paul’s Collegiate Vettori Shield Festival. The team of Alex Stead (C), Henry Blackley, Will Bretherton, Paddy Cochran, Bruno Davies, Thomas Douglas, Jackson Garry, Felix Huston, James Kelly, Frankie Meates, Benji Nation, Nate Ovendale, Lewis Whiteside were very competitive winning fixtures against Hutt International Boys‘ School, King’s College, but lost a close semi-final against Westlake Boys’ High school, before finishing 3rd after a tie in the fixture against Otago Boys’ High School. Jackson Garry was the leading wicket taker in the Festival.

of players meant we were without one of our key batsmen and one of our first change bowlers. Despite being up against it, the team played admirably against some quality opposition, and managed to push the top two teams in some very close games. Special mention needs to be made of our main strike bowler Lachie Short, who took multiple four wicket bags and was one of the best swing bowlers in the grade. Overall, a positive season for the 10A boys despite the lack of on field victories.

The boys took time to settle as a unit and this was reflected in their overall win–loss ratio for the season. In saying that, the team is made up of some very good cricketers with huge potential. Highlights of the season were wins over St Bede’s College (twice), Cashmere High School, and two tightly fought matches against College 9A White. In Term 1, the 9A White team had the win, but the 9A Black took the honours in Term 4. 9A Black was a consistent bowling and fielding side, where every member of the team contributed to some excellent performances. Felix Huston and Finn McCormack- Young both did a good job behind the stumps throughout the season. Of the bowlers, Austin Smith and Jackson Garry took wickets on a regular basis and bowled with real accuracy. The team was full of excellent batsmen, who on their day dominated

COLTS XI CRICKET Managers: Warren Lidstone Coaches: Warren Lidstone

Team: Alex Stead (C), Henry Blackley, Wilby Cameron, Bruno Davies, Thomas Douglas, Jonty Inglis, Leo Jelly, James Kelly, Jonathan Murphy, Nate Ovendale, Lewis Whiteside The Colts XI emerged as a group of boys with a good degree of talent. Much of the season was based around developing a supportive and positive culture, while also understanding how cricket really operated. There was significant development and by the conclusion of the season there was real clarity in what was required to succeed. Term 1 saw the team playing one- day fixtures. The best performance was against Sydenham where the team was able to bat for 50 overs for the first time and through this a compelling score was established. This lifted the team and an outstanding bowling display led to success. Overall, the team finished 5th in the competition. Two-day fixtures were played in Term 4, this allowed more knowledge on tactics and the understanding how to control games. It also assisted in the development of perseverance and grit. Good team performances saw the team finish 2nd after an excellent performance against St Andrew’s College (gaining a significant outright win) and Christchurch Boys’ High School (another outright victory), while a top batting performance against St Bede’s saw the team go into the final hour on top in pursuit of 300 to win outright (however, we were defeated).

YEAR 10A CRICKET Manager: Dr Neil de Joux Coach: Will Jones-Allen

Team: Alexander De Luca, Duncan Fletcher, Henry Hitchings, George Kain, Jake Leck, Finn Melhuish, George Pearse, Will Pearson, Lachie Short, Nick Wilson Similar to many other teams during Term 1, the 10A cricket team struggled to get into a good rhythm early on in the year due to inclement weather, byes and, in one case, a team withdrawing from the competition the day before we were due to play. This meant the boys were starved for cricket initially. Despite this, the team was able to play some entertaining games, opting to play positive attacking cricket at all times. This meant we were on both the winning and the losing side of some very close games. Come Term 4 and things began positively, with a good first up win. Unfortunately, injuries to a number
