College Cricketers shine for the Darling Downs

Friday, 27 Nov 2020

Australia’s summer game is alive and well in our College. Cricketers from our junior and senior years have been chosen and have excelled in representative cricket, in the Downs.

Josh Cranston was selected in the QSS 12 years Darling Downs boys team. He top scored in game 1 and showed great skill and sportsmanship throughout the carnival. Josh’s efforts were noticed by many during all games and he was a fine advertisement of the personal attributes we value at our College and cricket being played the way it should be!

Lucy Williams and Ava Winter have both been selected in the QSS 12 years Darling Downs girls team. Ava is clearly delighted with her selection and is keen to learn about the game and carnival life. Lucy has enjoyed an excellent season and has been rewarded for her efforts in being named captain.

In other cricket news, Inner Downs selections were well deserved by senior cricketers Riley Smithard and Connor Cranston, both players being selected earlier in the season.

These representative selections are a wonderful reflection of the efforts and application of our young cricketers and clearly demonstrate the joy that can be experienced by anyone who is willing to participate in the great game of cricket!
