On Friday the Atherton SHS senior boys cricket team
competed in the regional final against St Augustine’s at Morrow Park,
Tolga. Both teams were vying for the
opportunity to represent the region in the state finals to be held in Mackay
early next term. Unfortunately Atherton were unable to get the victory but
fought valiantly against an impressive St Augustine’s team. Atherton were sent in the bat first and you
could tell there were a few nerves to begin with but quickly settled in to post
a good score which would be hard to chase down. The weather conditions really
hindered the boys as a little drizzle continued throughout the bowling innings.
Saints got the win with two overs to go.
Credit must go to the students participating after they were previously
undefeated in all lead up games.
