Trinity News : August 2012
On Saturday 24th March the 1st X1 cricketers, made up of boys from both the Junior and Preparatory Schools, various parents and two coaches Mr Asplin (Prep School) and Mr Robinson (Junior School), set off for a three day tour of Toowoomba. Our first game was against a very strong Toowoomba Grammar team; at stake was the Cricket Cup. Three boys who had not played in the 1st X1 before were very proudly presented with their 1st X1 caps before the game; Matthew Tuffy, Kevin Huang and Neilesh Fernandes. After losing the toss Trinity were sent in and amassed a modest 82 runs after a very rocky start of 3/3 from 30 overs. Some solid batting performances were from Neilesh Fernandes 15, Nicholas Webb 12 and Alex Kolesnikoff 11. However, with a strong batting line up, Toowoomba Grammar went on to make 4/196 with Neilesh Fernandes 2/8 and Nick Pavic 1/20 sharing the wickets. Lachlan Ilias hit the stumps to secure a run out, a highlight from a diffident fielding effort Our second match was for the Loxton Cup, a game that traditionally has been played every year since 1955 against Toowoomba Preparatory School. This was the feature match of the tour and the boys were very eager to do well. After winning the toss Trinity elected to bowl. After some excellent early bowling from Hugh Casimir, Alex Kolesnikoff, Lachlan Ilias and Cameron McDonald the home side were in trouble at 6/45. However, they went on to make a respectable total of 126 runs from their allotted overs. Alex 3/11, Lachlan 2/9, Cameron 2/23 and Nicholas Webb 1/10 all bowled good line and length and were duly rewarded with fine figures. n reply, Trinity made another shaky start and were 5/39, eventually being bowled out for 111 as we made a valiant effort to make the 127 required for victory. Lachlan Ilias 35 not out and Alex Kolesnikoff 18 were our stand out batsmen. The boys played both games in fine spirit and were a credit to themselves and the school. Matthew Asplin and Chris Robinson | MICs Cricket Preparatory and Junior Schools NORTH COAST RUGBY AND FOOTBALL TOUR During the final week of last term the North Coast Tour took place, with a select group of combined Preparatory and Junior School Year 6 boys. The touring party included a 1st XV Rugby and a 1st XI Football sides and were escorted by Mr Barkell, Mr Mormanis, Mr Rivers and Mr Ricketts. The first two games were against St Colomba School in Port Macquarie. The Football side ground out a hard fought 2 nil with Evan Giannaros scoring twice, while the Rugby boys had a more difficult outing going down convincingly to a side which contained some year 7 boys to make up the numbers. The tour then moved north to Bishop Druitt College in Coffs Harbour. The Rugby team had a more difficult match going down 22-15. The Football team went down 3-4 with Evan Gianarros, Christian Nicolaou and Andre Moufarrege all scoring goals. The last stop was Hunter Valley Grammar School at East Maitland. The Football team drew 0-0, while the Rugby team won 21-0. This meant Trinity won the Sporting Challenge Trophy, which was created last year between the schools. It was a great way to finish the tour and really lifted the spirits of the boys. The boys had a great week, which involved a range of fun activities. Thank you to the host schools and congratulations to the boys who displayed impeccable manners whilst with their host families.
