Trinity News : April 2008
22 TRINITY NEWS Saturday 13th October was a day that will long live in the memories of those who were at No.1 Oval to see the opening CAS fixture against Cranbrook. The 1st XI had reached a critical stage of their innings. Coming together at 4-86, Jack Hill (10Ar) and Captain Viroshan Poologasundrum (12St) proceeded to compile the highest partnership by any pair of Trinity batsmen in the School’s history. The stand was worth a staggering 268 runs, overtaking the previous best of 223 posted in 1994. As Coach Andrew Yarad wrote to me, Jack played shots to all parts of the field. His cover drives, pull shots and cut shots were a pleasure to witness. His determination to occupy the crease and grind the bowlers into the ground reaped huge reward. With each punishing blow he took the momentum away from Cranbrook. Viroshan was not to be outdone. He played a superb captain’s knock when the team really needed it. He demonstrated elegance in his stroke play, and the intensity with which he played drove a wedge in the opposition’s spirit. He also demonstrated a vast array of shots and continues to add strokes to his repertoire. In cricket, statistics are not everything. However, they serve as a good way of commemorating two remarkable performances. Tim Lester | MIC Cricket The Raw Challenge programme is an innovative and confidence building exercise regime that seeks to provide an alternative athletic pursuit for those boys who find they simply are unable to participate in any of the myriad of sporting options available at Trinity. From time to time, the M.I.C. of Raw Challenge, Ian Moore, often invites to address the group successful sportsman, who embody the spirit of what we’re trying to achieve. In the past, such notables as Paul Graham (World Kick Boxing Champion) and Paul Osborne (Canberra N.R.L. Legend and Father of the Year) have graciously given of their time to come and mix with the boys and pass on their pearls of wisdom. On Saturday the 8th. March the RAW Gym was rocked to its very foundations with the much-anticipated arrival of Emanuel Augustus, noted contributor to the “sweet science” and renowned master of pugilistic affairs. The very man who stood toe-to-toe with Floyd Mayweather over ten high class but brutal rounds and gave him the fight of his life. Mayweather is considered by many experts to be greatest boxer of all time, having held six World championships over five different weight divisions. Emanuel, despite the early hour, was so generous with his time that not one boy was disregarded or turned away. He boxed and sparred and exercised and joked and played with everyone who was lucky enough to be there. The RAW Challenge Team thanks Paul “Grechy” Grech, who made this event possible, and we thank him not only for this, but for the great work he does with the boys on a regular basis. Along with David Moore, he provides the expert tuition and insight that gives our sport “street credibility.” RAW Challenge continues to grow, with over sixty students now participating on a regular basis. Throw in a handful of parents and assorted extras, and you might be able to account for the roof being lifted off the Gym each and every Saturday morning. As we attest to in RAW “If you think you can – you can. But if you think you can’t – you’re right.” Bill Foran | (RAW Team) above l to r: Mr Andrew Yarad, Jack Hill (10Ar) and Virosh Poologasundram (12St) top: An appreciative RAW Challenge Team middle: Elliot Grills takes on the Man! above: Bill Foran unloads on Emanuel!
