In an exciting Intermediate Grand Final, St Ignatius, had control in the last over, with Christian College requiring a four off the final ball. Bowling to Year 10 student Jordan Rossi, the St Ignatius bowler left it short of a length and Jordan duly dispatched it to the boundary for four!
Playing 3 short over matches within the one day, the Intermediate boys needed to remain focused and take their chances when they came. The whole team was able to do this and celebrated with a victory.
The Senior team played a 36 over match against St Ignatius College. After posting a total of 143, thanks to a solid knock from Kyle Bienefelt, Sam Jefferies and Hayden Murrell found it difficult to keep the St Ignatius batsmen under control, who eventually passed the total with 3 overs remaining. Hayden Murrell capped a very good day bowling a strong opening spell with little luck and he was well supported by Ryan Taylor and Hunter Kremer-Slevin.
The Christian College Tennis team kept their undefeated GISSA Tennis record intact with a determined and hard fought victory against Kardinia International College. Special mention to Nicola McLennan, Geordie Daulaca, Emily Machar and Bianca & Zoe Duff who remained undefeated throughout the day.
