Scotch Wins SACA Strikers Girls Cricket League Trophy

Scotch Wins SACA Strikers Girls Cricket League Trophy

Congratulations to the Scotch College Girls Cricket Team, who defeated Pulteney Grammar School (2/87 def 8/37) to win the SACA Strikers Girls Cricket League for 2018.

The Grand Final win was the 5th consecutive win for the team, making Scotch the lone undefeated team in the competition. The achievement is made even more impressive when considering the composition of the team; no Scotch player is currently above Year 8 while many other teams were fielded from Years 9-11. To have so much success is a testament to the talent of the girls and the hard work they’ve put in.

I’d like to extend a special thank you to Matilda Scholz and Neeve Reimann, who were fantastic and selfless leaders all season. Matilda, aside from from batting, bowling, occasionally wicket-keeping and captaining, was instrumental in ensuring there was a full side every week and ensuring that the new girls felt welcome. Neeve, already an excellent player, often sacrificed her own opportunities in favour of the development of others. Supporting our two team leaders were a terrific core group of regular players who all performed to the best of their ability all season with the bat and the ball. There were a number of outstanding individual performances throughout the season and a number of cricketers with bright futures. I look forward to seeing the continued improvement from all of the girls.

I’d like to extend a thank you to Darren Beanland and Muditha Maduwantha for throwing their support behind the program. It has been a pleasure to coach this group. They have the talent and personality to achieve great things and I’m excited about what we can achieve in girls cricket at Scotch.
