contest State Finals
RGS 1st XI and Primary School
T20 cricket teams had the
opportunity to play in State Finals
to wrap up the 2017 school year.
The RGS 1st XI cricket
team has again finished a
strong season after finishing
runners-up in the Secondary
Schools T20 State Final.
Played under lights at the
Rockhampton Cricket Grounds
in November, RGS (North
Queensland region representative)
came up against The Southpor t
School (representing South
Queensland) in the decider.
RGS bowled well to restrict TSS
to 142 off their 20 overs but in
the run chase RGS couldn’t get
into the game losing wickets
steadily which restricted their
opportunities to attack the total.
The First XI finished at 8 for 61
at the end of their 20 overs.
RGS qualified for the final after
claiming the North Queensland
Bowen State High, Ignatius
Park and Atherton State High.
This followed earlier success
in the Central Queensland
region qualifying rounds.
The RGS Primary School T20
cricket team, consisting of players
from Year 6 to Year 4, travelled
to Brisbane’s and were scheduled
to play at Allan Border Field to
contest their State Final, after
earlier qualifying having won
hotly contested Rockhampton
and Central Queensland rounds.
Wet weather in Brisbane
forced last minute changes to
their dreams of playing on the
Allan Border Field with regional
teams then having to test
their skills at indoor cricket.
After four games the young RGS
team finished second overall after
some tightly contested games,
in unfamiliar playing conditions.
It was a great effort and a
test of character to quickly
adapt to a new format in an
unfamiliar playing arena.
The RGS cricketers resume their
onfield battles in Term 1 when the
2017/2018 Rockhampton Cricket
Association competitions resume.
Flynn Thomasson (Year 9) is the only
player north of the Sunshine Coast to join this
season’s Queensland 15 years schoolboys
cricket team to play the national titles at the
Sunshine Coast in February. Flynn was selected
following the State Championships, also played
on the Sunshine Coast, in December where
Capricornia placed fourth overall. Leading
into the nationals Flynn will join his Queensland
team mates for a series of training camps and
practice matches in Brisbane and will also play
against a Papua New Guinea Under-19 team.
RGS teams produced a clean sweep in
the Rockhampton Water Polo Association
Secondary School Term 4 competition.
RGS won the Senior Girls, Senior
Boys and Junior Mixed divisions.
The Junior Mixed final was an all-RGS
showdown with RGS Gold (captained
by Kade Goudie pictured below)
scoring an 8-2 win over RGS Black.
In the earlier Senior division grand finals, the
Senior Girls final was another all-RGS contest with
RGS White producing a 13-2 win over RGS Gold.
In the Senior Boys final the RGS
Buffalos team produced a hard fought
6-4 win over Emmaus College.
Secondary Schools water polo returns to
the RGS Pool in Term 1 from 5 February.
Water polo will also signal the start of
Secondary School inter-house sport in
2018 when the teams hit the RGS pool
on Sunday, 4 February. Wheatcroft won
last year’s water polo challenge.
