A CAMPAIGN that began in February has been capped with a state championship for Crusoe College’s years 9-10 boys’ cricket team.
Crusoe College won the School Sports Victoria Year 9-10 cricket tournament on Tuesday, defeating Marybyrnong Sports College in the final.
Batting first in the grand final, the Kangaroo Flat-based Crusoe recovered from 6-30 to post a competitive 7-132 off its 20 overs, with the fightback led by Sam Harper (40 n.o.) and Zack Turnbull (33).
Marybyrnong was bowled out for 114 after a last-wicket stand of 53.
A highlight for Crusoe’s attack was a double hat-trick to Josh Blencowe, who claimed four wickets in four balls.
The Jarrod Milsom-coached championship-winning team from Crusoe: Scott Woodman (c), Jake Klemm (vc), Wes Hopcott, Sam Harper, Liam Collins, Callum
Tibbett, Steven Kairn, Zack
Turnbull, Tom Kairn, Rhys Smith, Josh Blencowe and Riley Hocking.
