Toowoomba Grammar School

Cricket: Round 9 wrap v BGS

Dear Cricket Community,

The final round of Cricket against Brisbane Grammar School saw only 3 completed fixtures in Toowoomba, while a result was possible in most of the remaining matches played at BGS’ Northgate grounds. Overall, TGS won 5 out of 13 completed fixtures, which included another victory for our undefeated 8C side. Our 1st XI were also victorious in a match which resulted in a 4th place finish for the season, a great achievement. Across all GPS fixtures in 2019, TGS had a winning percentage of 59.85 which is up almost 10% on 2018.

Congratulations must go to our undefeated sides, 8C and 3rd XI, and their coaches, Mr Clayton Lachmund and Mr David Klan for their impressive seasons.

Amidst all of the cancellations and stoppages in play, there were a number of players who still managed to register half centuries or take 4 wickets in an innings.

Congratulations to the following boys:

Liam McLeish (1st XI) – 4 for 39 off 10 overs

Mitch Doolan (1st XI) – 63 off 102 balls

Hamish Cameron (2nd XI) – 65 off 91 balls (4 half centuries in 8 games!)

Will Purcell (2nd XI) – 69 not out off 98 balls

Callum Murray (2nd XI) – 4 for 6 off 3.4 overs

Harry Weir (2nd XI) – 4 for 26 off 7.5 overs

Harry Meiklejohn (10A) – 56 off 66 balls

Harry Beeton (10D) – 69 not out off 50 balls

Jem Ryan (9A) – 52 off 50 balls

Jimmy White (8B) – 4 for 6 off 4 overs

Congratulations, men.

This year TGS had two boys (Jem Ryan – 332 & Mitch Doolan – 301) score in excess of 300 runs. We had 9 boys score over 200 runs for the season (in 2018 only 4 boys reached this milestone). To view the final My Cricket Leaderboards, please click here for Batting.

On Sunday, March 31, the Cricket Presentation Day took place in the Glen McCracken Sports Centre. Thank you to all who attended and congratulations to all award winners.

I would like to thank everybody who has contributed to the success of the TGS Cricket program in 2019. I would especially like to thank the Year 12 members of our program who have played their last ever Cricket matches for TGS.

I look forward to seeing all returning Cricketers back in the blue and gold in 2020.

Yours in Cricket,

Ben Schuhmacher
