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.

Cricket: Round 6 wrap v Brisbane State High School

Dear Cricket Community,

Our much anticipated round 6 clash with Brisbane State High School returned 12 wins and 5 losses which included some mixed performances. Our Year 10 and Year 11 sides were undefeated against BSHS, while our younger grades were outplayed by State High’s extremely strong and undefeated 7A, 7B and 8A sides. Unfortunately after a clinical day out against NC 7 days prior, the 1st XI lost by 5 wickets in what was a disappointing performance.

Dear Cricket Community,

What a weekend! Saturday was a crazy day.

The TGS Cricket program performed brilliantly against Nudgee, and of our matches in the senior school, TGS were victorious in 16 out of 21. Congratulations to the TGS 1st XI who had a double bonus point victory over a star-studded and previously unbeaten Nudgee side. Continue reading

Round 4 Cricket wrap TGS v TSS

This proved a challenge as the majority of games played were won by the team playing at their home venue.
