Cricket: Round 6 wrap v Brisbane State High School

Dear Cricket Community,

Cricket: Round 5 wrap v Nudgee College

Dear Cricket Community,

What a weekend! Saturday was a crazy day. The covers were on, the covers were off and contrary to the weather predictions, we had a full round of Cricket against our north Brisbane rivals, St Joseph’s College Nudgee. 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
