Howzat! DIO 1st XI Cricket Smashes it!

Thursday the 18th of June, 2020

The Dio 1st XI Cricket team are back on top after a spectacular season.

Coming off relegation the previous year, the Dio team overwhelmed the Cricket 1A competition, remaining undefeated across the whole season. Every game had its highlights - Sophie Hughes with a 5 wicket bag against Mt Roskill Grammar. Sophie also scored 50 off 46 balls in another game against Westlake Girls. Arunika Mather-Saini scored 64 not out off 45 balls against Epsom Girls Grammar. Every game was either won by 50 runs, or by six overs.  Only a few games were impacted by a shortened season, but it was clear that Dio was streets ahead of the 1A competition.  We are looking forward to being competitive back in the Premier competition next year.

Grateful thanks to esteemed coach Roy Goodyear, and to our own Bryan Haggitt for his enthusiastic stewardship of the 1st XI, as team manager and scorer. Well done to Gabby de Latour as team and Code Captain, and for her management of the team.

Congratulations to the following members of the 1st XI Cricket team on this wonderful success: Amelia Brown, Gabby de Latour, Tessa Dyzell, Eve Finlayson, Katie Hardie, Sophia Hardie, Sophie Hughes, Madeleine Jorgenson, Sienna Kirk, Arunika Mather-Saini, Lucy Nevill, Harriet Smith, Ana Wijffels.
