MPSSA Lightning Cup

Summer Sports Recap

Girl’s Cricket 

Last Thursday the Year 6 girls in the cricket team went to Arnold’s Creek to play in the Lightning Premiership.  Every school had at least 3 matches. However our school, Wedge Park and St. Catherine’s had a bye which meant we had an automatic win.

The first school we played was Eynesbury.  The end score was Eynesbury with a total of 65 runs and 3 wickets and St. Anthony’s with 115 runs and 5 wickets.  This meant that we won. 

The second match we played was against Coburn. The total score was Coburn with 75 runs and 3 wickets and St. Anthony’s with 45 runs and 2 wickets.  Unfortunately we lost.  However, all the girls had fun and showed great sportspersonship.

We would like to thank our teachers for supporting us on our sports journey.


Last Thursday the Year 6 students went to play tennis at Wedge Park Primary School for the Lightning Premiership.  We played against 8 schools and were lucky enough to win enough games to play in the Grand Final.

All the players on the team played hard and showed good sportspersonship.  With a great effort we managed to come second losing by just 5 points to Wedge Park.

We would like to give a special thanks to Mrs Fahey and Mr Colley for being there for us and supporting us.
