ISA school sport wraps up for the year

The final round of ISA sport for 2017 was played on the most beautiful day with the sun shining and players enjoying healthy competition.

The majority of teams for Chevalier College in basketball, softball and cricket were playing at home.

The softballers at Chev created quite a buzz with three diamonds in action.

Chev played Oxley in the Junior games and St Andrews in the seniors.

It was happy days for the senior teams who both had wins.

The firsts claimed a 17-1 victory while the Seconds got up 12-6.

There was some great batting from Charlotte Whewell and fielding from Merryn Corney in the Seconds match.

Both Junior teams had exciting moments and a couple of close matches against the Oxley girls.

The cricketers had mixed fortunes at home.

The 14s played East Bowral and came up against a good batting outfit that set a big target.

The Seconds performed well.

Rob Macleod and Jack Howard both had a good day with the bat were unlucky not to score half centuries.

Will Preddey with the ball was the star taking four wickets in a 30 run victory.

The Firsts faced Oakhill away and did not share the same success as the Seconds.

At the Moss Vale Basketball courts all the boys were playing against Central Coast and St Pius X.

For the A boys against CCGS the 13s commenced the afternoon with a big 52-27 win. 

Matthew Butcher and Daniel Bramley both played well.

The 14 boys played away and went down to Central Coast 52-27.

The 15s continued to improve and went much closer than round one. 

Tynan Cheers was good throughout the 57-34 loss.

The 17s won again with Zinzan Still and Connor Fitzpatrick playing their best games of the season in the 58-35 victory.

The Firsts tried hard but a couple of blowouts by the opposition had them always chasing the game.

To the boys credit they never game up. 

Ricky Body, Jeremy Butcher and Spencer Reed were Chev’s best in the 70-59 defeat.

The B Boys, up against St Pius, all had close matches.

Nathan Bowditch starred for the 13Bs who had a close 22-18 loss.

The 14B boys won by two (18-16) with Jasper Wright and Orlando Maule scoring when it counted.

Nic Stone was the best for the 15B team in another close match..

The home team lost 26-20.

The Seconds are making a habit of nail biting finishes.

They were three point winners on Saturday with Benoe Efira and Jordan Scott playing well to seal the 27-24 victory.

In the 17s match, the Chev boys went down to St Pius 38-13.

There were two wins for Chevalier in the girls basketball.

The Firsts claimed a 68-59 win on the road while the Inters defeated Blue Mountains 37-7, also away.
