Student Achievements - Edition 5 - 2019

Congratulations to the following students on their achievements...

There are some things in sport that rarely happen and a hat trick in cricket is one of those. The term 'hat trick' originated in cricket, where it refers to three wickets taken by a bowler in three consecutive balls. On Tuesday 19 March, in a game against Scotch College, Taaj Nicholls (Year 10 Forder) not only took a hat trick of three wickets in three balls, but took it further by taking four wickets in a row! Mr Orman, who has been playing and coaching cricket for over 40 years, has never seen this happen before! Taaj also ended up taking five wickets in a T20 game which is also very rare! Well done Taaj!
