Weekend sport roundup – CAS Summer round 9Doug Conway
A match-winning basket with four seconds left on the clock and an unbeaten 147 by a Year 11 cricketer were among highlights of the second last round of the summer sports season.
The clutch basketball victory over Waverley College came courtesy of Aveer Shah (10Ar) off a perfect pass from Zack Rice (10Ho).
The basketball Seconds, meanwhile, wrapped up the CAS premiership with a thrilling two-point win, the Sixths made it nine wins straight to secure their title, and a further 12 teams are in contention for similar honours with one game to go against Knox.
Cricket’s run machine was Kyron Thapa (11We), who helped the Second XI to a mammoth 277 runs from 32 overs. He backed that up by taking 3-14 with the ball as Trinity bowled out Waverley for 101.
The Firsts, 10A and 8B teams also had solid wins.
Tennis enjoyed its best weekend of the season, with all Open, A and B teams recording victories.
Water Polo, led by the Firsts and Seconds, notched up seven wins, four losses and a draw.
The Year 9 and 10 Debating teams continued their undefeated reign this season, and Chess almost swept the board with 11 wins and one loss.
Representative tennis honours went to Finn Taylor (11La) and Captain of Tennis James Kim (12Ar), who were selected in the CAS team to play against ISA.
Sebastian Vanges (7Yo) was selected in the NSW CIS U18 Softball team to compete in the NSW All Schools Championships next week.
