Junior Club Championship

The Association announced that our Junior’s (mixed) won the Club Championship. This is the first time since 2008/09. After a long winning record in the early 2000’s a change in qualification criteria significantly limited large Clubs from winning.

Our Anecdotes have more on this so have a read.

This result doesn’t happen overnight but is the result of the collective actions of many people. The contribution of Julian Bish, Rob Hanich and Buzz have all contributed significantly. In our case we had 10 X Semi Finalists and 4 x Minor Premiers in the 5 Grades that have Finals with most of our Team clustered around the middle / top.

Well done to the many people who contributed over many years.

Junior Grand Finals

Congratulations to Minor Premiers who were awarded Premierships after all games were abandoned on Sunday (21st March):

  • U17s: Orange (Minor Premier & Premiers)
  • U15s: Purple (Minor Premier & Premiers)
  • U13s: Green (Minor Premier & Premiers)
  • U12s: Blue (Minor Premier & Premiers)

While everyone wants games to be decided on the field, each of these Teams were the best in their Grade over the season and this is recognition of outstanding performance.

The 4 Premierships also broke the previous record of 3 set back in 2007/08.

What makes this even more special is that our policy of ‘Participation over Results’ has seen most of our Junior Teams finish the season in  a cluster around the middle or higher so well done to every other Team who either made the Semi’s or missed out. We are proud of every Team.

Grand Final

WPHC Sthalaker 69 lost to Normanhurst-Warrawee 1/119

A wonderful way to finish the season with the GF match against 1st placed Normo. After being sent in to bat Normo powered to 1/119 in their 20 overs at Karuah Oval. Scores from our Girls aren’t yet loaded but we struggled to 69 all out in 19 overs against a good quality side. While we lost the game we had a great season.

Plate Final

WPHC Annetts 0/20 defeated Kissing Point 19

The Plate Final game finished with a big win for the girls to finish off the season in style. Bowling first, we rolled Point for just 20 in 19 overs with our best bowlers being: Shreeya Jai Krishna Prabhu 2/2; with a wicket each to Olivia Lownds 1/2; Amy Eade 1/5 and Trisha Yadav 1/1.

Batting was over in the blink of an eye – getting the ruins in just 4 overs. So we finished the season on  a high and just 1 point off the top 4.
