Girls Cricket

I would like to congratulate our senior girls cricketers for achieving Zone Level competition. I am still totally amazed that a century by Grace Chapman in a T20 game was still not enough to get the girls ‘over the line'. Regardless, I am delighted with the team effort and for achieving such high standards this year.

Girls cricket, where do I start? From a year 8’s perspective it’s pretty awesome to see people your age, especially girls who play your favourite sport and have them alongside you (especially when some are your best friends). 

We had 10 girls there on the day who were confident and loved the game. We played first against Mt Eliza, winning the toss and choosing to bat with our opening pair Fenella and Cassidy that started us off strong then Alicia and Ally hit some good runs here and there. Then Ruby, one of our newest recruits, and I made a partnership of 80, ruby heavily contributing. Then next up we had Bella and Elidh. Then Cass and Lily finished us off strongly towards the end of our innings. We ended up making around 145 all up then next up we were bowling. 

 

We had a really good bowling innings and all up, got almost 15 wickets (when the bowler gets a wicket you get 5 runs yet the batsman can stay for their 4 overs) so we ended up with over 200 runs which proved to be far better than  Mt Eliza’s total. 

 

Thanks for all the girls that played in my team and I can’t wait to play in the next round with you again soon. And also, a quick good luck to the boy’s teams going forward.

Swimming Champions

Congratulations to the students who participated in the District Swimming Championships on the 4th March. For the First time in HISTORY, Dromana College has taken out the win. Very proud and what a huge effort from these students. Well done. 

Congratulations also to those who participated at Regional championships which were held on Monday the 29th March. 

 

On the 30th March we also had a group of 30 students compete at MSAC for the Regional Swimming championships. The students swam incredibly well and came home with lots of medals. Keeping in mind our region is the hardest region in the state! 

 

Overall as a school we came 3rd , nearly taking 2nd podium spot over Melbourne High school who were only 20 points ahead of us and first place being Frankston High School. 

 

Another event that displays amazing sportspeople from Dromana College. Congratulations to Luke Baxter, Tahni Cronin, Chelsea Hutchins, Kobei Holmes, Nat Clarke and Joel Fraser who have qualified for the State Swimming Championships to be held in April. 

 

We are very proud of all our swimmers.
