Cricket Semi Final played at Alma Park

CBC 5/94  defeated  De La Salle 8/93


Luke Destito 45 not out and 2/14

James Talone 20 and 2/15

Jack Kelly 2/17


After restricting De La Salle to 8/93 and looking on track for a comfortable victory, we lost our way towards the end of the innings, which left an engrossing and thrilling finish, with 6 runs required off 6 balls. We eventually got to one run off the last ball and with our captain ‘cool hand Luke’ on strike he softly guided the ball to point which allowed Orion to make his ground at the striker’s end and the job was the done.


Unfortunately the grand final has been understandably abandoned due to COVID-19. So the premiership will be shared between CBC and Emmanuel College.


Special mentions to Luke Destito, his leadership was outstanding especially under pressure and finally to Ned Sayers, Paul Parnis, Leo Zabarauskas, Khoi Nguyen, Angus Stanyer, Tristan Paglianiti-Roberts and Tom Bozinovic Dodemaide who did not get much of a go with the bat and bowl this season, but their team spirit was invaluable in the team’s success.

Due to student health and safety issues our Senior T20 cricket team's grand final scheduled for Wednesday 18 March against Emmanuel College will not go ahead. Coach Eddie Cavolo explained the reasons to the team who are understanding but also understandably disappointed to not take out the flag for themselves. With an undefeated season it would have been a great accolade for the team.

On Thursday 27th February at the Melbourne Sports and Aquatic Centre CBC competed in the ACC division 2 Swimming Championships. We placed a very creditable 3rd to Salesion and St Joseph’s Ferntree Gully and defeated Mazenod, Emmanuel College and Simmonds College.

Ayden McCarroll: Under 15 yet swam the open 200m Fressstyle in a new under 15 record of 2:43.10

Stephan Holmes: Under 15 first in the A race 50m backstroke in 32.57 just missing the CBC record of 32.03 set in 1970.

Harry Charlesworth: despite being under 14 was the fastest at CBC for the butterfly with an incredible 30.59 during the medley relay and then a 31.81 in the individual race a little later in the night. Another swimmer who swam all 6 events on the night. Harry swam the freestyle in 29.15 in the individual race and 29.16 for his leg of the winning relay.
