College Sporting Skills Tested at St Phillips Christian College

A number of cricket and netball students from St Philip’s Christian College tested their sporting skills in games against Wyong Christian Community School on Friday, November 21.

St  Philip’s  Christian College  head  of  senior school  Mr  Cameron Johnston said: “It was an extremely  hot  day  and the netball was able to be played indoors, but the cricketers had to endure the heat.” “All the games were played in a positive spirit and the students seemed to have great fun.” The cricketers were set a total of 191 runs to win the 20/20 match, and were unfortunately unsuccessful in the chase with only 72. “What made the match so  impressive  was  the number of students that played for the fi rst time, or even represented the school for the first time, wanting to do it more often,” said Mr Johnston. The netballers were also defeated by Wyong, going down 49-3. “Despite the results, all the students thought the day was a great success,” said Mr Johnston.
