Pink Stumps DayYear 12 and Staff battle it out on the cricket pitch for the McGrath Foundation
On 21st February, Victory hosted a Pink Stumps Day for the McGrath Foundation in which Year 12 students battled it out on the cricket pitch against staff.
Year 12 won the toss and elected to field, which might have been a costly error as the staff went out quickly scoring boundaries and sixes to set up a commanding, almost unreachable tally of 155. Staff wickets fell steadily, mostly through catches in the outfield by, what can only be called, reckless batting but also through some surprising slower paced bowling which caught some of the more enthusiastic staff members unawares. It was always going to be a tough chase but to the students' credit they battled hard and used every man and woman at their disposal, even pulling in a few past Year 12 graduates, to try and reach the staff score. However, in the end, the win, glory and bragging rights went to the staff until the Netball Challenge later in the year.
Well done to all players involved for their tremendous display of good sportsmanship.
