The Weekly Wrap
In what is always a great occasion in the GPS Cricket calendar, Terrace played ‘Spring Hill Rivals’ Brisbane Grammar School (BGS) in Round 6. The schools competed in a total of 36 matches against each other on Saturday at both Tennyson and Northgate, in a typically hard fought round of cricket.
Terrace were able to emerge victorious in 26 of the matches, taking an overall win percentage of 72% against Grammar, highlighted by some convincing victories in a number of age groups. The standard of play displayed by Terrace cricketers is improving with each week and we commend the playing group on their commitment to training and matches and the deserved rewards that are being achieved each Saturday.
The 1st XI recorded their third win in a row, with a bonus point victory over a youthful BGS outfit. This result leaves Terrace second on the GPS ladder and sets up a top of the table clash with The Southport School this weekend.
As we approach the back end of the GPS Cricket season, all players are encouraged to relish their final matches over the remaining weeks as the Cricket Program looks to finish the season strongly and play the Terrace Cricket way, Hard but Fair.

Round 5 saw our teams making the trip out to Ipswich. Terrace won most of the games on the day, and we are anticipating this success will prepare us well for the next two rounds against Nudgee and BGS.
The 7As continued their winning form, taking out the match 2-0. Tasman Bunkum’s improved setting and strong serving helped his 8A team to a 2-0 win. The 9As bounced back from the previous week’s loss with a crushing 2-0 win, and Harry Lane was awarded MVP for his consistent serve receive and defensive pickups.
Oscar Eastman’s improvements in aggressive hitting helped the 10As win easily in two sets. The 11As also cruised through in straight sets, and Max Balmanno was awarded MVP for consistently killing the ball. The 2nd VI won 2-0, with help from Lachlan Hill’s commitment to the team and all round play.
The 1st VI were ready to back up their win from the previous week, and did so in excellent fashion. The 1sts put up a no-fuss win in straight sets against IGS, and George Moore was a force at the net throughout the game.
Many teams are still in premiership contention, and every match counts. Join us in the Terradome this Saturday for Round 6 against traditional rivals Nudgee, which is sure to be a great day for the last home round for the season.
