Kearsney hold their head high in two cricket festivals

2014-10-09 00:00

KEARSNEY College’s U14 and U15 cricket teams have been busy these holidays, playing in the Charl van Rooyen and Grey High festivals respectively.

The U14 players packed their bags for Bishops in Cape Town, sending an encouraging message to fellow competing schools by winning all their matches.

Playing Pretoria Boys’ High, Selborne, St Andrews and the hosts, Kearsney flew their flag high, the youngsters playing with pride and passion.

It bodes well for Kearsney that cricketers at U14 level are competing strongly and winning against schools from outside the province — a promising sign as players progress to senior ranks.

Grey High in Port Elizabeth hosted their U15 festival and again, Kearsney were not over-awed, being respected opposition in winning three of their four matches.

They beat Wynberg, Woodridge and Grey College (Bloemfontein), their loss coming in a narrow two-wicket defeat to Pearson.
