Raroa cricket teams both reach the top “What a fantastic cricket season it’s been!” says Matt Tilley, Assistant Principal of Raroa Normal Intermediate School. His comments come after the school’s boys’ and girls’ First X1 teams were both last week crowned Wellington Champions for 2018, going through to the nationals in November. Both finals were played on the Basin Reserve, providing a massive thrill as players saw their names on the huge scoreboard. In a growing rivalry, the girls met Evans Bay Intermediate in the final for the second year in a row. They won the toss and fielded. It was a good choice, with EBIS not able to recover after finding themselves at 11/3. They were all out for 41. Raroa became Wellington Champions 10 overs later. Matt said they had trialled over 100 boys before naming a squad of 21 to make up the First and Second XI teams. The second XI lost only to the Tawa First XI. “There were some superb performances from Ben Dunning with the

bat and Alex Vanucci with the ball,” he said. The 1st XI moved through with wins over Tawa Intermediate’s two best teams as well as against Discovery and Adventure in the pool games. “These performances allowed for a semi-final against Hutt International Boys’ School at the hallowed Basin Reserve on a beautiful autumn morning,” said Matt. “Batting first, we scored a n i m p r e s sive 16 0. “HIBS fought hard and got close but some superb bowling from skipper James Wilkinson with two wickets ensured Raroa would be in the final” he said. The final was also played at the Basin against a very strong side from Wellesley College. Raroa batted first again and scored a lowish total of 118. However, there were “sensational” bowling performances from Harry Law, Taka Craigie, Vanucci and Wilkinson again, with an extra piece of individual brilliance from Callum Stevens in the field “This secured a 30-run victory.”
