HOWZAT! – CJCA Christchurch Tournament a Huge Success

IMG_2566
Heaton A Team 2019

The CJCJ Christchurch Cricket Tournament is always a much anticipated part of our sports calendar. This year we were extremely excited to have both a competitive and recreational grade made available to our students, which resulted in Heaton having just under 50 players involved in 20/20 matches.

Poor weather unfortunately meant that Fridays recreational matches for both the girls’ and boys’ tournaments were cut short, however we were extremely proud and impressed with the performances of both teams.

This year, the girls’ competitive tournament comprised of 4 teams, and the boys’ competitive tournament was made up of 12 teams. Our Heaton Girls’ 1st XI played beautifully and were very consistent throughout their three games against St Andrews College, Cobham Intermediate and ChCh South Intermediate. With three wins from three games, our girls will now re-play St Andrews at the beginning of term 4 in the Christchurch Finals, with the winner progressing to the Canterbury Tournament.

Our Heaton Boys’ needed to finish in the top 4 to progress to the ChCh Semi Finals. With convincing wins against Sumner School and Breens Intermediate, and a loss to an impressive Medbury team, Heaton finished the round robin stage in third place. Heaton we re-drawn with Medbury in the semi finals and fought gallantly, however could not manage to chase down a target of 159.

I would like to express my gratitude  to our coaches Barry and Miss Caygill for their continued support and hard work. I would also like to recognise all students involved for the brilliant way in which they represented our school, and their dedication throughout the season.

An amazing cricket season comes to an end in style!

The National Primary School Shield provided our Heaton girls’ with the opportunity to play cricket amongst friends, and to test their skills against schools from within Canterbury and across the country.

The tournament was held at the NZC High-Performance Centre in Lincoln from 22nd – 24th of November. The six regional winners from around the country contested in five 20/20 matches.

Our Heaton team played brilliantly over the three competition days, recording four wins from five matches, and finishing second overall to a very strong Morrinsville Intermediate. We are so proud of you ladies!

A huge thank you must go out to our coach Barry van Beurten for sharing his passion and expertise with our students. Thank you so much for your dedication and continued support.
