Rosmini College wishes to congratulate Tohi Smith-Milner who has been selected to the BBNZ U20 Basketball Squad. The squad will be travelling to Australia to play in February. It is another high achievement for Tohi who continues to develop as a basketball player. Hopefully this will open the door for him to play in the U.S.A.
Rosmini 162/10 (Ryan Harrison 33; H King 4/18, Luke Guildford 3/33) defeated Auckland Grammar 132/10 (Will Hay 40; Josh Hilton Jones 3/28) by 30 runs In a pulsating game that see-sawed back and forth Rosmini came away with the points.More
Today we played St. Laurence's College at their home ground here in Brisbane. For the forth time in a row we lost the toss and SLC elected to bat first. After a very slow start, Jean gave the boys one his motivational speeches at drinks break (others may call it a kick up the bum). They went back out and started playing with true Rosmini spirit (I guess the kick up the bum worked). Lead by Niko Weerakoon, the wickets started tumbling. Niko notched up a spectacular 6 wickets for 24 in 9 overs. Some sharp keeping by Shaun Cooke sealed the fate of the opposition. SLC was all out for 108 after only 33 overs.More
We played competition leaders Trinity College from Perth, they were a tough team and their opening partnership put on 135 before the fall of the first wicket and eventually going on to make 219/7 after all 50 overs. Rosmini were unable to chase down the score eventually all out for 154 after 41 overs. Notable performances by the boys on the day was Sam Bowden bowling 3 for 30 off 10 and Kieran Seedall batting 52 off 68 balls.
Rosmini Played St. Patrick's College from Strathfield, Sydney. We lost the toss and St. Pat's elected to bat first and went on to put 186/9 up for Rosmini to chase down. Notable performances by Niko Weerakoon who bowled 3 for 34 after 9 overs and Josh Hilton-Jones who bowled 2 for 28 after 10 overs. Unfortunately after a good opening by Jake Fitzgibbon (35) and Fraser Conway (26), continued pressure put on by the St Pat's bowlers meant we fell short, all out for 143 after 46.5 overs.More
