Team makes premier division

Last term the First XI cricket team played their final game of the season (much delayed due to Covid issues in both teams) against Glendowie College in rather gloomy conditions at Glendowie.

Westlake lost the toss and was sent in to bat for a reduced 13 over match. We scored 75 for 4 wickets. Fortunately, Westlake decided to put in their best all-round fielding performance of the season to restrict Glendowie to 60 for 9 wickets, with Leah Watton 2 wickets for 5 runs off 3 overs and Emily Watton 3 wickets for 18 runs off 3 overs, for a win by 15 runs.

This win secures the First XI promotion back into the Premier Schoolgirls division for the first time in four years and was a fitting send off for our Year 13 members Brooke James and Leah Watton who have been fantastic ambassadors for the sport for the five years they have spent at Westlake.
