The Northern High School Hurricanes Cup finals were played at Scotch Oakburn Park yesterday.

In the first of the semi-finals, SOC Maroon defeated Riverside High School in a great game with Maroon running out victors by 22 runs.

In the second semi-final, SOC Navy defeated Queechy High School 151-94 but it wasn’t until the last few overs that Navy drew away in a convincing win.

The Grand Final couldn’t have been a better stage as both SOC teams made it through; a great result for our girls and our coaches Naomi O’Loughlin and Belinda Wegman. It was a tight final as momentum swung both ways throughout, however Navy ran out eventual winners 6/144 to 9/100, to become the Northern High School Hurricanes Cup champions.

A presentation by Cricket Tasmania will be held in the coming days to our winning team at assembly.

A terrific day for girls cricket and a very proud moment for the College.

Tasmanian State High School Basketball Championships

This weekend will see two of our teams competing in the Tasmanian High School Basketball Championships being held at Elphin Sports Centre in Launceston.

Our Senior Girls, coached by Mrs Gelinda Dell and our Junior Boys, coached by Mr Elliot Warren will be competing against the best High School teams from each region of Tasmania in the hope of winning a State Final for their respective age group.

Overall 36 teams will be participating in this Championships in what is shaping up to be an exciting weekend of basketball.

The teams have been allocated to pools over the weekend based on their specific rankings in each region and a summary of their Saturday 20 November games is as follows:

Game times on Sunday 21 November will be determined by the placings of each team after Saturday games.

The teams would certainly appreciate support from our Scotch Oakburn community if you have time to call into a game or two.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank those staff and parents who will be assisting with all teams over the weekend and wish all teams the best of luck for their games.
