The Summer (?) of Cricket Continues

Weather permitting there have been a lot of old boys and current students involved in cricket over the last week or so.

The photo, taken from today's Daily News, is of old boys Daniel Bolstad and Joe Dravitzki battling it out in the Taranaki one day semi final. A game that was won by Daniel's team Marist United which contains a goodly number of FDMC old boys.

The college 1st XV played in the other semi final where they failed to chased down Woodleigh's total of 202 but still proved to be a competitive outfit. Check out the 1st XI blog for more details.

It is great to see that not only do our students get involved while at school but they carry on their sport beyond school. A perusal of the senior cricket sides in Taranaki will show a large number of our past students still playing the game they love, which is not the case for many other schools.
