Cricket tour takes students to Sydney

A MIXED team made a good team for the Dalby Christian College who returned on Sunday from a nine day cricket tour to Bowral in New South Wales.

Made up of eight students across Years 7-12, the trip provided a challenge for all to work as a team and improve individually.

Vice-captain Corey Nolan said the team bonded and played well together.

"It was a great team to go away with,” Corey said.

"We played really well and everyone got an equal go including the younger and inexperienced players, they got a really good go and actually did really well and improved a lot.”

Part of the team bonding was a buddy system - matching up young players with older ones.

16-year-old Corey has been playing cricket for the last year and jumped at the chance to go away with the team.

"I wanted to go for the opportunity to play against a number of different schools that were bigger than us and the opportunity to see Sydney with my mates,” he said.

Dalby played four games in total against their host school and other schools in the region, winning two.

While they were on tour the team had the chance to do some sightseeing, visiting the Sydney Cricket Ground, the Bradman Museum and the Greg Chappell Cricket Centre.
