GPS CRICKET | ROUND 2 | SATURDAY 3 FEBRUARY

Unfortunately, rain was the ultimate decider in most games of Round 2 of GPS Cricket at the weekend. In what promised to be a great weekend of fixtures vs traditional rivals Nudgee College, only 11 matches reached a result with the majority of matches being abandoned after starting or being cancelled all together. From the games that took place Terrace were able to win seven out of 10 matches played against Nudgee College. Despite the brief games, it was heartening to hear ‘Terrace to the Fore’ being sung at both venues as teams celebrated.

GPS CRICKET | ROUND 3 | SATURDAY 10 FEBRUARY

Round 3 of GPS Cricket sees the Terrace Cricket Program play Brisbane State High School (BSHS). As BSHS only enter 17 teams into the competition the majority of the program will play supplementary matches against various opposition this weekend, games that in most cases offer a richer cricketing experience and greater opportunity to those who are playing.

TERRACE CRICKET | 2018 SEASON LAUNCH

The Terrace Cricket community once again gathered at Tennyson on Saturday evening for the 2018 Terrace Cricket Season Launch. Students from Years 10 and 12 were presented with their ‘50 Game’ caps, a justified recognition to those boys who have showed discipline, resilience, dedication and commitment to the program during their time at the College. ‘The Ron Oxenham Medal’, awarded to the gentlemen who have personified the best qualities and values of a Terrace Cricketer during their time in the program was presented to Henry Grose and Will Baker. The program would like to thank the members of the Terrace Cricket Support Group who volunteered numerous hours to help with the preparations and running of the night.

1st XI MATCH REPORT

GT v NC 8/92 (34 overs). No result – match abandoned due to rain.

Round 2 of the GPS season saw the Terrace 1st XI travel to Ross Oval for another blockbuster clash against traditional arch rivals Nudgee. Under ominous skies Nudgee won the toss and elected to bat first, looking to make the most of conditions that would almost certainly worsen as the day wore on.

Terrace applied some early pressure as Max Law (0/10 off 4) and Nick Morton (0/28 off 7) both delivered probing opening spells, however some errors in the field let Nudgee off the hook as the score progressed to 0/34 in the eleventh over. The introduction of Will Kirk (2/12 off 2.1 overs) proved pivotal as he produced two fantastic deliveries in a short period of time to dismiss both openers. An ankle problem then forced him from the field as Nudgee looked to rebuild with rain beginning to fall.

With a partnership building Terrace turned to spin as Ryan Walker (4/23 off 10 overs) and Nick McGill (2/4 off 6 overs) turned the game on its head in a remarkable 12 overs of play that saw Nudgee slide from 2/70 to 8/92. Walker in particular had the ball spinning significantly in both directions and proved too tough for the Nudgee middle order in what was a fantastic spell of bowling. Unfortunately, at the second drinks break conditions worsened again and forced the players from the field. Whilst every effort was made to get the game moving again, the rain would not relent and the match was abandoned. Whilst the result goes down as a draw, great confidence will be taken by the group from their performance. Terrace will now look to take this momentum into their Round 3 fixture against the always competitive Brisbane State High School at Tennyson this Saturday.

Rowing

We have had very exciting results with a number of crews being at the front of the field in their races as the red and black celebrated the 2018 season to date.

The regatta started on a strong note with the Year 9 crews leading the charge out of the top four Old Boys’ Cup schools. As the points officially began to start in the Year 10 round of racing, the age group rallied to three wins and two seconds in an inspiring start to the Gregory Terrace Regatta, which they also backed up in the second round. The Year 11s will look to build on their rankings as the 3rd VIII will join the regatta racing next week. The Opens showed some great potential with better results in the afternoon, claiming a second (Open 3rd VIII) and third place (Open 2nd VIII).

The day culminated with the Terrace Open 1st VIII claiming victory for the first time since 2011, breaking the drought and beating the undefeated Churchie crew in one of the closest races seen in years. Watch the final stages Right Here!Congratulations again to Nick Rex (Captain of Boats), William Gillard, Alex Sullivan, James Farquhar, Matthew Langley, Maximilian Crowe (Vice-Captain of Boats), Harry McGrath (Vice-Captain of Boats), Harry Watt, Cox: JeromePham Van Khanh on their performance.

In front of the waves of red and black support it is hard not to be proud and inspired to want to be a part of the Terrace Rowing journey.

Volleyball

Head Coach – Ms Kaitlin Sullivan

Round 2 saw Terrace Volleyball match up against our traditional rivals, Nudgee College. It was a successful day and Terrace won 14 of the 16 matches against Nudgee, with many other wins in the supplementary draws. In a thrilling three set match 7A earned their first win with tough hitting and serving from Ethan Sun. The success continued with 8A taking their match out 2-1. Ben Chatwood served the second set out to win 25-3 for the 9As. Matt McKay and James Sheehan were relentless in the 10A and 11A teams and helped their respective teams win with strong attacking. The 2nd VI found themselves in a third set decider once again, but came out victorious, with help from the support of the many Terrace boys who made the trip out to watch. The 1st VI finished the day with a convincing three set win over a credible Nudgee side, with excellent serve-receive and attack from MVP Will Lalic. This weekend we are back at home for Round 3 against State High and this Saturday is Pride of Program day. Everyone is encouraged to stay for the 1st VI game to support their sport.

1st VI Report – Mr Ben Bell

Anticipation for Saturday’s game against Nudgee was high all week at training – with both players and spectators not being disappointed on game day. A large crowd witnessed a convincing 3-0 win for Terrace over our traditional rivals. While comfortable in set scores, each point was played at a high level with both teams refusing to let the ball hit the floor without a fight. A much improved serving and serve reception performance from the boys in the Terrace colours allowed setter and captain Connor Mauro to utilise multiple options in attack. Will Lalic received MVP for the match, showing leadership in both attack and serve receive. The 1st VI look to continue their winning ways against Brisbane State High School this Saturday at home and we look forward to filling the Campbell Centre.
