Knockout Team 2016
Under sunny skies at the Glenelg Baseball Club the intrepid group played two games against Immanuel College and Marryatville High School. Game one saw the lads come up short with a 3 to 6 loss to Immanuel, in a very hard fought and close game. Game two saw the boys bounce back with a resounding 16 to 2 victory. The second game highlighted the pitching depth of the group, along with a competitive spirit that ignited pride in their performance. It was a pleasure to be involved with the group as they displayed tenacity within the games played and sportsmanship toward their opponents. Unfortunately the team did not progress to the finals round. Many thanks to old scholar, Andrew Gluyas, who took time from his busy schedule to coach the team. Also to the Glenelg Baseball Club, (especially Mr Peter McGeary) for providing the facility free of charge.
A highlight of the day was the visit of Old Scholar, Roly Vaughton who played baseball for the College in the 50's and represented the State in 1958 as a school boy baseballer.
