Cricket – Boland news from December 2015

Six Somerset College students played for Boland during the December holidays.
Sam Henderson played for the Under 15 Boland side and had a solid week. His highlight was an unbeaten 53 to steer Boland to victory over Gauteng.
Ben Henderson played for the Boland Under 17 side and scored in the 30’s in three of the games he played.
Faye Tunnicliffe played for the Boland Girls Under 19 side and had a good week. She was the only batsman to score a 50 in the week.  Faye is also a representative of the Boland ladies team which is currently playing fixtures all round the country against the other provinces.
Phillip Carstens, Vezi Mntungwa and William Sendin represented Boland at the National Under 19 Coke Week. From their good performances at the Coke Week, Vezi and William were selected to represent the Cape Cobra’s Under 19’s at the National Cubs Week held in Stellenbosch in January 2016.  This was a huge step up for both these young men and they performed admirably, Vezi getting two scores in the 40’s and William taking 6 wickets in the 3 games he played.
Congratulations to all these players on representing their province and the College with distinction!
