Senior Cricket Played Whitefriars in their rescheduled fixture. The boys went in to bat first, setting a target of 136-8. This was due to some great batting displays on behalf of Nathan Antonucci, Joel Cramer and Sacheen Paramesh. The boys were able to bowl Whitefriars out for 97 runs thanks to great team bowling and three handy wickets from Yianni Billias.

The Volleyball A & B team had to back up their Monday game with another one on the Wednesday. Both the A & B sides were very unfortunate both going down against Whitefriars.
Whitefriars hosted our boys at Currawong Tennis Club for one of the closest matches of the season. Having played really well in the singles, it was down to the doubles to decide which team would win the match. Devastatingly our boys lost- Whitefriars 7 Sets 69 Games Def. Salesian 5 Sets 68 Games. The tennis team is currently4th on the ladder, two points behind 1st.
Just like the volleyball team, our cricketers had to back up their Monday game with another for the week. This time we faced De La Salle College. Our boys went in to bat first and immediately found it hard to make runs. The pitch gave a lot to bowlers and that is what we didn’t want. De La Salle bowled us out for 42 runs. De La Salle made the target within 12 overs and unfortunately we took another loss.
