Celebrating national cricket glory 

We couldn’t have been prouder of the St Matthew’s Collegiate First XI cricket team following their win in the 2023 NZC Venus Cup Nationals in December!

First slide: The St Matthew’s Collegiate First XI cricket team celebrate their success with WBS Head of Marketing and Community Investment, Melissa Wardell, left and WBS CE, John Healy, right.
Second slide: The team called in to show off their trophy… and their awesome uniforms.

The team called in recently on their way back from a tournament in Hawkes Bay to show us their cup and their flash WBS-sponsored uniforms. They’d been undefeated across the 3 days of the Venus Cup competition in December, where they faced other college teams from across the country. Captain Emma McLeod also scored the first ever T20 century at the tournament.

Well done team! You did yourselves, your school and your region proud.
