Upper Canada College’s varsity cricket team won its fifth consecutive Conference of Independent Schools Athletics Association (CISAA) championship on May 24.
The title was secured with a seven-wicket victory over St. Andrew’s College, which gave the team an undefeated 4-0 record in CISAA play. The Blues have only lost one league game in the last five seasons.
The Blues were also undefeated in four exhibition matches this year despite being the most inexperienced team in the past few years, with just four Year 12 players.
The biggest win of the year was against Trinity College School, where the Blues scored 288 runs and won by a margin of 249. Mark Baxter, who coaches the team with Premek Hamr, says it was probably the highest ever run total in the league. Adharsh Kennedy Ganesh also broke the record for an individual score in that game with 150 runs.
The Blues will finish their season with the Mayor's Cup tournament against public high schools at Sunnybrook Park on May 29.
