SEVENTEEN-YEAROLDMossman State High School student Keel Sorensen represented Peninsula at the Under 19 Queensland Cricket State Championships in Bundaberg where he won a silver medallion.
The Peninsula team, made up of high school boys from Tully to Mossman, Cairns and the Tablelands, had an outstanding and very successful achievement winning all of their three matches against Darling Downs, Presidents XI and Capricornia from 5-7 March.
At the end of day three both the Peninsula and South Coast teams had won all of their 3 matches.
Under competition procedure the championship winner was determined by a quotient calculation of runs by wickets which gave South Coast first place position.
Keel who also plays for the Muddies second Grade cricket team took 3 wickets over the three-day tournament.
Mossman High School HPE teacher Ben Vikionkorpi who coached the Under 19 team was very impressed with how the Peninsula team performed as this is the first time this age group has won all of their matches.
