OPEN KNOCKOUT BASEBALL
As with many events this year, the Open Knockout Baseball was postponed from Term 1 and was later played in Week 5 of Term 4 at the Glenelg Baseball Club. Year 12 students had already completed classes and exams, but were keen to join the baseball team. Three teams participated in the competition, Gawler High, Seaton High and St Michael’s College. Both Seaton and St Michael’s played shortened games against Gawler High, each scoring comfortable wins before meeting in the final game. Jordan Hodges started pitching, throwing 52 pitches in 4 innings, and was dominant against a tough opposition. St Michael’s scored two runs in the first innings and throughout the game continually had good bats, putting pressure on the Seaton High fielders. In the end, St Michael’s won 3-0 in a high quality game. All the boys contributed throughout the day and it was an excellent way for the Year 12s to finish their time at St Michael’s College.
