Cricket: Saint Catherine's Catholic College and Proserpine State High School went head-to-head in the Year 7-9 division of the Whitsunday round of the State School Cricket titles.

Saint Catherine's won the toss and elected to bowl.

Proserpine's opening batsmen Isaac Comerford (40 not out) and Michael Pettiford (27) got the day off to a cracking start with an opening partnership of 90 runs.

Slower pace deliveries proved to be effective for the St Cath's bowlers as they claimed some quick wickets in the middle of the game.

Keira Smith turned PSHS's fortunes around with a quick knock of 25 runs hitting fours all around the ground.

Harrison Sherrington was the strongest of the St Cath's bowling attack with figures of 1-8.

PSHS set St Cath's a total of 6-183.

St Catherine's got off to a slow start, losing their first wicket in the second over after Jack Dwyer clean bowled the St Cath's opening batsman.

At the 10-over mark, St Cath's were reeling from a batting collapse on 6-33.

St Cath's fought back, conceding only two wickets in the next 10 overs.

Unfortunately, they were unable to see their 30 overs out.

Standout PSHS bowlers were Jack Dwyer 2-8 and Jay O'Laughlan 2-1.
