The ‘Ross Taylor Bat’ will take pride of place in the Wairarapa College trophy cabinet after they went through the Central Districts tournament unbeaten.

The win in their debut appearance at Wednesday’s tournament has special significance for the college, because Taylor attended Waicol before moving to Palmerston North Boys High School.

The one-day tournament of 15-over-a-side games is the brainchild of the Black Cap great and is aimed at giving the colleges below the top echelon a higher level of cricket.

Hawera High School, Taradale High School, Feilding High School, Paraparaumu College, and Whanganui High School were the other schools representing their districts in the tournament held in Palmerston North on Wednesday.

Three teams ended up equal on points at the end of the round-robin, with Waicol pipping Whanganui High School and Paraparaumu College, with a slightly better nett run rate.

Waicol were unbeaten in three matches, comfortably beating Hawera, Feilding, and Taradale.
