For the first time in almost a decade, SACS Cricket is starting to put in performances indicative of the proud cricketing history that the school holds.
The last time that SACS Cricket was considered a powerhouse in South Africa was back in 2007 where the 1XI enjoyed a dominant run spanning two years which included a 14 game unbeaten streak.
At the time, a local sports website had SACS ranked at number 1 in the country and featured now Protea, Dane Piedt at the summit of the bowling rankings.

Moving to the present, SACS cricket has seen a wonderful resurgence and shows no signs of slowing down looking at the performances of the U/14 and U/15 teams.
With the return of one of the Schools beloved cricket coaches Mr Allan Willows, and a fantastic group of coaches, the young SACS men are in very safe hands.

Historic opening partnership of 243 between Greg Willows (152) and Matthew Begg (95) in 1st XI match vs Paarl Boys High on Saturday 15th October.
Well done SACS men!
