SEEKING REDEMPTION: Ben Caskey starred for TAS in last year’s event.
THE ARMIDALE School will be looking to reclaim a sporting trophy for a competition in several sports when Sydney Boys’ High visits the north with around 200 students this weekend.
Competitions in rugby, football, basketball, tennis and rifle-shooting will take place for the Hannon and Harris Cup, named for long-time staff members at each school and won last year by High for the first time.
The visitors will arrive on Friday afternoon, with tennis being played by a Junior IV (Years 7-9) and a Senior IV (Years 10-12) on TAS courts at 6.15pm, and then basketball games between a year 9-10 team and the schools’ Firsts team, at 7.30pm.
Rifle shooting commences at 8.00am Saturday, with shooters from TAS, High and New England Girls’ School competing for the Tank Shell Trophy in a small-bore competition at the TAS Meadowfield range.
This year’s competition will be staged as a 50m 20-shot deliberate match and a 50m eight-shot rapid match, with a possible score of 280.
The Tank Shell trophy will be decided on by picking out the eight top aggregate scores form each school.
Ten rugby games from the 13s upwards will be played on Saturday, culminating in the First XV clash at 12.30pm, after a rugby relay event featuring four runners per school in each age division.
Unlike in previous years Saturday’s top level clash will be treated as a GPS pre-season game, with the two schools to meet again for competition points in Sydney in July.
The TAS Second XI Football team will face High’s Thirds, on the school’s Adamsfield on Saturday at 9am.
“The annual visit from Sydney High is traditionally a highlight of our sporting calendar and also for our visitors, many of whom are on their first school sporting tour and venturing out of Sydney for the first time,” Director of Co-curricular Will Caldwell said.
