Ben Venue Public School’s cricket side finished in the state’s top four at the finals of the PSSA cricket competition in Maitland this week.
In their first final on Tuesday, the team played Milton Public School and were unlucky to lose by 34 runs which saw them miss out on advancing to the grand final.
Captain Ben Heagney top scored for the side with 26 runs.
They played a second match against Parkes Public School in a playoff for third and fourth place.
Ben Venue batted first and scored 104 runs from their 25 overs.
They managed to hold Parkes to just 92.
Coach Richard Cotter was proud of what the team achieved when faced with field changes and scorching heat.
"It was fantastic with what they have done and how far they have come,” he said.
"They performed really well under difficult conditions, temperature-wise and we were moved to a different field at the last minute because it had been raining the night before. They did themselves proud.”
