The Armidale School fell just short of claiming the prestigious Douglas Shield title after one of their most successful tournaments since the turn of the century.
It's been a long time since a TAS team has made a final in the annual cricket competition, with their last win in 2002, but they managed to make it to the final hurdle to take on Orange's Kinross Wolaroi.
They qualified for the final in bizarre fashion after playing Riverina Anglican College in the match prior and finishing with a draw.
TAS were awarded the place in the decider with Riverina all out and TAS losing one less wicket.
They faced a dominant Kinross side in the final who won the toss and batted first.
The home side posted 8-241 from their 50 overs.
In reply, TAS fell short, finishing on 9-191.
While they didn't land the victory, TAS skipper Kieran Dennis was thrilled with making it to the final.
"I am extremely proud of all the players, a TAS team hasn't made it this far in this comp for almost 20 years so for us to make the final was a fantastic achievement," he said.
"I am very proud to be able to captain a team that has done so much better than even we ourselves thought we would do."
Sam Skipper was the standout batsman for TAS in their run chase, managing 78.
With the ball, Cotter Litchfield finished with 2-26 off 10 overs, Andrew Kirk 3-40 from 10 overs, Liam Smith 1-44 from eight and Nick Corderoy 2-42.
"I wouldn't say we were outclassed, when we bowled we had a few half chances that could've gone our way and changed the game," Kieran said.
"All of the top four didn't score as many runs as they could've and mostly got ourselves out through a poor shot rather than being outclassed.
"To make 190 against Kinross shows how we were able to put up a really good fight."
Dennis and the TAS team also play in, and are leading, the Armidale District second grade competition.
While it is his last season with the school's side, there is still plenty of time on the field left yet and Kieran is eyeing off silverware before he finishes up.
"We have a match against Kings in a couple of weeks which will be a huge test but also a great opportunity to challenge ourselves," he said.
"After that the focus will certainly be hopefully winning the grade comp which would be a huge achievement."
Although the skipper will depart, he believes the future of the TAS team looks bright with the standout performers from the Douglas Shield squad sticking around for another year.
"Our two leading wicket takers are both in year 11 and four of our top five run scorers will also be playing next year," Kieran said.
"I think the team has a really good chance again with some quality players who are only going to get better."
Kieran has been a mainstay in the TAS cricket squad for a number of season and said being part of the sport has been a highlight of his school career.
"This season has certainly been my most enjoyable season playing cricket at TAS," he said.
"To be able to play cricket with my best mates is definitely the most fun I've had during my whole schooling."
