The Richmond Hill High School cricket team took home the championship trophy at the PSAL City Cricket finals. A rain out pushed the championship match from Saturday, June 17 to Sunday, June 18 when RHHS defeated John Adams 118-117 for the title. The John Adams team was 12-0 this season and won 23 matches in a row before being defeated by Richmond Hill.

“It was great to see the team bowl well and hold John Adams to 117 runs,” said cricket coach Lomarshan Persaud. In their previous two matches John Adams scored 178 and 208 runs against Richmond Hill. RHHS freshman Brandon Pydana contributed to the win by scoring 50 runs which earned him MVP honors. For a team with six graduating seniors every match had extra importance. The close group has played together for four years and has seen both victory and defeat.

“I’m so proud of both Coach Persaud and our cricket program” said Athletic Director Neil Ganesh. “Our entire athletic department provides programs that build character, scholarship and athleticism while instilling life-enhancing values.”

The victory clinched John Adams hope of both an undefeated season and back-to-back titles. With its win, RHHS clinched its second city cricket championship in three years.
