What would normally have been an awards evening to celebrate and recognise this seasons’ winners, was replaced with a Facebook reveal due to COVID-19 restrictions. On 8 May, cricketers Shivam Achary (year 13), Harry Trumm (year 11), Campbell Robb (year 13) and Freddy Walker (staff) all received individual awards while the St Paul’s Development XI collected a team award.

Campbell Robb was awarded most wickets in the Waikato Secondary Schools Division 1 competition for his 11 wickets in term one. In conjunction with his individual efforts, Campbell’s St Paul’s Development XI team were awarded the trophy for winning the Waikato Secondary Schools Division 1 competition in the same term.

Staff member and Collegian Freddy Walker (Fitchett 2008-2012) received the W.P. Bradburn trophy and the N. Puna Trophy for most runs and wickets for the Hamilton men’s team, with 481 runs and 21 wickets, respectively.
