Two weeks, two tons for Lennox

Cambridge High School’s Alfie Stowell-Sneyd and St Peter’s School wicketkeeper Matthew Carey watch closely as bowler Caleb Woodfield follows through. 

Riley Lennox of St Peter’s School continued his dream season with the bat by scoring a second consecutive century in the Waikato Secondary School colts’ competition on Saturday in Cambridge.

St Peter’s Colts finished their 40 overs with 326/3 on the St Peter’s No 1 wicket. Cambridge Colts got through to 152 all out with Jack Calcinai grabbing five wickets for 25 runs from his six overs as St Peter’s won by 174 runs.

Lennox’s 130 not out came off 87 balls and included 16 fours. The previous week the Cambridge 14-year-old scored an unbeaten 154 against Hamilton Boys’ High School. That knock included three sixes and 23 fours from 125 balls.

Lennox, who formerly attended Waihi School in Temuka and St Stithians College in Johannesburg, then showed his all-round ability by taking four catches and grabbing the wicket of Blake McKinnon with his off spin.
