Orange High School ready for traditionally strong Astley Cup sports on Friday

They may be behind after day one but Orange High School still like their chances of claiming their opening Astley Cup tie against hosts Bathurst High.

Bathurst carry a 230 to 163 lead into day two but there’s some traditionally strong Orange High School sports still to come.

OHS sports organiser Tegan Dray likes her squad’s winning chances on Friday.

“In the athletics today we had some great performances, and with every great performance comes great support. Our crowd has been fantastic today in cheering everyone on,” she said.

“We’ve still got a couple of traditionally strong sports like the netball and hockey to come.

“We just have to keep the pressure on. At the end of the day you don’t know whether you’re really in front or behind until all the sports have been played.”

Bathurst won three of the four sports on Thursday (boys and girls soccer plus tennis), with Orange’s victory coming into the athletics.
