SAINTS QUADRANGULAR TOURNAMENT – OLD PETES CREATE HISTORY

The Saints Quadrangular Tournament inaugurated 54 years ago (in 1963) commenced with a cricket tournament among Old Boys of 4 Catholic schools, namely St. Anthony’s College, Kandy, St. Benedict’s College, Kotahena, St. Joseph’s, Maradana and St. Peter’s College, Bambalapitya. As the years progressed and the tournament gained in popularity, an over 40s cricket tournament was added while basketball was added subsequentlyand rugby added still later.

This weekend of 26th and 27th August marked the 50th tournament in the 54 year old contest and the Old Anthonians had the opportunity of hosting the tournament in Kandy. While they did well hosting the tournament it was the Old Perterites who stole the show and created history in the process.

Creating a record that cannot be broken, the Old Peterites won trophies on offer for all categories of events i.e. cricket (main tournament), over 40s cricket, basketball and rugby and consequently they won the overall trophy offered for the first time. They scored a perfect score of 28 points to annex the Ranjith Samarasekera Memorial Trophy.

In addition to grabbing all trophies on offer for the 4 tournaments, the Old Peterites also walked away with many individual achievement awards as well.
