Harvest Park club wins inaugural cricket tourney

San Ramon middle schooler named Player of the Tournament

The Harvest Park Middle School Cricket Club took first place in the first-ever Inter School Cricket Tournament played in Dublin over the past two weekends.

The event, organized by Cricket for Cubs, featured five teams from three Tri-Valley middle schools: Harvest Park, Fallon in Dublin and Iron Horse in San Ramon.

The kids played 10 games at Emerald Glen Park during the two weekends, with Harvest Park Cricket Club finishing on top and the Iron Horse Cricket Team a close runner-up, organizers said.

Bhuvan Sharma Kumbakonam of Iron Horse Middle School was declared Player of the Tournament.

Other individual honors went to Shamith Pasula (Iron Horse) as best batsman, Ajay Immadi (Harvest Park) as best bowler, Harish Dukkipati (Fallon) as best wicket keeper and Saket Ayinaparthi (Fallon) as best fielder.

Pleasanton Mayor Jerry Thorne was on hand to present the championship trophy to the tournament winners.

Cricket for Cubs plans to conduct another tournament in the spring and is inviting more school teams to participate. For more information, visit
