Former Tranby College student, Teague Wyllie, continued his meteoric rise in the cricketing world last week, after making his Sheffield Shield debut for Western Australia against Victoria. After being named as the only Australian in the U19 World Cup ‘Team of the Tournament’ last month, Teague became just the 6th player this century to make his shield debut before the age of 18. The 17-year-old looked at home in his debut, scoring 42 runs as WA went on to beat Victoria to secure a home final.
This week Teague played just his second match in the Sheffield Shield final against Victoria at the WACA. West Australia broke a 23-year drought by winning the Sheffield Shield and Teague has become the second youngest player to win a Shield final behind current Australian Test captain, Pat Cummins.
Teague attended Tranby College from 2016 as a Year 7, taking a place in the College’s Cricket Academy running at the time. He left in 2020 as a Year 11 student to take up a turf management apprenticeship. Last year he returned to the College in his role as Peel Cricket Officer, working for the WACA where he led a number of cricket lessons with our Junior School classes.
The College is very proud of Teague’s achievements; a result of his dedication and hard-working attitude that was evident when he arrived as a Year 7. We are excited watch as his journey continues to unfold and wish him every success along the way.
