In an exciting climax to the 2008 Marist Carnival, Assumption College had a convincing Grand Final win over the highly fancied St Gregory’s from Campbelltown. In the Semi Final, it was a last over one wicket win for the boys from Kilmore. A missed stumping in the 49th should have booked a place for Marcellin in the final. Instead, ACK prevailed and went on to be deserving winners in the first year back into the competition. Marcellin finished third with convincing win over St John’s Lismore in the play off matches.
Matt Costa from Marcellin was named the player of the carvinal with and outstanding 240 runs at an average of 52. Skipper Tim Lincoln was also included in the Marist XI for his outstanding bowling. Adam Gilchrist was the guest speaker at the Players dinner on the final evening.
