Cricket has been regarded as a top summer sport at Sacred Heart throughout the College's history. The College has produced some fine cricketers including domestic representatives Dean Bartlett ('05), Matt Quin ('10), Glenn Phillips ('14) and Dale Phillips (’16) and current Netherlands international Fred Klaassen (’10).
The College has outstanding Cricket facilities including six Cricket fields and a three-lane indoor centre allowing students to train all year round.
The Sacred Heart College Cricket community is involved in several prestigious traditional fixtures with other Marist schools, namely the Marist Cricket Carnival and the annual fixture with St Bede’s College, Christchurch. The Marist Cricket Carnival is a collection of 18 Marist schools playing over three Carnivals with six competing schools in each. Sacred Heart's 1st XI competes annually and hosts the Carnival in Auckland once every six years.
In 2021 the 1st XI won the Auckland 1A grade and the right to be promoted to the Premier league for 2022.
Cricket is also a part of our Sports Institute.
