Ticking goals off their list on field, it was the off-field work of the Tasmanian Inclusion cricket side that really showed their true spirit.
Competing at the National Cricket Inclusion Championships, the team - coached by former South Launceston player Liam Devlin - took it upon themselves to fundraise for those affected by the bushfire crisis, raising over $1500 by selling stickers.
"The boys picked up on social events about the bushfire epidemic on the mainland and wanted to help in some way," Devlin said.
"I suggested that we get a sticker made up and Flying Colours came on board and provided the stickers free of charge for the good cause."
Achieving semi-final status for the first time in Tasmania's six-year history at the carnival where they compete in the intellectual disability competition, Devlin said the boys' fundraising effort was a perfect way of giving back.
"I was extremely proud because a lot of people forget, especially the boys themselves, that a lot of people give up their time and make a financial contribution just to get them away [for the carnival]," he said.
"It takes a lot of donations and a lot of hard work - Cricket Tasmania do a lot of work, New Horizons do a lot of work.
"It's fantastic to see these guys give back in some way when they are not going to see anything in return - they are donating their time and effort to somebody else."
Boasting two Australian representatives, Devlin predicts the carnival will have pushed others into international contention.
