Tariel Lamb is the 2017 recipient of the Crowe Family Scholarship, following in the footsteps of fellow Mt Albert Grammar (MAGS) graduate Aniket Parikh, who was last year’s awardee.
The aim of the scholarship is to support a young promising individual, who displays the potential to develop the attitude and successes of the Crowe family. The scholarship supports the tuition of the recipient at the University of Auckland, alongside playing for Cornwall Cricket Club.
Two of New Zealand’s most decorated players, Martin and Jeff Crowe started their cricketing journey at Auckland’s Cornwall Cricket Club. Cornwall are wanting to assist their young talent in gaining education on and off the pitch, thus developing the Crowe Family Scholarship.
Lamb has played for Cornwall from a very young age, also representing her district and Auckland age group sides. Tariel made the first XI side at MAGS in year 9, and became captain in year 11. For the second year in a row she was named in both the U21 and U18 Auckland teams, with her next goal to play for the Auckland Hearts.
Q: What are you planning to study?
I am intending to study Law and Commerce, majoring in Economics, International Business and International Law. Alongside that I will also be studying a Certificate in Languages (Japanese). I have always been passionate about positive change, for myself and others. The above degree will help me towards achieving the ability to fulfil my passion.
Q: What does winning the Scholarship mean to you?
Being awarded such a prestigious scholarship is a great honour. It is even more of an honour to be awarded this scholarship on the merit of the Crowe family who have had such a large involvement with the club I have loved to play at from such a young age. Particularly being the first female recipient, I feel this opens a pathway forward for other young women who show passion and dedication towards cricket as it recognises rewards are available to all cricketers. I am very excited for the wider opportunity to contribute positively to Cornwall while focussing on my own cricket path and studies.
Q: What are your goals for the season?
Being well into the season already I accomplished a few of my goals which have included making the U21 and U18 Auckland side, within both these sides and the Premier Women's squad I want to be a successful player and perform at a consistent high level. With hopes to strengthen and aid the team as far in each competition as possible.
