Red Caps raise the BCA bar at 4-622

WENDOUREE'S second eleven batted its way into rarified territory during a day to remember at Ballarat Grammar 2 on Saturday.

The Red Caps plundered one of the biggest scores ever recorded in a Ballarat Cricket Association fixture, eventually finishing the day at 4-662.

Coronet City was the unlucky recipients of the belting after deciding to bowl when winning the toss .

Wendouree's total was the second biggest in club history behind the thirds' 4-665 against East Ballarat in 2008-09.

Cole Roscholler's mammoth innings of 291 has gone down as the highest on Red Caps records, eclipsing Heath Pyke's unbeaten 270 a few years ago, while Roscholler's second-wicket partnership of 397 with Adam Ridley, who made 162, is the best ever recorded at the club.

Brandon Weatherson (71) and Matt Smith (64 not out) also made half-centuries on Saturday.

Amazingly, Roscholler's knock was not the round's biggest, with North Ballarat veteran Stuart McGregor making 299 in the fourths clash with East Ballarat at Russell Square 2.

McGregor opened the batting and was involved in a 290-run opening stand with David Thomson, who made 115. His innings set a new club record, passing the previous individual best of 294.

McGregor lasted to be the last man out, with the Roosters finishing the day on 6-545.

Mt Clear's Jake Trevenen was the round's other double century scorer after an unbeaten 208 in the fourths against Napoleons-Sebastopol.
