Cricket Victoria have announced the 13 player squad to play in the Under 18 National Championships, with 3 players from Sunraysia making the team.
Former Sunraysia Academy of Sport athletes; Makinley Blows, Rhiann O’Donnell and Annabel Martin have all been successful in being named in the Victorian Under 18 Girls Cricket team. Both Makinley and Rhiann are returning players from the 2012-13 side. Annabel has been elevated from the Under 15 squad into the Under 18 team. All three girls are a part of the Mallee Murray Heat team.
The squad was selected through an intensive process which included the winter academy training program, Country and Metropolitan series and club cricket performances.
Aiming to go one better than last season’s runner up finish to New South Wales, the squad will embark on an intensive training program in preparation for the National Championships which will be held in Ballarat from January 14-20.
The Academy would like to wish all three girls all the best for their preparation and tournament.
