Congratulations to our NSW Youth team who have finished second at the Australian Women’s Youth Championships!
A hard fought game against Queensland on Wednesday afternoon saw them come away with silver at this years Youth Women’s Nationals, which is no easy feat.
The team really stepped up to the challenge in their round games to make the gold medal match! Going 1-2 in their first two days of the tournament, these losses meant they had to win their last two games to be in with a chance.
On Tuesday afternoon, NSW Youth came up against Western Australia and secured the win 7-3! A seven run rally in the bottom of the third was kickstarted by Mariam Arifaki and in this game we saw another solid outing from Brydi Peppard going 2IP, 2ER, and 4SO. Following this, the team went on to defeat Victoria 12-7. Some stand out performances from Eden Neave, who went 2/3 with 2 RBI and Lily McKenner also had 2 RBI.
Our very own Alyssa Frame also received the Spirit of the Game Award for NSW, which is given to a player from each team who displays the values and attributes of fair play, teamwork, community and team respect. Well done Alyssa!
Congratulations to the team. You should be very proud of this achievement!! We can’t wait to continue seeing and helping each of you develop as athletes.
