Clarence cubs dominate state under 19 squad

The Under 19 Tasmanian Female Cricket squad, which includes five players from the Eastern Shore, has travelled to Brisbane to take on some of the best emerging players in the country.

In a gruelling schedule that involves six games across four days, the Tasmanian side will face off against elite-level under 19 talent from around Australia and the under 23 side from Papua New Guinea.

The 14-woman squad includes Clarence players Taylor Brooks, Sophia Di Veneto, Talia Heyward, Jessica Ransley and Kate Sheriff.

Head coach Natalie Schilov said the national championships were always a good test for the female Tasmanian pathways squad.

“We’ll be aiming to compete and implement a number of things we have been working hard on both as individuals and as a group,” she said.

“We are excited to get out there and play more cricket and see what our talented youngsters can achieve at this level.”

North Hobart bowler Shelby Leonard is one player hoping to impress during the tournament and gain some recognition at the national level.

“This championship is a valuable opportunity for every player in the squad to put their case forward and show that they are capable of performing at the highest level,” Ms Leonard said.

“As a left-arm bowler I feel like I can make a unique contribution to any team and I’m excited to show that at a national event.

“The success of the Tasmanian team in the WNCL has been a great inspiration for us. To train alongside them and see their dedication and work ethic has been amazing.”
