Softball Reps Make NSW Proud

From the 2nd – 8th January Softball Australia held the 48th U17 Girls’ National Softball Championships at Blacktown International Sportspark. Three of The Academy’s talented young softballers Shaylan Whatman, Georgia Britton and Emily Peters all competed as members of the NSW representative team.

This team went through the entire tournament undefeated, winning the final 5-1 against a strong South Australian team. Emily toughed out the heat on the final day, pitching through the whole game.

Shaylan received the ‘Batting Award’ for the tournament and was selected in the ‘All Stars Tournament Team’ at her 3rd base position.
