More success for our cricket girls from Warwick

CRICKET: The Warwick area had its biggest team representation in girls cricket when four players participated in the Queensland 10-12 years cricket championships in Mackay.

The Warwick four were part of the Darling Downs team which was presented with bronze medals for third placing.

Lucy Bourke (Scots PGC) captained the Darling Downs team which had three wins and two losses.

Two games were called off in the second innings due to lightning.

Capricornia won the carnival from runners-up Wide Bay.

Darling Downs was 1-22 off six overs chasing 82 in the semi final against Wide Bay when the game was called off. Wide Bay advanced to the grand final on run rate.

Lucy was the leading runscorer at the carnival with 157 runs, including a best of 37 not out, and took seven wickets for 34, including a best of 3-10.

She will represent Queensland for the third time in this season's nationals at Barooga.

Sarah Brown (St Patrick's, Allora) opened the bowling in each game for Darling Downs.

She bowled right arm medium pace and took a wicket in the first over of two games. She had a best of 3-8 off three overs and finished with six wickets for the carnival.

Phoebe Callcott (Warwick West) batted in the middle to lower order and was involved in several key partnerships and was not out in two innings. She took two wickets with her right arm medium pace with a best of 1-4 off two overs and ran two batters out with direct hits.

Laura Scheiwe (St Mary's) was playing at her second state carnival and bowled left arm wrist spin for the regional team.

She troubled some of the best batters at the carnival and took three wickets, including 1-6 off three overs in one game.

All four played for Southern Downs in the regional trials and play in junior club competitions.

Kimmince in squad

WARWICK all-rounder is one of the Brisbane Heat players returning for the Rebel WBBL/03 season.

She will be joined by the lion's share of last season's team, including West Indian all-rounder Deandra Dottin, who is the Heat international player.
