WPCC is lucky to have a combined girl’s team with Carnegie CC. And what a great summer was had by many of our 13 & Under female players who participated in representative teams.
Elizabeth Cormack and Alannah Gora were selected for the U14 South East Bayside Breakers and Amelie O’Meara and Olivia Turner for the U14 Inner South East Scorpions in the Youth Premier League (YPL) in January.
Both teams acquitted themselves well with the Breakers narrowly missing out on finishing top of the table by 2 runs in their last game. I am sure the highlight for Amelie would have been the 40 rtno in round 4. Liz would have enjoyed her 17 no in round 2.
Alannah the 2/15 in round 3 taking out two very strong batters and for Olivia round 6 where she made 14 no as well as tidy bowling figures of 0/2.
Following the YPL, Amelie and Olivia were fortunate enough to play in the representative team for the Inner South East Cricket Association (ISEC) in the Julie Savage Shield.
Another WPCC/Carnegie player represented the South East Cricket Association (SECA) in the same competition, Daisy Gee. ISEC maintained their position as champions winning back to back shields. Congratulations to Amelie, Olivia and Daisy for their brilliant efforts in ISEC and SECA.

Continuing on the representative opportunities for our young players, Cricket Southern Bayside asked the All Girls Cricket Competition to put together a team to play against Cricket Tasmania in the week leading up to Australia Day. WPCC/Carnegie were well represented in this team with Elizabeth Cormack, Daisy Gee, Alannah Gora, and Amelie O’Meara all being selected.
The competition comprised four games, two of which were played on turf. Our players did themselves proud with Amelie scoring 47no in the first game, bowling figures of 2/8 in the second and 18rtno in the fourth. No wonder she won player of the competition. Congratulations Amelie!
Daisy’s highlight would have been the 2/10 in the last game. For Liz, 20 runs in the third game and 1/10 in the second. Alannah surely was happy with 1/6 in the first match and 11no at the end of play in the third.
Most importantly, they came together as a team with very little opportunity to play together prior to the competition week. It was wonderful to see the development of their skills over January and for the AGCC team to bring home the silverware. Hopefully next year we get to go to Tassie!
