News from Round 8

DSC_0238It appears our run of bright, sunny mornings are coming to an end, but at least it didn’t rain today! (I’ve jinxed it now I know)
6 games of fastpitch as usual for Round 8, but the focus of this weeks news is the youngsters in the park. Softball Victoria announced its State, Academy and Development teams this week, and we are thrilled to congratulate three of our current MSA members for making squads

Caitlin Laird (Monash) – U15 Academy Squad
Hana Barbaro (Eastern Raiders) – U15 Academy Squad & U17 State squad
Chelsea Owen-Smith (Melbourne University) – U17 Development Squad

We also like to extend our best wishes to the following players, who have called Fawkner Park home in the past

Moana Benjamin (Monash) – U17 State squad
Kylie Steemers (Red Devils) – U19 Women
Meaghan Grah (Red Devils) – U19 Women
Narisse Privitera (Red Devils) – U19 Women
Natasha Holt (Red Devils) – U19 Women

Last but not least, MSA umpire Simon Ross’ daughter Bianca was also named to the U19 Women’s team while Bailey James, grandson of Winger Sue James, was named in the U19 Men’s team.

As always the results from Round 8 can be found HERE with the ladder (fixed after last weeks fubar) HERE. They should be up to date no later than Tuesday am.
