National call for Redcliffe champions

Posted: 12pm 05 May 2021

An "exceptional” display by the Redcliffe Leagues Softball Association (RLSA) Under 14 Girls has brought the Queensland Championship back to the peninsula.

Redcliffe beat Toowoomba in the Grand Final to lift the title after a dominating display in Maryborough last month.

The girls were also awarded the Best Defensive Team having conceded only seven runs throughout the tournament.

So close

Redcliffe’s Under 14 Boys were also in fine form at their eight-team state titles, held at the club’s Boardman Rd diamonds, but were beaten by Toowoomba in the Grand Final.

Of the 25 athletes selected for the Redcliffe representative team, five boys and nine girls were chosen for the Under 14 Queensland Squad.

“The results for the boys and girls, from our point of view, were exceptional,” RLSA President Carrie Te Wani said.

Dedicated

“The players have been so dedicated to their development and it was demonstrated in the way they conducted themselves on the diamond.

“Of course, it is always wonderful to come away State Champions and high praise to our girls for achieving this honour.

“We will continue to grow our junior development, focusing on expectations that players can meet and setting goals that hard work can achieve.

From six to 14

“I think the large increase in selections to Queensland squads from six players in 2020 to 14 players in 2021 validates this for us.”

Softball QLD CEO Ross Symonds thanked RLSA and its “many volunteers who helped make the (Under 14 Boys) State Championships an enjoyable and rewarding experience”.

This year RLSA will host the Softball QLD Masters Tournament from August 6-8 and the Softball QLD Under 18 Girls State Championships from October 1-3.
