The 2016 International Women’s Baseball Tournament saw the Australians competing against some baseball powerhouses of the Asia Pacific region, including China, Guam, Japan, Korea, Singapore, Taiwan and tournament hosts, Hong Kong.
The team came home with the bronze medal. Well done, Maddy.

Congratulations to Alex Strawhorn who has just returned from Queensland after playing in the Victorian team in the Basketball Australia U/20 Womens National Championships.
The Victorian team finished in third place at the end of the round-robin games, but unfortunately lost their semi-final to South Australia 80 –72 to miss the gold medal game. In the bronze medal play-off, they went down to Queensland 78 – 73. Congratulations, Alex.
