Several Wimmera and Grampians junior cricketers have won selection in an under-18 Western Waves girls team to contest state championships in December.
Brim-Kellalac-Sheep Hills’ Anna Habel will captain the side, coached by former Waves players Steph Townsend and Eliza Smith.

Western Country regional cricket manager Stephen Field said under-18 and under-14 boys squads were nearing final selection following pathway trials on Sunday.
“Many thanks to St Marys Cricket Club at Warracknabeal and Horsham Saints Cricket Club for the use of their outstanding turf facilities at a time when any cricket has seemed almost impossible,” he said.
“Special thanks to curators Gary Fernandez and Tim Lannen for the extra time they put into the preparation.”
• Horsham, Horsham West and Birchip primary school students will contest regional T20 Blast Schools Cup finals.
Horsham Primary School will field a girls team, a boys team from Horsham West made the cut and Birchip P-12 School will send boys and girls teams to the finals.
“There are still carnivals to go in Hamilton, Portland and Warrnambool for this age group,” Mr Field said.
Horsham, Hamilton and Warrnambool will host year nine-10 carnivals this week.
• Nominations are open for Cricket Victoria’s 50-year service recognition awards for 2016-17. The awards are presented to volunteers who have coached, administered and officiated cricket games for 50 years or more. Nominations close on November 27.
