FOUR South Perth crick­eters have been named in WA's fi­nal 13-player squad for the Girls Un­der-18 Na­tional Cham­pi­onships in Ho­bart.

FOUR South Perth crick­eters have been named in WA’s squad for the Fe­male Un­der-18 Na­tional Cham­pi­onships in Ho­bart in Novem­ber.

Chloe Wain, Caitlin Cro­cetta, Emma Meule­man and Gemma Cas­sidy will com­pete in the tour­na­ment, which runs from Novem­ber 23-29.

WA coach Orazio San­talu­cia said the squad had worked well as a group since late July as had worked on their skills and fit­ness to meet the de­mands of a tough tour­na­ment.

“There are eight girls who re­turn from last sea­son’s squad as well as a few un­der-15 squad grad­u­ates from last sea­son,” he said. “The squad is still rel­a­tively young, but will com­pete hard, look­ing to bet­ter last sea­son’s dis­ap­point­ing tour­na­ment.”

Last sea­son’s tour­na­ment ran in Jan­uary and San­talu­cia said the change would re­quire ad­just­ments.

“The change in tim­ings of the tour­na­ment this sea­son has pre­sented a new chal­lenge to the group who have been used to it run­ning in Jan­uary,” he said. “So this re­quired a change in mind­set in or­der to be in the best pos­si­ble shape to com­pete.”
