The Riverine Herald - - GAME ON SUMMER - By An­drew John­ston

NA­TIONAL cham­pi­onships.

It’s a dream for any young ath­lete.

The op­por­tu­nity to com­pete against the ab­so­lute best in your age group that the coun­try has to of­fer.

That’s where Cross­man is headed.

A dom­i­nant sea­son on the court has seen Cross­man qual- Is­abella ify for di­rect en­try into the 12 and un­der sec­tion at the Na­tional Hard­court Cham­pi­onships, also known as the De­cem­ber Show­down.

Her pre­vi­ous re­sults mean she will not have to go through fur­ther qual­i­fy­ing, and will carry the num­ber 10 seed into the tour­na­ment.

The event will be run in Melbourne from De­cem­ber 11-16.

In what is an­other feather in the young­ster’s cap, Cross­man will also be a mem­ber of the Vic­to­rian 12 and un­der team for the Mar­garet Court Cup Aus­tralian Team’s Cham­pi­onship.

The event, which sees state teams of four com­pete, will be run from De­cem­ber 7-10, pro­vid­ing the per­fect warmup for the na­tional cham­pi­onships.
