IN a nail biting finish, Atherton cricketer Amy Hunter witnessed her Queensland representative team take home the trophy at the recent U/15 National Championships, winning against NSW Metro.
Amy’s team managed to beat Metro in the final over of the game and solidify their position at the top of the podium.
Even though she didn’t take any wickets as one of their strike fast bowlers Amy kept the runs down and strangled the NSW batsman putting them under pressure.
In the previous rounds against Tasmania and Victoria Amy performed exceptionally and took a total of 7 wickets for 25 runs overall.
Amy’s mother was very proud of her daughter and is glad to see all her hard work paying off.
“I am extremely proud to see her doing well as any parent would,” she said.
“To see her getting these sorts of results is amazing.
“She is incredibly self-motivated and she’s always trying to improve her game, she lives and breathes cricket.”
With a taste of a National Championship Amy’s hunger has only grown larger as she pushes herself to improve and stamp her name in the cricketing world.
“After experiencing this Championship I realise that I really want to up my game,” Amy said.
“The Championship was absolutely amazing.
“It was great to play with the girls and come away with that grand final.”
Amy will continue to play for Atherton as she eyes off the next selection trials to return to the fields in the South and take home another trophy.
