Damascus College Year 10 student Tahlia Meier recently represented Victoria at the U15 National Girls Cricket Championship in Canberra.

At the event her Victorian team finished 4th overall, and Tahlia’s personal performance was outstanding during the carnival, so much so that she was consequently selected for the Australian U15 squad.

“I had a great tournament” she said.

The Australian squad of 20 players will soon travel to Brisbane for a training camp, where the final squad of 13 will be selected to compete against the U18 team at the National Championships in January 2020.

Tahlia was the leading run scorer of all teams that played around Australia at the Canberra event; she came 3rd in the player of the series; and was also the first ever Victorian female to score a century in the U15 tournament; and the only century of the carnival.
