Lucy steps up to state plate

TERRANORA'S Lucy Lockhart has proven a big hit with state softball selectors yet again.

A stand-out as captain of last year's Queensland under-16 side, Lockhart is ready to step up to the plate again, but this time with the big girls.

A stellar showing at the state championships in Brisbane earlier this month, has seen the remarkable 16-year-old earn selection in the Queensland under-19 women's softball team.

Lockhart out-played other district representatives from Brisbane, Bundaberg, Caboolture, Logan City, Mackay, Maryborough, Mount Isa, Redcliffe, Redlands, Rockhampton, Toowoomba and Townsville to secure her spot in the side.

The Tweed River High School student will now train with the squad in preparation for the 2010 National Championships in Victoria this coming January.

There she hopes to impress Australian selectors once more, as she looks to reclaim her spot in the Australian under-19 team - a position she held earlier this year as part of the 2009 squad.

If chosen, the rising star will compete at the 2011 World Softball Championships.
