Rep honours for young cricketers

By TONY WHITE

THE Clarence Valley will have a strong representation at next week's CHS State Cricket Championships in Richmond, Sydney.

Nicole Morgan, Kara Sutherland and Angela Payne, from South Grafton High School, and Stephanie Honeybrook, from Maclean High School, have been selected in the North Coast open girls' CHS team from a host of cricketers from schools between Kingscliff and Wauchope.

And Grafton High School teacher Kerry Wilsmore will coach the team, taking over from Viv Nichols, who is in Canada on a teacher exchange.

The State Championships run from March 13-16 inclusive, and games are 50-overs per team.

The Clarence Valley trio won selection following trials in Lismore last November.

The championships are made up of four Sydney teams and six country teams, including the North Coast.

The Valley's representation this year has trebled. Kara Sutherland, a 2005 Sports Star Of The Year top 10 finalist, was the only representative in last year's North Coast team.

At the completion of the championships, two CHS teams will be chosen to play in the All Schools State Championships at the end of the year.
