Redlands prove best in the state

REDLANDS were convincing winners at the Under-15 State Softball Championships which concluded in Hervey Bay yesterday, defeating Toowoomba in the final.

The talented side lost only one of its nine matches - a round-robin game against Noosa - during the event which was contested between 10 teams from around the state, including Hervey Bay.

The Toowoomba side was crushed 13-3 in the final.

The President's Cup was also played between the teams that finished fourth and fifth, Bundaberg and Rockhampton.

Bundaberg was the winner of that game, defeating Rockhampton 4-3.

Tournament convener Kirsty Andrews said the teams had all enjoyed the tournament in Hervey Bay and had each thanked the organisers.
