Softballers picked to play in Australia



Alexandra softballers Reuben O’Neill (13), Kaleb Thompson (15) and Maisey Bond (15) have been selected for International Softball Academy teams to play in Australia this year.

Reuben has been selected for a under-14 boys team to play in a youth tournament, which incudes a team from Japan, in Sydney next month, and Kaleb has been selected to play in the under-15 boys team in the New South Wales Blues Junior Tournament in Sydney in October.

Maisey has been selected to play in the Blacktown Southern under-17 tournament in Sydney in July.

“The association is proud of their players and their achievement of selection into the academy,” Central Otago Softball Association secretary Colleen Kitto said.

Reuben said he was “excited” about the tournament.

He has represented Central Otago at age group level for three years and is keen to see how far he can go in the sport.Running sport mediaAIR MAX PLUS
