While the Australian team was fighting it out for a World Championship in Surrey last week, the QLD Women's U23 team battled the weather and the rest of Australia to bring home the Joyce Lester Shield. Bears A1 Coach, Kevin Jenkins, led the QLD girls to a 7-2 victory over NSW in the grand final. Also in the team were Bears A1 players Becky McDonnell and Stephanie Curtis (pictured below). The team had some great results during the week, but none better than the victory over NSW in the grand final to bring the shield home to QLD. Becky McDonnell won the 'Best Batter' award and was named in the 'All Tournament Team' as the Designated Player. Well done Kevin, Steph and Becky!
