Student Achievements in Baseball

Thursday 08 Mar 2018 by Achievements@Redlands

Congratulations to Alex Skepton (Year 12), who was successful in being selected for the 2018 Met East U18 Baseball Team, following a day of trials. 

This year’s U18 State Baseball Tournament will be held at the Redlands Baseball Fields in March. Alex is very excited at the prospect of representing Redlands College at this Tournament.

Following this State Tournament an U17 Queensland Schoolboys Representative Team will be selected. Alex is hoping to be selected on this team and play at the U17 National Schoolboys Baseball Tournament in Adelaide this May.

Alex has already had a very successful start to the year, when his Queensland U18 Bandits Baseball Team came second in Sydney at the National U18 Youth Championship Baseball Tournament in January.  This was a huge achievement for such a young talented team to play so well during what was a 12 day, and at times, very hot tournament. Alex, still only 16 years old, personally had a great tournament! SA were the overall winners with some older players on this team already being signed to play for teams in the USA.
