Alex Skepton makes Queensland State Baseball team

Friday 20 Apr 2018 by Sport@Redlands

During all the rain last week, Alex Skepton (Year 12) was competing at the Queensland School Sport 14 - 18 Years Baseball Championship.

This event was hosted by Met East following Alex’s team winning this tournament in 2017. This year’s tournament was meant to be held at the Redlands Baseball fields, however the wet weather last week caused these fields to be totally soaked so the tournament was relocating to Darra.

At the conclusion of the tournament 17 players from across the State were named on this year’s Queensland Schools Baseball 17 Years and Under State Team. Alex was very fortunate to be named one of them, after he personally had a successful state tournament.

This National Queensland Team will be travelling to Adelaide in late April/early May where they will play against the best players in this age group during a week-long competition.
