East Gippslander Sophie Molineux was one of three Test debutantes in the Australian women’s team overnight in the UK.
What a reward for years of hard work and persistence... mixed with an enormous amount of natural talent.
Congratulations to Sophie and her family along with everyone else who has played a role in her cricket journey. An inspiration to all young girls to follow in her footsteps.

I always enjoy speaking to students about my role as a Federal representative and the opportunities in our region. And rest assured, I get plenty of tough questions in return!
It was a pleasure spending time with Year 8 students at Traralgon Secondary College this morning talking about the different levels of government, local projects they are interested in and some of their ideas for the future.
