Ipswich pair on target for Qld selection

THE Queensland girls under-18 team hasn't been picked yet but the chances of Ipswich pair Kimberley Blanchfield and Lexie Muller being there are high.

The two starred for Met West at the state 15 years titles in Toowoomba earlier this month.

Met West finished the tournament in second place with Marburg/Mt Crosby all-rounder Lexie winning the trophy for most wickets (11) and the best all-rounder award.

It was pleasing vindication for the Rosewood product, who feels she sometimes does not receive the recognition for her batting she would like.

"I see myself as an all-rounder but everyone else sees me as a bowler," she said.

Kimberley was leading run-scorer for the carnival with 162.

Lexie admitted Kimberley's masterful batting came as a bit of a surprise.

"She's doing better than last year," Lexie said.

The two grade 10 students, Lexie at Lowood High and Kimberley at Bremer, hope they will be selected in the Queensland under-18 team for the national titles in Ballarat in January.

They represented Queensland primary schools two years ago together and it is hard to see them missing out this time given their form in Toowoomba, even among some much older girls.

If Lexie is picked she is very definitive about what she hopes to achieve.

"Get runs and take wickets," she said.
