- NB – TODAY’s MATCH has been abandoned due to overnight torrential rain, the competition will now begin tomorrow on Saturday 3rd July
After a historic launch and successful completion of the Women’s Intraregionals, the stage is now set for the next step in the USA Cricket Women and Girls pathway, the Regionals Women’s Competition.
The Regionals are split into two competitions, East and West, with the action getting underway on the East Coast this weekend. The focus first will be on North Carolina with Church Street Park as the chosen venue.
The Town of Morrisville which maintains the park has just installed a new digital scoreboard to the facility bringing glitz to the weekend’s big event. The regional volunteer women’s coordinators are being provided volunteers and logistics support from the local Triangle Cricket League and the SAMP Army Franchise to help make the event run smoothly. USA Cricket is thankful for all of the local community support being shown.
Two teams will square off over the course of the four days of action with Team East Region led by the young USA national player Lisa Ramjit who will go head-to-head with Team Central led by the experienced USA national player Shebani Bhaskar. East Region’s team coach is Kamran Khan while Central Region’s working team coach is Charlotte Dickenson with both teams featuring plenty of USA national players.
To keep up with the spirit of the holiday and to promote the sport to the young aspiring girls and boys, there are also some fun-filled activity sessions planned. Players from both teams will interact with the young aspiring players during the innings break on 4th of July. All in all the residents of Morrisville and North Carolina are in for a treat this 4th of July holiday weekend .
