USA Cricket Operations Director, Richard Done, commented, “There was a superb weekend of cricket on the fine turf wickets and facilities at Church Street, Morrisville for the Eastern Regionals which were closely fought and saw some fine individual performances. I would like to pay tribute to all of the volunteers who came out in their droves to support this event and we congratulate all of the players selected and emphasize that there is an exciting opportunity for all players to continue to work closely with the USA Women’s Coach, Julia Price in their ongoing development.

The Prairie View Cricket Complex in Texas will then play host to the Western Regionals this coming weekend and, with free admission for all four days, if you are in Texas please come down to support the women and girls as they play in what will be another extremely competitive Regional Series.”
