Paige does Maryborough proud at Indigenous Cricket comp

SINCE she was a kid, Maryborough's Paige Hatherell has always had a knack for cricket.

And the 14-year-old's efforts on the field have been put to the test at the National Indigenous Cricket Championships in Alice Springs.

Hatherell is one of 13 women from all over the country aiming for a top spot in the competition.

Her mum Renee couldn't be prouder.

"It hasn't been easy for her to get this far, playing through the boys team,” Renee said.

"The thing in our family is we want our kids to be committed to what they're doing.

"So ever since she first picked up the bat three years ago, she's never looked back.”

Renee said it was incredible watching Paige reach her full potential on the field.

"It's one of the biggest moments of her life, achieving this,” she said.

Paige will play in Alice Springs until Monday.
