Ryde Hawks win the 2014 Sydney Women’s Invitational
With the 2013 Sydney Women’s’ Invitational finals rained out, and the subsequent decision of Melbourne Wolverines over the Ryde Hawks determined on a count-back, there was no doubt that each team set out to win every game in the Tournament in 2014.
After a fabulous weekend of baseball, the grand final saw a face-off between the Ryde Hawks and the combined Greenway/Baulkham Hills team. The Hawks secured their place in the finals by going through the preliminary rounds undefeated with wins 7-4 over Baulkham Hills/Greenway, 20-4 over Central Coast Marlins, 20-0 over Blacktown, 18-8 over Cronulla and 7-6 over ACT. After five grueling innings and some great pitching by Britney Hepburn, a member of the Australian National Team at the last World Cup, the Hawks emerged victorious with a final score of 10-0. As the winners of the 2014 S.W.I.T., the Hawks now have their victory immortalised on the perpetual trophy, as well as taking home the $1800 prize money on offer for the event. We congratulate the Ryde Hawks for their convincing performance at the 2014 Invitational.
The annual home Run Derby was also held, with Maddy Lenard from Ryde taking the prize for the “Most Home Runs” hit and Steph Gaynor from Blacktown winning the award for the “Longest Hit”.
