Queensland won back-to-back championships after succeeding in a badly rain-affected carnival in western Sydney.

The final never got underway due to wet playing fields, leaving the Queenslanders as victors. bigail Godfrey, Alice Smith and Chelsea Wood were named in the Team of the Championships. Not only were the Queenslanders the champion team, but they also received the Spirit of Cricket Award again for the second successive year for their general conduct.

Queensland won the Australian U15 girls championship at their first appearance in Sydney, but not until before Cricket Australia identified a scoring error after NSW had originally claimed the title. The Queenslanders, led by Jess Jonassen, returned home thinking they'd finished second but CA officials noted that NSW officials had incorrectly tallied the NSW bonus points. In fact the teams finished level on points and under championship rules the winner of the round-robin game between the two sides Queensland should have been declared the overall winner on a countback. Instead, NSW were claiming a share of the title.
