Last Saturday Taylor Hamblin (13) from Wilston North Junior Cricket Club made history when she hit the first-ever century in all-girls cricket in Queensland.
Playing in the Brisbane North Junior Cricket Association, Taylor hit an unbeaten 108 off 63 balls to lead Wilston North to victory over Valley Navy in the Prestwidge Shield, bringing up triple figures with a six.
The Brisbane North Junior Cricket Association is a pioneer for girls' cricket in Queensland, with their 37 teams the highest for any association in the state.
In the north of the state, Farah Boustead made her own slice of history on the weekend when she hit the first-ever T20 century in the Cricket Far North Ladies Competition.
Playing for Mareeba District Cricket Club, Boustead finished 101 off 57 balls as her team chased down North Cricket Club's total of 168 in 16 overs.
The breakthrough performances of both players marks an exciting time for women's cricket with the Women's Big Bash League having commenced on the weekend following Australia's successful World Twenty20 campaign.
The WBBL will once again head to regional Queensland this summer, with the Brisbane Heat to play games in Mackay (January 5 and 6) and Cairns (January 12), with all games free to attend.
