Two of Gunnedah's best young cricket talents have starred for their respective sides at major carnivals, and earned higher accolades for their performances.
Zac Clarke was named in the Merit Team from the Independent Schools' Cricket Festival, while Zoe Fleming was selected in the Black Caps team of the tournament after helping the NSW Indigenous women's side win a record 13th straight national championships title.
Fleming played an instrumental role in the Blues' success. She was the third top wicket-taker overall for the championships with six wickets including two in the final.
Coming on at first change, her two wickets left Queensland floundering at 4-29. They never recovered, limping their way to 72, which NSW chased down inside 13 overs.
Fleming only had the one opportunity with the bat and finished unbeaten on 21.
Meanwhile playing for The Armidale School in Toowoomba, Clarke's efforts were highlighted by a memorable 6-36 to turn their opening game against Shore.
Chasing TAS' 217, Shore looked to be cruising towards victory at 2-161 after 34 overs. But Clarke perpetuated a massive collapse, with their Sydney opponents losing 8-26 in nine overs to be all out for 187.
The win was one of two TAS picked up as they finished second on the ladder.
Clarke also took 1-33 in their second day win over Riverview.
