I'm very pleased to share some incredibly good news from my electorate with my colleagues in this place. Last night, the Devon Meadows Cricket Club All Star Girls team won the under-14s grand final. Though I could not be at the grand final due to the sitting, I think the next best thing to being there in person is to immerse their victory in our nation's parliament. A massive congratulations to the team: Ella, Indianna, Shanyah, Alisha, Isabella, Ella, Jasmin, Addison, Hope and club president Mick Floyd. I am sure I speak for everyone in Holt when I say we are all so proud of your achievement. The Devon Meadows Cricket Club has been going strong since it was established in 1969, with the club now fielding several senior and junior teams, including, of course, the amazing All Star Girls team. I am confident that these young ladies' success will inspire girls across my electorate of Holt to get engaged and participate in our local sporting clubs. Once again, congratulations, girls.
