Adelaide High School, Underdale High School, Unity College, Woodcroft College and St Aloysius College collectively fielded 10 teams to take part in the carnival, which was made up of three rounds of 12-over matches.

Adelaide High #1 took home the title, playing off against Unity College in the final.

Statewide Super SA Scorpions Brooke Harris, Katelyn Pope and Tahlia McGrath were present on the day, answering questions from the girls and helping with matches.

It was also one of the first events that SEDA College students have helped to facilitate, since SACA announced its partnership with SEDA’s newly established campus in Adelaide late last year.

A barbeque lunch was provided and girls were encouraged to wear purple, the international colour for women that signifies justice and dignity, with many sporting vibrant ribbons and zinc.

SACA Female Pathway Officer Taryn Williams led the event, with approximately 80 girls taking part.

“International Women’s Day is a widely celebrated day and we feel it’s important to mark it with a female-centred event,” Williams said.

“Increasing and sustaining women and girls as participants, officials and fans is of key importance to SACA, all year round.

“The carnival was a great opportunity for girls of all abilities to take part in organised cricket, where every player had the chance to bat, bowl and field.”
