Eight Scorpions have selected their top three, with Brooke Harris and Stacey Oates from Sturt, plus West Torrens’ Tahlia McGrath all featuring heavily.

Six of the eight Scorpions are backing Harris to take home the Medal, after her outstanding season with bat and ball. The former West Torrens player had a fantastic debut season with the Blues, taking 34 wickets at 8.24 and compiling 232 runs.

McGrath also had a stellar campaign, finishing third for runs with 238 and second for wickets with 25 at 6.52. The Eagle nabbed two 5+ wicket hauls, including her career-best figures of 6/37.

After a breakout season with the ball in 2018-19, Oates turned her attention to her form with the bat in 2019-20.

She finished atop the run-scoring leaderboard, posting 299 runs at an average of 33.22 and also collected 18 wickets at an average of 17.56.

Sam Betts and Tegan McPharlin from Northern Districts, Bridget Patterson of Kensington, plus Ellie Falconer and Amanda-Jade Wellington from West Torrens are also all likely to poll votes, according to the Scorpions.

The Karen Rolton Medal winner will be announced online from 6pm Wednesday, 25 March. Be sure to follow @SACAComps and @SACANews on Twitter, plus the South Australian Cricket Association Facebook page to follow along.
