On Friday 15 March 2019, the Boroondara Cricket Club held its 2018/2019 Season Awards Evening at which the Junior Section teams received team awards (batting, bowling and coach’s awards) and four special awards were presented.
One such award was the Best Female Player for the 2018/19 which is awarded to the best female player amongst all the girls who played this season whether it be Stage 1, 2 or 3 competitions based upon their playing record at their particular level in either Spring season or Summer season.
This season the Best Female Player was awarded to Alice Batt.
