Notable performances from the Horsham representative team came from Conor Weidemann, Jet Hopper, Logan Miller, John Officer, Will Gellatly and Xavier Bone.
Warrnambool Gold was particularly strong at under-15 level in championship games in Horsham district, where the homeside and Wimmera Mallee teams also acquitted themselves well against strong competition.
The tournaments have traditionally provided an early indication of cricketers rising through the ranks across western Victoria. Wimmera Girls Cricket League representative teams are playing in under-16 and under-14 Western Victoria Girls cups this week.
Wimmera players Lily Reading from Stawell, Adelle Weidemann, Rupanyup, and Ava Clark, Dimboola, will continue efforts playing for the Waves in a Youth Premier League under-15 girls competition in Melbourne this week.
The Waves had a 2-1 win-loss record in a Renegades League before yesterday when they played Highlanders and take on Falcons in Geelong today.
