Phillips Keeps Her Sporting Options Wide Open | The Examiner | 11 May 2013

LAUNCESTON Tornadoes player Meg Phillips might one day have to choose between basketball and cricket.

The 17-year-old Evandale point guard and year 11 Scotch Oakburn student is in her second season playing with the Torns senior team, and will line up against Knox Raiders at the Elphin Sports Centre tonight.

When she is not playing basketball, she has a cricket bat in her hand to play representative cricket at state and national level, and was last year named young female cricketer of the year.

Launceston Tornadoes coach Peta Sinclair has been impressed with Phillips's efforts this season.

"Meg trains and plays with the Tornadoes Academy, our junior development program," Sinclair said.

"I feel confident naming her in the senior team.

"She is a quality player with a great attitude, and I can see that she will go as far as her dreams will take her."
