Aussie softball glory for Noonan
GLADSTONE softball star Michael Noonan has been selected in the 2016 Australian junior boys' squad.
Noonan is one of only 34 athletes from around Australian to make selection for the squad, and one of a total of 11 Queenslanders to be chosen.
The squad will now spend the next few months training for the 2016 International Friendship Series which will be held at Blacktown International Sportspark from July 4 to 8.
The International Friendship Series is an annual tournament that presents a valuable opportunity for these players to take part in an international standard competition.
It is the first step for many towards selection in national junior and open team.
It is also used to assist with talent identification for aspiring national athletes of the future as well as providing a foundation for skill development.
