Both are now vying for selection in the higher-tier State Challenge in January, which sees the best juniors from country and metro regions across the state compete.
Meanwhile, Blues female players Eliza Heinecke, Hilary Swan and Annalee Watson have been busy participating in the Cricket NSW McDonalds Women's Country Championships in Raymond Terrace.
Hilary and Annalee participated in the U15 age division, with 12-year old Annalee invited to 'play up' in the squad. Hilary will also play up in the U18 division, joining Eliza in the older squad.
Another Highlands female junior, Caitlin Appleyard from Bowral Cricket Club, also participated in the U15 division.
