Highlanders look to continue strong campaign

CENTRAL Highlands under-18 girls have one team in their path today - South East Sharks.

The Highlanders opened their Vic Spirit under-18 state championship campaign in dominant form yesterday with two Twenty20 wins.

South East Sharks had mixed results on the opening day's play.

All-rounder Jenna Bruton was the Highlanders' star yesterday but the team showed promise and depth.

The Highlanders will face the Sharks at Elsternwick today then face Gippsland Pride tomorrow in Coburg in a bid to make the final.

*TENNIS Victoria will today launch the 2014 inter-regional country championships at Creswick's Mt Prospect lawn complex.

The venue will host next year's titles - held between January 3-5 - and is expected to attract some 250 players from around the state.

It will be the 58th staging of the championships and the first held in the Central Highlands region for more than 35 years.

The event will cap a big few weeks for tennis in the region, with the Ballarat Regional Tennis Centre to host the Ballarat Open Gold AMT Tournament between December 19-22.
