At just nine years old, Thomas Cooper has impressed selectors at the Regional Softball Championships to be selected in the 12 year Sunshine Coast Softball Team. He does not turn 10 years old until December which makes this an amazing achievement.
Thomas played in the Glasshouse District 11 year team at the Sunshine Coast Regional Carnival and showed his ability in several positions. He played pitcher, second base and outfield when fielding and also showed his class with the bat. Thomas plays club softball with his big brother and has obviously gained many skills through this.
The Glasshouse Team won every game quite comfortably and played in the final against Nambour. They continued to show their dominance and won the final to become Sunshine Coast Champions. They only had a few runs scored against them during the whole carnival. Thomas is a very keen softballer and is excited about competing at the State Championships at Toowoomba in August.
