Joffee jumps into the thick of softball nationals – The Australian Jewish News

Carla Joffee made her Australian Softball Championships debut for the U14 girls’ NSW Metro Slammers team against 12 other teams from across the country, from April 14-17 in Canberra.

The year 8 Moriah College student described playing in her team’s 7-match campaign as “a fantastic experience”.

A big hitting batter, fast runner and handy fielder, Joffee trains three times a week and is a member of the NSW State Championship-winning North Shore District squad.

Her NSW Metro Slammers came third at the nationals.

They defeated Victoria 10-9, and the NSW Country Sliders 7-4, in consecutive finals series games, before bowing out in the preliminary final to the NSW Metro Strikers, who then lost to Queensland in the final.
