Top Toowoomba talent picked in national team

SOFTBALL: Toowoomba's Ryan Merriman (pictured) has been selected as part of the 2017/18 Queensland Open Men's Team - the Queensland Patriots.

Merriman was selected in the Patriots Team after impressing selectors with his talent and skill over the selection period which included how he played at the Open Men's State Softball Championships held in Redlands last weekend.

The Queensland Patriots team will now start training towards the 35th Australian Men's National Championships to be held at the Hawker Inter- national Softball Centre in the ACT next year from January 14-20.

The 2018 National Men's Championships will see the Queensland Patriots look to climb up the ladder and build on on their fifth place at the 2016 Nationals and second place at the 2017 Nationals.
