Andrew makes the transition look easy

CLUNES Public School student Andrew Muscat has won selection in the North Coast Public Schools Sports Association boys' softball team.

The 11-year-old was a surprise selection in the squad because he is better known in sport as a baseballer.

The Marist Brothers Under-14 pitcher was among 14 boys picked in the squad, which will compete in the NSW championships at Orange.

Andrew won his spot after impressing selectors at the try-outs on Monday at Albert Park in Lismore.

“I felt like a bit of a change so I tried softball where I play on first base,” Andrew said.

“Going to Orange is really exciting because even though I'm the only one from Clunes, I know the Wyrallah Road kids.

“I knew most of the people at the try-outs; playing the round-robin there was like mixing with my mates.”

Wyrallah Road Public School is well-represented in the squad with four students in the team: Daniel Flynn, Corey Nind, Hayden Watt and Jake Youngberry all making the grade.
