Awards cap strong season for Manix-Geeves

Callan Morse -

Emma Manix-Geeves' strong season at premier league and domestic level has been acknowledged through selection in the Cricket Tasmania Premier League Women's Team of the Year.

In 12 appearances for the Greater Northern Raiders the Palawa wicketkeeper-batter scored 513 runs, the equal-highest of any player in the women's first grade competition.

Her best of 96 (76) came in Round 10 in the Raiders' narrow six-run loss to Clarence at Hobart's Kangaroo Bay Oval.

The innings was one of three 90-plus scores and one of five half-centuries compiled by the 23-year-old throughout the 2023/24 season.

Her form led the Raiders to finish third overall before being beaten by eventual champions, North Hobart in the competition's semi-final.

At domestic level, the Riverside Cricket Club product scored 245 runs at a commendable average of 30.62 in 12 appearances for Tasmania in the Women's National Cricket League competition.

The mainstay behind the stumps for the Tigers, she also took six catches, was involved in three run outs while effecting two stumpings.

Her best score of 70 (72) - one of two half-centuries at domestic level - came in Tasmania's 44-run Round 9 victory over Queensland at Blundstone Arena.

Manix-Geeves and the Tigers experienced success for a third consecutive season, edging the Queensland Fire by six wickets to become the first state outside of New South Wales to achieve a WNCL three-peat.

Batting at six, the right-hander chipped in 28* (24) in the final, partnering with centurion Nicola Carey (111* from 135) to see the Tigers home with 14 balls to spare.

Her season-long contribution to Tasmania's domestic setup was recognised at last week's Cricket Tasmania's annual awards presentation, her efforts rewarded by Tigers captain Ellyse Villani, who selected Manix-Geeves as the winner of the Female Tigers Captain's Award.
