Sophie Molineux

One of the next big things in Victorian cricket, Sophie Molineux has enjoyed an unrivaled junior career.

Captain of the under-18 Victorian side, Molineux is a talented top-order batter and left-arm off-spinner, also spending time learning from the state’s best last year as a rookie in the VicSpirit squad.

In 2014, having just turned 16, Molineux was named Player of the Championships at the Under-18 Nationals. She was the highest run-scorer for Victoria with 155 runs and also claimed 19 wickets for the tournament, at an incredible average of just 3.9.

In her first WBBL season, Molineux played the first 10 games, batting in a number of positions and also tying up an end with her bowling.

Molineux then departed for the Under 18 National Championships, where she led Victoria to their first Betty Butcher Shield in 12 years.
