Sportswoman of the Year Finalist – Sophie Devine

How did you get into your sport? ​

I got into my sport through my dad and brother. They both played cricket and at first, I would just follow along to watch the games. After my first few matches, it didn’t take me long to get signed up at my local, the Tawa cricket club. After that, the rest is history!

What was your greatest achievement this year? ​

My greatest achievement this year is definitely being a part of the winning Wellington Blaze Cricket team. Together we won the Super Smash T20 competition in New Zealand.

What advice would you give a young athlete? ​

My advice for young athletes would be to try and be involved in a number of different sports. While you may not be great at them all, the benefits you can get from staying active is not only great for your physical development but also your mental health.
