Mack and Murn take top honours at ACT Cricket Awards

ACT Meteors skipper Katie Mack and ACT Comets all-rounder Scott Murn have topped off a stellar 2023/24 summer of cricket taking out top honours at the ACT Cricket Awards tonight.

Cricket ACT celebrated its annual awards at the Hellenic Club in Woden, recognising individual and team performances from the local ACT Premier and Indoor Cricket competitions, along with the High Performance teams, the ACT Meteors and Comets.

Katie Mack received the Bronwyn Calver medal after some superb performances with the bat throughout the Women’s National Cricket League season, which also netted her the ACT Meteors batting award. Mack finished with a tally of 575 runs at an average of 47.1.

With a return to the Toyota National Second XI competition for the ACT Comets this year, it was Scott Murn who ended the season with an impressive 429 runs @71, and the second highest run scorer for the competition. Murn also took a total of 8 wickets @32 earning himself the Peter Solway medal.

Other major award winners were:

  • Billy Floros medal – ACT Rockets Indoor Player of the Year – Matthew Floros
  • DB Robin medal – First Grade Player of the Year – Jake Smith, ANU
  • SJ Moore medal – Women’s Player of the Year – Claire Murray, Eastlake
  • Greg Chappell Cricket Centre T20 Player of the Series – Scott Murn, Western District

The awards night also honoured the impressive playing careers of Kris Britt and Lisle Maloney (dec), who were inducted as 17th and 18th members of the Cricket ACT Hall of Fame.

Kris Britt is a leading ACT cricketer in the modern era who began her career at Western District, playing First Grade cricket and making her debut for the ACT by the age of 13. She made her WNCL debut for South Australia in 2002/2003, played multiple times for Australia, and returned to Captain the ACT Meteors on their entry into the WNCL and the then Australian Women’s Twenty20 Competition in 2009/10.

She played for the Melbourne Renegades in the first three seasons of the Women’s Big Bash League, and continued to play for the ACT until her retirement from the game in the 2016/17 season. She was named in the Cricket ACT Women’s Team of the Century in February 2023.  

Lisle Maloney was one of nine children of one of the original pioneering families in the Canberra region. His father Richard was the patron of the original Ainslie Cricket Club and the sons of the family were well known for the sporting ability, especially in cricket, tennis and rugby. 

He is recognised as one of the all-time leading all-rounders, and is one of only two players in ACT cricket history to have scored a century and taken 5 wickets in an innings, which he did twice. He played 50 matches for the ACT, captaining them eight times.

He scored 1505 runs and taking 61 wickets in a representative career that lasted 16 seasons, only curtailed by World War II.
