This year's Girls team has very strong representation from Mount Lawley Golf Club which includes emerging star Hannah Green, Claudia Pisano, Hira Naveed and Nicha Thanissorn.
Green had a stellar 2012 both nationally and internationally highlighted by wins at the Aaron Baddeley Australian Final and the Newman & Brooks 54-hole Tournament. She was also a member of the winning teams that took out the Trans-Tasman Cup and the Women's Interstate Series. Currently Hannah is ranked third in Junior National Amateur Rankings.
Fellow Mount Lawley members Claudia Pisano, Hira Naveed, and Nicha Thanissorn will be joining Green on the team this year. Pisano will be making a return for her second appearance, while Naveed and Thanissorn will be trying to make an impression at their first Interstate Series. Another new face to the team this year is Mandurah's Jessica Whitting.
Alyssa Keir from The Vines Golf and Country Club is no stranger to the team will bring with her some valuable experience as she makes her third appearance. Keir had a great Interstate Series in 2012 going undefeated.
The Girls are considered one of the favourites going into the series and have their sights set on bringing home the cup which they narrowly missed out on last year finishing 2nd to Queensland.
