Kate Peterson is from the class of 2020, the year that COVID changed the world. For Kate this meant completing her last HSC examination and travelling straight into a bio-security bubble with the Sydney Thunder WBBL team at Sydney Olympic Park. As a result Kate missed her Valedictory Dinner. Three years later this sacrifice has paid off.

Kate is now a remarkable cricketer who is making a significant impact on the world of womens cricket. In the 2022/ 23 season Kate jumped at the chance to play for the Sydney Sixers in the Women's Big Bash League Twenty Twenty cricket.  Kate is currently playing for the South Australian Scorpions in the Women's National Cricket League where she is excelling as a swing bowler. Her best figures being 5-34 against Queensland in 2022/23 season which helped the Scorpions secure a 94 run win. 

Kate is combining her cricket commitments with studying a Physiotherapy degree. It was during a lecture that she received a call from the national women's selector informing Kate that she had been chosen in the Australa A T20 side to play against England in the 2023 Women's ashes series. 

Kate is currently enjoying playing cricket but has dreams beyond the cricket pitch and into the Olympic arena. At school Kate regularily represented the College at Combined Independent Schools Athletics events and triathalons. Kate excelled in Javelin throwing, just missing out on the national top 10 when competing for NSW at the Under 20 championships in 2020. With the Brisbane Olympics taking place in 2032 Kate isn't ruling out switching from cricket to athletics to compete for Australia in the greatest sporting event on earth. 

Kate's motto is 'never say never'. We congratulate Kate on being inducted into the William Clarke College SPorts Wall of Fame and look forward to hearing about her endeavours in the future.
