Bio

One of the senior players in the Queensland Fire squad, the Brisbane teacher has proved an outstanding team player through her career.

She has also been a strong performer for Queensland at national championships in indoor cricket in recent years.

A Queensland Under-17 and Under-19 representative, Short was a member of the Queensland Under-17 team that won the national title in 2003-04. She has also represented Queensland at youth level in volleyball and softball.

Short comes from a sporting family, with her mother representing Australia at softball and her grandfather Mick Harvey playing first-class cricket for Victoria and Queensland before coming a first-class umpire.

The Queenslander has been dynamic in the field, both in the air and on the ground.

Short took over the captaincy mid-way through the 2016-17 season and will continue on in that role in 2017-18.
