The home at 11 Allambie St, Morayfield sold under the hammer.THE auction of a rundown house in Brisbane’s north was so popular that the winning bidder scored the property while on holiday in Bali.The 1012sq m block in Morayfield at 11 Allambie St was a mortgagee repossession complete with boarded up windows, holes in walls and graffiti throughout, but was structurally sound.Marketing agent Chris Sharvell of Realsales Real Estate said there were 10 registered bidders at the auction with eight actively bidding. The opening bid was $100,000 and 27 bids later a local woman who was on holiday in Bali was the new owner of the renovator’s delight, which sold for $222,000 under the hammer.Mr Sharvell said the new owner lived nearby with her family.More from newsLand grab sees 12 Sandstone Lakes homesites sell in a week21 Jun 2020Tropical haven walking distance from the surf9 Oct 2019“She was keen to buy and even submitted an offer but as this was a mortgagee repossession, it had to go to auction,” he said. “On auction day she was actually on holidays in Bali so she registered beforehand for her brother to bid on her behalf.“He played it cool at the auction but apparently she was on the phone joking that she’d kill him if he didn’t win.”Mr Sharvell said the new owner planned to immediately renovate the home. “It was a good result and it shows the base price of homes in Morayfield has now moved up into that low to mid $200,000s,” he said.Mr Sharvell said the market in Morayfield, like most of Brisbane, had experienced good, steady growth in the past few years. According to CoreLogic, the median house price in Morayfield is $353,500.
Pitching against Northwestern on Feb. 20, Jocelyn Cater struggled to control her pitches. She allowed four walks in as many innings to start the game.To calm her down, catcher Julie Wambold called time and came to the mound.“She’ll come out and say, ‘Hey we’re nervous, take a breath, let’s get past this and get the next one,’” Cater said.Cater retired six straight batters from the end of the fourth to the start of the sixth.While Syracuse (7-8) employs two different catchers, its pitchers tend to throw to the same catcher due to defensive requirements. Sydney O’Hara plays first base when she isn’t pitching, causing a ripple effect that sends Wambold to catch for Cater. When O’Hara does pitch, Wambold is at second to complete the infield, sending Alyssa Dewes behind the plate.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThough head coach Leigh Ross said these changes are merely a product of O’Hara playing first when she doesn’t pitch, the result has paired O’Hara with Dewes in six of her seven starts and Cater with Wambold in six of her eight.“Once you start working with a catcher, you get really comfortable with them,” O’Hara said.O’Hara said she is comfortable with both catchers but she seems happy to be working more with the same one. She and Dewes have been working on staying low, blocking the ball and keeping loose balls in front of Dewes when runners are on base.When she throws with pitching coach Mike Bosch watching, she tends to throw to Dewes.“We’re definitely more comfortable with each other,” Dewes said. “I know what she likes to throw in certain situations, but I feel comfortable catching for both pitchers.”Cater said that the two-catcher rotation is a strength of the team. Cater is left-handed, which Ross said causes the ball to spin differently, and throws a fast rise ball. Both catchers have caught her enough in practice to be comfortable with her.Against Northwestern, Cater said that Wambold is better at reading her and calming her down during games.“I love Julie behind the plate, I really do,” Ross said. “I think she brings a sense of calmness to the team.”Though the pitcher-catcher combinations have so far been a product of the infield’s defensive needs, Ross said that might change when pitcher AnnaMarie Gatti returns from injury.While O’Hara and Cater are rise ball pitchers, Gatti throws a heavy drop ball that cuts down late. Ross said that Wambold is better at framing drop balls as strikes and that she would probably catch for Gatti. The rest of the infield would remain intact with Wambold catching Gatti.In the batter’s box, Wambold and Dewes have been polar opposites this season. Wambold is second on the team in RBI while Dewes is second to last among everyday players in batting average.Wambold’s hitting commands playing time, but Ross said she wouldn’t change the catcher rotation despite Dewes’ struggles, proving the importance of the growing comfort between pitcher and catcher.Said Ross: “Sometimes there is that correlation where a pitcher gets really comfortable with a certain catcher and they bring the best out of that pitcher.” Comments Published on March 3, 2015 at 12:07 am Facebook Twitter Google+
Liam Heffernan’s side beat Burgess by 0-14 to 0-08 in today’s North SHC Final Replay in Nenagh to lift the Frank McGrath Cup.Just like the original game last week, the first half was a slow enough affair, with Nenagh going in 0-05 to 0-03 up at half-time.Midway through the second-half the sides were level on 0-07 apiece, but Nenagh pulled away, thanks in no small part to the efforts of corner-back John Brennan, who was named man-of-the-match.
