Seven of the 12 Tasmanians named to the state team for this year's Australian National Championships are from the North.
Five Cavaliers and two Northern Hawks will represent Tasmania at the championships, scheduled for September 13-19 at Traralgon, Victoria.
The Cavs' selections are bolstered newcomers Bec Hyland (Kingston) and Hannah Lenthall (Hawks), who have helped make up the side's stingy defence.

They're joined by teammates and offensive notables Shelby Miller, Zoe Claridge and Hayley McDougall. The Hawks add their own shooting stalwart in Ashlea Mawer, as well as athletic centre Jamie Symons.
Hawks veteran Danni Pickett was originally short-listed for the team a few months ago, but due to her season-ending Achilles injury will not be able to play.
Tasmania Magpies coach Jon Fletcher will coach the team.
