SARAH Baldwin will create a piece of Bendigo Thunder history on Sunday when she becomes the first to play 50 games for the club.

Baldwin will notch the milestone when the Thunder takes on Melbourne Uni.

“Sarah has been with the club since inception and while it is a notable achievement for her, it shows that as a club we’re starting to get some experience in the side,” Thunder coach Russell Jeffrey said.

“As we continue to gain experience, we expect our on-field performances to improve.

“This week we welcome back Emma Wolters and Tish Stewart, who are two of our most experienced players.”

The Thunder had the bye last week, but before that narrowly fell short of winning their first quarter of the season in the last term against St Albans.

“Our second half against St Albans was our best of the season and we pressed hard to win our first quarter of the year,” Jeffrey said.

“The girls are continuing to work hard to improve.”

Melbourne Uni is third on the ladder.

Sunday's game at Melbourne Uni Main Oval starts at 2pm.
