As Maddie Penna raised her bat to mark her maiden WNCL ton, tears flew down her teammate Katie Mack's face.
At first the ACT Meteors batter thought, "oh my god, that is so weird." But then it hit her.
It was the accumulation of just how far she's come in recent years, having risen above an injury setback and performed well in her first fully-contracted season.
"I was actually quite sweet. I've had a bit of a tough year and it's nice for the girls to have my back," Penna said.
The 20-year-old rising star scored an unbeaten 118 from 100 deliveries, propelling the Meteors to a 64-run win over Western Australia last week.
Jono Dean's outfit is looking to build on that performance and finish their campaign on a high, with the Meteors closing out their season against the SA Scorpions in Adelaide on Sunday.
A Meteors victory would spoil South Australia's hopes of advancing to finals, as they sit three points behind the Queensland Fire at fifth.

"It's always nice going into another game with confidence, knowing that you scored runs in the game beforehand," Penna said.
"I'm looking forward to it and hopefully we can finish with a win. It would be nice to knock SA out of finals contention as well.
"They're a really good squad. Bridget Patterson has been scoring a lot of runs lately, so hopefully we can get her out nice and early, then come away with a win."
It will mark Mack's 50th match, an impressive milestone given the length of each WNCL season.
Mack launch her Meteors career in 2013, when she was only 19 years old and still lived in Sydney.
But as the women's game has grown, so too has Mack and the Meteors - with the entire squad now based in Canberra and open to more cricket opportunities.
"It's pretty special, I forgot it was happening because so many things have been going on this season. It's nice to finish it off in a positive way," Mack said.
"It's come a long way. When I first started playing for the ACT I was still in Sydney, the program itself has come a long way. Now everyone is living in Canberra, we're training during the day - even last year we were stuck training at nights in the freezing winter.
"It's very special to bring [the 50th] up in these colours and with girls I've played with for a number of years.
"The women's game in general has gone so far, and I've gone with it."
Mack is in strong form this season and has scored 323 runs so far - which is the third highest in the competition.
"I'd like to think every year I've gotten better. I think this year, it's been able to have the right mindset - what works best in terms about how I go about my game rather than the skill itself," Mack said.
"I think that's the difference with the women's game. It's getting better every year."
Sunday: SA Scorpions v ACT Meteors at Karen Rolton Oval, Adelaide, 3pm.
