It?s our deadly darts dozen
BILOELA youngsters Kayla Kennedy, 16, and Kerri-Anne Keegan, 15, are among a dozen of our best darts players to go to the State titles following stellar performances in the Central Queensland championships at the weekend.
The pair was among six to be selected in the division eight ladies team, joining Linda Kingston, Kathy Stebhens, Pare-one Matson and Barbara Harmsworth on the trek to Mt Isa.
Former Australian representative Allen Kingston made the final cut for the men's team of six. He will compete alongside Glen Donaghay, Greg Rideout, Les Ahman, Clifford Kittson and Wayne Wilson.
The players took out the top six places in a field of 12 in each division on Sunday at Kalka Shades Hockey Club.
They will set off for the State titles on June 9 before returning (hopefully triumphant) on June 13.
Zone eight secretary Mary Anne Murphy said the teams were eagerly awaiting the titles.
"We're all looking forward to them with great anticipation, it's the only time we all get to meet up,'' she said.
She predicted the team would perform well at the competition but admitted it would face some difficult opponents: "I think they will do fairly well but there are some strong teams from across Queensland competing .?.?. they will give it their hardest.
