Ten in line for national duties


ROCKHAMPTON'S Seunghwan Lee has rolled onto the national inline hockey stage.

Lee added his first Queensland selection to his gold medal won at the Skate Queensland 2006 State Championships at Rockhampton's CQ Community Sports Centre yesterday.

Playing for the Rocky Raiders 10 years-and-under team, Lee helped the host region to gold medal success, despite a 75 loss to Cairns in their final game yesterday.

The Rocky Raiders 16 yearsand-under team also joined the State medal winners after a 4-1 win over Cairns in their bronze medal playoff.

Rockhampton's Luke Muller, Callan Murphy and Sasky Stewart had more reasons to celebrate after winning selection in the Queensland team for this year's nationals.

The host region dominated selection in the Queensland 21 years-and-under team, with Shaun Russell, Scott Muller, Vincent Kemp and Brenton O'Sullivan all in line for Australian honours.

In the senior division, Rockhampton's Mark Russell and Gareth Entwistle gained Queensland selection.

Defending champions Durack from Brisbane were crowned senior champions in yesterday's final after a 7-5 win over Rinkrats.

This year's nationals are in Sydney in September.
