They?re talented and determined

DETERMINATION and natural sporting talent are two attributes that sum up The Morning Bulletin 2005 Senior and Junior Sport Stars for the month of May.

Promising Rockhampton rugby league player Tyron Haynes is The Morning Bulletin/CHR Senior Sport Star for May after representing the Queensland under19 team against NSW.

Rockhampton sporting allrounder Lara Napier picked up The Morning Bulletin/Frenchville Sports Club Junior Sports Star for May award.

Napier, who is in Canberra this week for national secondary schools basketball duties, dominated the Queensland Trampoline Championships, winning two gold and silver medals.

She returned from success at the Australian Trampoline Championships, and while on the cross-country track, Napier was crowned Rockhampton and District 14 years girls' champion.

Haynes was a popular choice in the seniors when he joined Queensland's impressive 42-12 win over NSW in the curtainraiser to the State of Origin series opener at Suncorp Stadium.

Haynes, who has attracted the interest of several NRL clubs, has made his Queensland Cup debut for the Central Comets and will line-up against Easts this weekend.

Other high achievers during May were junior soccer stars Joshua Goodsall and Jordan Austin, and another rugby league talent, Jacob Murphy.

Nominations for sporting achievements during the month of June close on Monday.
