White keeps busy holiday schedule



? THERE was little rest for Rockhampton cricket all rounder Preston White during his school holidays.

White returned to Emmaus College this week after spending most of his holidays in Brisbane.

It all started with a Queensland indigenous cricket training camp, representing the Central Queensland under-16 team at the State titles, playing for Emmaus at the Christian Broth- ers Cricket Week carnival and last week he represented the Queensland under-16 team in a carnival in Brisbane.

White opened his campaign for the Queensland under-16 team, at Northgate, with a 43run innings in his team's win over the North Queensland under-17's on the opening day.

Former Rockhampton player Shaun Kelly, now based in Brisbane, also represented the Queensland team and made 20 runs in the opening match before being run out by White.

Joining the North Queensland under-17 team was Gladstone spin bowler Rowan Murray.

White made an unbeaten 60 runs in his team's win over an under-16 invitational side and 30 runs in Queensland's loss to South Queensland.

Queensland coach Sean Toovey, of Rockhampton, said White had a lot of ability.

"It now depends on how hard he wants to work, there's a lot of talented players out there,'' Toovey said.
