Nationals roundup

The 2014 NDFC Adult National Championships took place in Halifax. With a report from Nationals, here's SDA President Pat Copeman:

"The Nationals started on Tuesday June 10 with the Men's and Ladies' Doubles events. Unfortunately we had only one Doubles team advance to the knockout round - Cathy Kerrigan and Bonnie Lapierre achieved a joint 5th finish in this event.

"On Wednesday the Men's and Ladies' Singles events took place. Again it was our women who advanced to the knockout round. Cathy Kerrigan and Joan Hodgen finished joint 17th and Bonnie Lapierre finished in the joint 9th position.

Team Saskatchewan are pictured in the official team photo taken June 10:

Back row (L-R): Cathy Kerrigan, Danny Mckenzie, Jim Dennis, John Brann, Karsten Larsen, Ken Friesen, Alex Parnitsky, Eric Matheson, Curt Gamble, Dorothy Zimmer (alt). Front row (L-R): Pat Copeman (SDA President), Judy Cleaveley, Aspen Cleaveley, Bonnie Lapierre, Stacey Saccucci, Carol Shepherd, Joan Hodgen, Sherry Hingtgen.

"On Thursday the Mixed Doubles event was played. Cathy Kerrigan and Danny McKenzie were eliminated in a playoff.

"Friday was the Nodor Cup event. Our Ladies' team (pictured) got joint 3rd in this event.

"While the team remained in 8th spot in the Canada Cup standings we did increase our point count by 17 points. I look forward to a further increase in total points for next year." - Pat Copeman

Thanks Pat and well done to all our competitors!

In other results, Cathy Kerrigan partnered up with Mandy Fleck of B.C. to win the ladies' doubles at the Canadian Open. Nice job! That's Mandy and Cathy on the right.

In the pre-tournament East Coast Open, Jim Dennis reached the final, finishing second to Dave Cameron of Nova Scotia. They're pictured left. Carol Shepherd came joint ninth in the ladies' event.

Full results from Nationals are posted here by the NDFC.

Saskatchewan youth Ashtin Bear wins National championship

Ashtin Bear of Prince Albert won the NDFC National Senior Boys' championship in Halifax May 17, defeating Dawson Murschell of Alberta in the final 3-1. Ashtin, pictured right, took out a 72 finish to win the gold. After his victory he said "I can't believe I won," later saying that it is "a dream come true." What better way to end his final year as a youth player! Congratulations Ashtin!

Dakota Roberts, also from Prince Albert, came second in senior girls, losing to Raina Burke of Newfoundland in the final 3-2. The match went down to the final double.

A day earlier, Dakota and her partner Randi Friess finished second in senior girls' doubles, then on Day 3, Ashtin and Dakota teamed up to finish second in mixed doubles, bringing Dakota her third silver and the team's total medal count to a gold, three silvers and a bronze.

Youth team start strong in Halifax

In doubles play on May 16, the first day of national competition, Saskatchewan girls got off to a flyer!

Randi Friess (Nipawin, far left) and Dakota Roberts (Prince Albert, near left) made the final in Senior Girls and won the silver medal. The stage match was very close, with Dakota wiring a double she needed to win the fifth and final game against Newfoundland and Labrador. Congratulations on a great result!

Junior Girls Savanah Solomon and Rianna December got to the semis and finish with a bronze medal for joint third.

The juniors are pictured right. Savanah (Regina, L) says she and Rianna (Saskatoon, R) "played pretty good together." She had to help rookie Rianna with what to shoot for sometimes but it seems to have worked out! Savanah says "we would encourage each other a lot."

Savanah enjoyed her first time at Nationals. "It's really fun. You get to meet a lot of different people from different places and become friends with them. It's a great experience."

Rianna was also a first-time competitor at Nationals. She says "Oh yeah, I would do this again!"

SDA Provincial Youth Director Trish Gray says "the senior girls played an awesome stage set. I am super proud," and that for the juniors, third place is a "sweet" result in their first year. Trish says the boys' teams missed out (May 16), but not for a lack of good darts.

In other notable results, Saul Arndt of Regina finished second in the pre-tournament Bursary shoot and second again in the World Masters qualifier. Our overall finish in the Canada Cup was fifth. Full results will be posted by the NDFC.WH

Let's wish them all the best for their two-year terms.

A sport for the ages

A reminder that darts is truly a universal sport - contestants in our adult provincials ranged from 19 to 83 years of age.

(L-R) Cliff Culbert (Hodgeville), Finn Petersen (Saskatoon), Moff Kay (Kindersley) and Earl Stirling-Brown (Nipawin) competed in the three-day event. Looking good fellas! The combined score in years of these gentlemen is an amazing 295. For the record our senior shooter is Finn. WH

Hammer nails Event, Jeff repeats in men's

Bonnie "The Hammer" Lapierre pounded home some telling darts to take the women's singles and a nice $500 prize at the Main Event held April 5-7 at Saskatoon. Reginan Bonnie (near left) defeated NDFC star Cindy Hayhurst of Alberta (far left) in the final and regains the title she last won in 2012.

Over in the men's singles Jeff Howard of Alberta took first place from a field of 59 men and earns a cool $1,000. He's on the right of the picture with runner up Dave Cameron.

Here's a report from Saskatoon organizer Elaine Walker:

"This yearís Main Event was a great success. I want to thank the sponsors, the set-up crew and all the volunteers that helped make it another successful tournament.

"I would like to congratulate Jeff Howard for his win in the Menís singles. Jeff repeated his win from last year, a pretty tough thing to do as the calibre of men at the tournament was second to none. He beat Dave Cameron in the ninth and final game. I must say that Dave is a true ambassador to the sport of darts. I would also like to congratulate our own SK men who held their own. We had 18 men in the top 32. Way to go guys. Karsten Larsen and Wayne Hudson of Saskatoon finished the highest at joint 5th.

"As for the ladies our own Bonnie Lapierre took the ladies' crown defeating Cindy Hayhurst in four straight. Way to go Bonnie, we are so proud of you. We had 9 SK Ladies in the top 16. Great job to all. Till next year..."

- Elaine Walker

Classic doubles for Jason and Judy

Jason Skinner of Battleford and Judy Cleaveley of Hudson Bay both made it two for two at the Northern Classic in Prince Albert February 8-9.

Jason beat Danny McKenzie of Stanley Mission in the singles final, and then partnered up with Damian Riceof Lloydminster to take the doubles over McKenzie and his partner, local star Rod Swenson. Jason says "it was great darts."

2014 Blizzard

The annual Blizzard dart tournament was held in Regina January 18. We have the following report from SDA President Pat Copeman:

"If there isn't a blizzard on the weekend of the "Blizzard" they will come, and by the end of the day it was evident that the Collinses from Medicine Hat came to play and to win.

Scott Collins bested Moose Jaw's Curt Gamble in the Men's singles final. Joint thirds in this event were John Brann (Regina) and Scott Lemoine (Alberta). Scott and his partner, Rob Kochie, also won the Men's doubles event taking out Moose Jaw Zone's Cliff Culbert and Jesee Gamble. Joint thirds were Jim Dennis and Trevor Gilchrist (Regina) and Deon Grandy and Dawson Murschell (Alberta).

On the ladies' side Regina's Bonnie Lapierre and her partner Sherry Hingtgen won the doubles event over Judy Cleaveley (Hudson Bay) and Joan Hodgen (Midale). Joint thirds were Shauna Collins and Leslie Kochie (Alberta) and Trish Gray (Rosetown) and Dakota Roberts (Prince Albert).

Shauna Collins obviously used the doubles event as a warm-up for singles as she went on to win the Ladies' singles event, besting Regina's Becky Arndt in the final. Joint thirds in Ladies' singles went to Judy Cleaveley and Joan Hodgen.

Thank you to all of you who attended the tournament.

Thanks, as well, to Bryce Van Loosen, manager of the German Club, for the great job he did of putting up the dart boards." - Pat Copeman

 2014 Youth Classic

We have the following report from SDA Youth Director Trish Gray:

And the awards went to: 

  "The  Youth Classic 2014 was held January 11th at the Anavets Club in Saskatoon. 

Twelve youth players from across the province attended and participated in a Blind Doubles draw, and then singles were played for each of the respective categories, Junior and Senior, Boys and Girls. It was a pleasure to see some new faces that took advantage of this tournament for tips and strategies on the game. 

  Once again many thanks to the parents and the numerous volunteers that gave their time to help make this an enjoyable day for the youth players. Your continued support is what will make youth darts a success.    -Trish
