Trish Gray sends us more in this report:

“Another Canadian Youth Nationals has come to an end. As usual the youth players representing our province competed well and made us all proud. In the Canada Cup results, Saskatchewan were 4th place with 68 points (3rd – Manitoba 69, 2nd – Alberta 71,1st – Ontario 92) It was very close between 2nd and 4th.An excellent event. Even though the medals and trophies did not reflect how well each individual played, it was a tough field out there this year. Each player represented Saskatchewan with the sportsmanship and level of play of any pro, making each one of them winners! I am very proud of the whole team. It is with sadness that we say goodbye to Miranda Cleaveley, who is graduating out of the youth program this year. Best of luck in your future in Adult Darts.”
