‘‘They are great all-rounders and that’s why they have been selected for the team and we are proud to see them represent the region.’’
The duo will be representing every club north of Hervey Bay as part of the Queensland Country team.
Finn and Eliza capped off a fantastic season with being crowned as Under-14s age champions for the Port Douglas club on Saturday afternoon.
The club’s most prestigious award, Nipper of the Year, was presented to Alison Munro whose effort this season saw her win a number of medals at the recent North Australian Championships and earned her a spot on the North Queensland team to contest the state titles next year and a reserve place on the Queensland Country team.
Joining the talented trio in the North Queensland team are Port Douglas teammates Mitchell Knight, Mia Devine-Cameron, Derek Sorensen and Harry Goodman while Jai Hackett and Simon Kramer were named as reserves.
These talented Nippers will be training weekly on the beach and at Mossman Gorge and will visit the cable ski centre in Cairns with their boards in January to prepare for the State Championships in February.
