Polocrosse titles

THE Southern Downs has six of the seven players in the Queensland women’s polocrosse team to contest the nationals at Ballarat, Victoria next week.

Yesterday, Warwick player Trish Barlow loaded her two horses, Sally and Jill, for the trip to Ballarat.

Her Warwick team-mates in the state women’s team are Stephanie Thorsby, Katie Jolly, Katie Barr and Sally McGrath.

Melissa Kerr, of Stanthorpe, who plays with the Cunningham club, is also in the team.

Barlow represented South Australia in three nationals before moving to Queensland four years ago.

She played in the Queensland mixed team two years ago and has been promoted to the women’s team this year.

Barlow and Queensland under-21 coach Charlie Brook left with four horses yesterday and planned overnight stop overs at Goondiwindi, Dubbo and Deliniquin.

Most of the Southern Downs players in state teams have already left for Ballarat with their horses.

One of the youngest is Anthony O’Leary, of the Cunningham club, who will play in the State U12 team in an exhibition game.
