Early Friday morning our youth from across the Nation marched into the 2013 National Darts Championships bestowed by local dignitaries welcoming them to this most prestigious event. You could feel the excitement growing as the throw of the 3 darts marking the games as open was the lead way into these top competitors all looking for a shot at the national titles.
Kicking off Day 1 was the Doubles Championships in all 4 categories. The knock-out rounds saw numerous provinces from east & west come out of their sections to the sudden elimination. The competition was tough with many matches going the distance to the deciding leg but today Team Ontario proudly waved their flag high as they won 3 of the 4 events:
Junior Girls Doubles Champions - Casey Rhynold & Latressa Skrzvniak - Ontario
Junior Boys Doubles Champions - Denvor Jones & Dillion Wall - Ontario
Senior Girls Doubles Champions - Kaitlyn Saunders & Oceana Watson - Ontario
However; in the Senior Boys Doubles event, Team Alberta had plans of their own. The host province team (Newfoundland & Labrador) met Team New Brunswick in their semis to take the match 3-1 to step to the oche against Team Alberta who dashed the hopes of a sweep on day 1 for Team Ontario. Alberta continued their roll taking home their first gold with a 3-0 score line over the home town boys.
Senior Boys Doubles Champions - Nikolas McNair & Dawson Murschell - Alberta
