Club's membership riding high

EMERALD Polocrosse Club spokeswoman Ariana Corkill had good reason to feel confident for this weekend’s regional carnival in Emerald.

The club’s playing contingent was bursting at the seams with its highest membership increase since it began in 1998.

Already the club has claimed wins in Alton Downs and Bauhinia across a number of divisions. Emerald’s chances have improved again with the latest influx of eager polocrosse players.

Corkill said Emerald’s representative players were also quickly making a name for themselves.

Jake Spreadborough, Nick Gleeson, Marty Gleeson, Kevin Wilson and Trent Brickley have been chosen to represent the Capricornia zone at the Zone Championship in Cunningham.

In the individual standings Danica O’Sullivan was leaving competitors in her dust, claiming the Best Horse and Rider Combination prize at two separate carnivals this season.

Teams from as far as Warwick, Monto, Tambo and St Lawrence were expected to attend the Emerald carnival on Saturday and Sunday at the Emerald racecourse.

All eyes will be fixed on the upcoming Queensland State Championships at Chinchilla in early September.
