The 2013 Youth Nationals Report
Jaret Dion - 2013 National Youth Junior Champion
Alicia Looker placed first in the World Cup Qualifier and will represent Canada at the World Cup in October in St. John's, Newfoundland.
Silver medalists in the NODOR CUP
Junior Girls (Alicia Looker/Sydney Kirkpatrick-Wall)
Finished in a tie for the 4th and final playoff spot. Had a playoff for that spot and won to get into the knock out.
Alicia and Sydney dominated the first 2 legs of the best of 5 semi final going up 2 to 0, and missing multiple chances at doubles to close out the match and move on to the stage and finals. Great showing and finishing Joint 3rd.
Junior Boys (Jaret Dion/Tyle Wolejszo)
These boys zipped through their round robin finishing 2nd in the division and moved on to the semi finals against Team Ontario. Team Ontario clearly had hit their stride and defeated our boys 3-0. Then went on to the finals and Ontario was crowned Canadian Champions defeating Alberta 3-0 in the final.
Fantastic darts from our little men, finishing Joint 3rd also.
Senior Girls (Caroline Arnold/Tandra Lepine)
Play some cracker darts just missing out on coming out of their section by 1 match. Great playing girls.
Senior Boys (Coel Lepine/Dillon Clarke)
The senior boys doubles division was the tightest section I have ever seen. There was a 5 way tie for first through 5th, and our boys could of been in that playoff if they had won their last 2 matches. They went 1 and 1 in their last 2 to miss out on an already epic playoff. If they had jointed the playoff it would of been all the more epic.
Our goal every year is to build on previous years and this year we are on the right track. We are 5 Canada Cup points ahead of last years pace.
I want to say these kids played unbelievable but I have watched these kids play for several years now and it is totally believable.
Alicia Looker finished Joint 3rd in the Junior Girls Bursary shoot
Dillon Clarke also finished Joint 3rd in the Senior Boys Bursary Shoot.
Coel Lepine was up 2-0 in the finals of the Senior Boys Bursary Shoot and just couldn't close out the match finishing 2nd.
Jaret Dion totally dominated the Junior Boy Bursary Shoot finishing 1st place
Coel has won a bursary worth $100 and
Jaret has won his bursary worth $200.
I must say we look great and are playing great.

Alicia finished 2nd in her section and lost in the semi finals finishing Joint 3rd
Caroline finished 4th in her section which moved her on to the knockout finishing Joint 5th
Tandra played fantastic just missing a playoff for last spot by one.

Dillon finished first in his section only losing 1 match, but was unlucky in the first round finishing Joint 5th.

Bye first round
Quarter Finals VS Nova Scotia (Manitoba wins 4-3)
Semi Finals VS Quebec (Manitoba Wins 5-2)
Finals vs. Ontario (Ontario Wins 5-2)
Manitoba wins Silver in the NODOR Cup
Mixed Doubles - I think we were pretty exhausted and we did not come out with our best.
World Masters Qualifier again we did not find our 5th or 6th wind.
The overall points race called The "Canada Cup" - Manitoba's Youth improved tremendously from last years 6th place finish and 53 points to an impressive total of 69 points giving Manitoba the Bronze medal and an over all finish of 3rd. Only 2 pts out of second and the Silver. Alberta edged us out with 71 points.
Most of them but not all of them will have the opportunity to play for Manitoba's Youth team again next year and I look forward to do this all again.
One of them will not be able to join us, as Tandra Lepine will graduate to the adult ranks.
I'd like to thank Tandra for representing Manitoba for many years and wish her luck in her future endevours. I hope she continues playing darts and with practise and hard work she can make her way onto Manitoba's Adult Team.
I just want to add that what an honor and pleasure it was and is working with this group of kids and want to congratulate them all on a great performance.
Manitoba not only played great we looked great!!
A special congratulations goes to Jaret Dion on winning the Junior Boys Singles title and also Alicia Looker on winning the female spot on Team Canada and the opportunity to represent her country at the World Cup of Darts right back in St. John's Newfoundland in October.

World Dart Record Set by Manitoba Player Cory Tkach RECLAIMED
According to the Guinness Book of World Records the world record for bulls scored by one player in one minute is 7. Rory Orvis managed to throw a total of 16 bulls in one minute at the 2012 Manitoba Open. However, in July 2012, a British dart player broke the record by throwing 21 bulls in one minute. Then Cory Tkach broke that record at the 2012 Lac du Bonnet Open by throwing 23 bulls in one minute!! It's an impressive record that will probably stand for a while.
World Dart Record By Two Manitoba Players Most Bullseyes by Two Dart Players in Two Minutes
According to the 2006 Guinness Book of World Records the world record for bulls scored by two players in two minutes is 21. Stan Milosevic and Larry Caruk (both MDAI members), in 2010, managed to break the record by throwing 22 bulls in two minutes. Then at the 2011 Winnipeg Open Rory Orvis and Edward Kapaw-an (both MDAI members) broke the record by throwing 25 bulls. Then a few days later two darts players from Hull, Quebec - Christopher Case and Nick Raizenne - smashed the record with 38 bulls. That record stood for a couple of months until Edward and Rory, at the 2012 Memorial, did it again and reclaimed the record with an astonishing 40 bullseyes. But the two Quebec players came back in May 2012 with a record of 41 bullseyes. Then, just a couple of weeks later Cory Tkach and Rory Orvis broke the record again with an astonishing 43 bulls. See the video below.
