TENNIS: Gladstone's Daniel Cooke helped steer Central to win the Ken Hick and Murray Whitebread Trophy in Rockhampton in the Queensland Junior Development Series finals.
It further enhances the reputation of the Gladstone Tennis and Squash Centre as a training and competition base for the port city's more promising players.
Daniel was in the 17-and-under category and was joined by fellow Central Queensland players Lachlan Vickery and Chelsea May, both in the 15-and-under age bracket.
Ratzi Mabukwa won the 11-and-under girls' category for Central.
