Centralian Advocate, Friday, September 21, 2007 59 PU B : C A D V D A T E : 21 -S E P -2 00 7 PA G E : 59 C O L O R : C M Y K SPORT READY TO PLAY: The Brown brothers Rhyan, 15, Ray, 22, and Shaun, 14, are ready for the new baseball season with reigning premier Cubs. Picture: ALLAN WEEKS Moneys on the pitchers Baseball Christopher OLeary CUBS coach Tim Brown is banking on his pitchers to throw his side to glory this season and against Panthers at Lyel Kempster Park tonight. Cubs regained the competition title last April, by annihilating Demons 10-2. Brown said the nucleus of the premiership squad had stayed on for this summer. He also believes Cubs will benefit from having more than their fair share of pitchers. Brown said: We probably have more pitchers than most sides, and we have a young crew as well. That young crew consists of pitchers Robbie Brown, 22, and Jimmy Allen, 22 and Robbie Cheslett, 19. Coach Brown said Robbie provided consistency on the mound. Shaun Brown, he said, was another young talent at the eligible age that could be blooded into senior level. He will also be relying heavily on fellow Browns and premiership players Ray and Jayson. Ray Brown captained the Cubs to victory last season while Jayson is another pitcher in Cubs arsenal. Luke Farrows said he is also returning to Cubs for the season, and coach Brown will hope he can lock in more of the inspirational catches that turned the result of last seasons Grand Final. Cubs and Panthers will kick off the double-header at 7pm, followed by the Redback versus Demons clash at 9pm. Bulls played Venom late last night and a full match report will feature in Tuesdays Centralian Advocate. Hes heads above rest Athletics Christopher OLeary A STAND-OUT: Centralian Nick Heggie. YOUNG giant Nick Heggie dominated his age group, winning a swag of awards at last weekends NT Athletics Championship in Darwin. The 13-year-old runner, one of many Centralian athletes competing, came first in his 100m, 200m, 400m, 800m and 1500m events.

A keen basketballer, Heggie only started running in June last year, but has stood well over 180cm tall since he was 11. He said: I like being free and its easier running than working in a team sport.
