A to Z of Coast Sport A is for ASHLEY: There's rumours floating about that the Australian cricket selectors are thinking about introducing a rotation system for our 25 contracted players.
Maybe Pelican Water's Ashley Noffke will finally get that elusive baggy green. B is for BEN: It's likely Cronulla prop Ben Ross's wish list to Santa would have read something like this (a) no injuries, (b) no lengthy NRL suspensions and (c) none of my cars to be damaged or stolen. Good luck, big fella. C is for CLINT: The Coast's greatest Olympian and his wife, Sarah, welcomed their first child, daughter Charlotte Sophie, into the world on December 20. No doubt she'll be signed up for nippers in a few years' time, dreaming of winning a gold medal like her old man. D is for DEBUTANTS: Three Sunshine Coast footballing youngsters made their debut on the big stage this year Rhys Magin (Essendon) and Sam Reid (Bulldogs) in the AFL, and Jake Friend (Roosters) in the NRL. Hopefully they can establish themselves in their respective teams in 2009. E is for EXCELLENT: Once again the running of the Australian PGA Championship, at the Hyatt Regency in December, was top notch. It looks like Australian Open winner Tim Clark will be heading back to Coolum next year, and hopefully where can you buy ray ban sunglasses a few more international stars will follow suit. F is for FIRE: The Sunshine Coast Fire won this year's premiership championship double in ray ban rb4068 football's inaugural Queensland State League competition. Now that it is the team everyone wants to beat, it will be tougher this time around but we're backing our boys ray ban official in. G is for GEMMA: Mooloolaba lifesaver Gemma Newbiggin was the only Sunshine Coaster to win automatic entry into this summer's Kellogg's Nutri Grain Series, after a strong showing in 2008. A star on the rise. H is for HULL: Before the 2008 golf season started, few would have known Sunrise Beach's Katherine Hull if they fell over her. More recently she was getting baled up by Channel 10 for interviews while taking in the action at the Australian PGA. Hopefully there's at least one more win to go with her Canadian Open title from this year, and a top 10 ranking at the end of the LPGA season. I ray ban shades for sale is for INJURY: The dreaded "I" word came to bite many of our athletes' campaigns this year, including those of surfer Julian Wilson, Brisbane Lions star Josh Drummond and cricketer Ashley Noffke. Touch wood, they enjoy a year without any time on the sidelines. J is for JESUS: Who many of us will be praying to in order to get our favourite football teams over the line next year. For the record, go Collingwood and Canberra. K is for KENYON: Hull will have some home grown company on the LPGA circuit next year, with Caloundra's Sarah Jane Kenyon winning a full card. Kenyon was a standout when posing for a women's golf calendar a while back now she's hoping to do the same against Ochoa, Creamer and company. L is for LOSING STREAK: That's what the Maroochydore Clippers men's side experienced in the QABL this year, failing to win a match in the competition. In their defence, it was always going to be hard to replace class basketballers such as Zane Meehl and John Fitzgerald. M is for MELANIE: She won relay gold and bronze in Beijing now swimmer Melanie Schlanger has begun a four year campaign to secure individual glory at London in 2012. N is for NOOSA: The Noosa Pirates looked gone in the first half of the local rugby league season, but came home like a freight train to win a third straight premiership. Can Noel Goldthorpe and company make it four on the trot next year? O is for OGILVY: Geoff Ogilvy finally got the "never won in Australia" monkey off his back with his victory in the Australian PGA this year. Now Adam Scott will have to answer that annoying question if he decides to turn up, that is. P is for POTENTIAL: We've got plenty of junior surfers who possess that quality, so hopefully one of them can make their mark next year. Q is for QUEENSLAND CUP: The Sunshine Coast Sea Eagles will play Redcliffe in their Queensland Cup debut at Stockland Park in March. Hopefully with the influx of some quality playing talent from NRL premiers Manly, our team can enjoy immediate success under coach Brandon Costin. R is for ROCKER: He's scored four goals in the past two grand finals to help Buderim to premiership glory in the Caloundra RSL Cup. Here's hoping striker Scott Rocker can carry that sort of form on to the park for the Sunshine Coast Fire. S is for STINGRAYS: It remains to be seen how many games big name recruits Morgan Turinui and Daniel Braid play for the Sunshine Coast's Premier Rugby team next year. After a much improved campaign in 2008, Glen Panoho's boys have their sights set on a maiden finals berth. T is for TURNSTILES: They'll be clicking (hypothetically at least, you need a stadium to have them) at Stockland Park when the Brisbane Broncos play the Melbourne Storm in a NRL trial on February 28. Standing room only. U is for UNIVERSITY: The Barbarians secured their second straight local rugby union premiership with a win over Noosa in the grand final, and look set to create a dynasty similar to that the Dolphins have enjoyed. Will start unbackable favourites to defend their RJW Gas Services Cup crown. V is for VERMEULEN: A podium finish here or there, but no wins for Yandina flier Chris Vermeulen in MotoGP this year. He has secured his future, however, having signed a new deal with Suzuki. Here's hoping a second career win is on the agenda later next year. W is for WANDERERS: Buderim has won the last two local football premierships, both against Maroochydore. With colourful coach Alex Murphy in charge, they're every chance to do it again. Once again the Swans and NYU will probably be their main threats. X is for X FACTOR: The Maroochy Northshore Roos will have one in next year's Pineapple Hotel Cup, in the form of former Sydney Swans premiership player Ben Mathews.
Y is for YESTERDAY: When the Sunshine Coast sports community needs a stadium to call their own. Z is for DZUFER: OK, we cheated a bit on this one. Hopefully Daniel Dzufer will crack a regular position in the Brisbane Lions' line up under new coach Michael Voss.
