POOLER, GA (WTOC) - She was right on target when she lined up in front of a dart board a few weeks ago. And Kim Collins hit the bullseye enroute to a national championship!
Collins competed in the 2009 Masters National and came in first to claim her first national championship. 23 women competed in the competition and Collins was #1. She'll represent the United States in teh Winmau World Masters in England as a part of the World Cup Team.
This is the first time since 1994 that our region will be represented in the World Masters and the first time ever that a female will be competiting.
Collins graduated from South Effingham in 2001 and has been playing darts since she was 17 years old. She said she picked up the game for fun and then realized just how far she can take her game.
This weekend, Kim is competing at the 29th annual Savannah Open Darts Competition in Pooler. It's a good chance for her to fine tune her game and compete with some old acquaintances.
"We have alot of fun, getting together with people you don't see but four or five times a year." she says, "So it's fun, I did play this morning with Payton in mixed doubles, then I'll play with the lady in ladies doubles. All weekend you have the different events. Then you play singles by yourself, and then you have the luck of the draw at night so everybody can just have fun."
The World Cup will take place in Bridlington, England in September. (article source...)
