Maxine Thomas and Dick Hainey, two of the oldest competitors in the field at 91, were among the high scorers in the 2018 NW District Senior Olympics Darts event (Saturday) April 21 at Knights of Columbus Hall in Bossier City.

Thomas, a perennial visitor with the Road Warriors from Union Parish, finished with the second best score of the day (159) among all competitors. Paula Hadwin posted a 165, the best mark of the day, among females ages 55-69.

Hainey, who dates back to the late 1990s in Senior Olympics competition, had the best overall score (131) among male competitors, in the 80-plus age bracket. Gary Price was right on his heels in the same age bracket with a 121. Throwing in the 50-59 age division, Johnny Lonadier posted a 120 score.

Thomas and Hainey have one thing in common. They have both medaled in a much more strenuous endeavor, shot put, in track and field in the past.
