Fiona Plummer’s eventual induction into the Australian Eightball Hall of Fame on Saturday night may have just about tested the emotions –and lifted her spirits.

“I didn’t know,” she said, “so I was very shocked, but it was a nice surprise.”

The Launceston veteran’smind had until the past week been elsewhere.

The 48-year-oldhad spent most of the year fightingagainst breast cancer.

Plummerwas only given the all clear to resume playing six weeks out from this month’sAustralian eightball championships.

“It’s been a tough year since I was diagnosed with breast cancer back in March.So generally, I have been battling the radiation and the operation,” she said.

“Tocome out with this at the end of it, after everything I’ve put in and achieved over the years, andthen you sort of get bad, you reflect a little bit different on life.

“It’s nice to have something recognised for what you’ve done over the years.”

Tasmanian 2007 Hall-of-FamerAndrew Saltmarsh said Plummer had been a most deserving recipient.

But the honour was held off a “year or two” until it could be presented to Plummer in front of her home supporters in Launceston.

Plummer is now one of 17 members into the sport’sHall of Fame since2003, whileits sixth female is the first new inducteefor three years.

She said competing this past week against rivals she calls friends has been tough given her health scare.

“It’s been more mental rather than physical, so I was prepared, but obviously not as good as if I didn’t have it,” Plummer said.

“But mentally it has been draining, but I suppose it has given me that extra focus.”

The awards presentation night also included naming the Australian teams, as the men and women attempt to retain their 2016 World championship titles.

Hobart’sJeremy McGuire was the only Tasmanian in the men’s team.

Penguin’s Cale Barrett was selected for the national under-23 team, while Devonport’sWayne Stubbs headlined made the masters’ team after being named its player of the carnival.
