FOR a male dominated sport, these two Gladstone girls sure are dominating motocross.

Gladstone girls Prue Maeyke and Kirra Baxter both placed in the top of their divisions in the Queensland Championships in September.

Twenty-one year old Prue placed fourth in the senior women's division while fourteen year old Kirra finished sixth in the junior girls class.

Both girls were the only Gladstone riders to place in the championships and recently received purple plates for their bikes at an awards dinner in Brisbane.

The Motorcycling Queensland Awards Night is an annual event to recognise Queensland's many state, national and international motorcycle champions and other outstanding contributors to the sport of motorcycling.

Prue said their place number is put on the purple plate as a symbol of their success.

"So everyone knows you did alright last year," she said.

It's a badge both girls are excited to wear next season.

"Personally for me, this is as good as it gets," Prue said.

"I've been sixth before so I'm pretty stoked,

"Personally I am very proud."

While this was Kirra's first full motocross season she said she considers her first plate as her biggest ever achievement.

"I am very happy with sixth place."

Motocross officials Rachael Ward and Karen Porter also received ten year service medals at the awards ceremony.
