Someone You Should Know: St. John Darts Player Headed To World Championship

Someone You Should Know

It’s been quite a busy year for Principal Chip Anderson, between cheering on his Woodchucks in their first ever State B Boys Basketball tournament and making sure his high school students feel safe and welcome each day.

“I don’t want the principal’s office to be ‘the principal’s office,'” he explains. “I want it to be a room.”

But as if that weren’t enough, Chip Anderson has one more trick up his sleeve.

“I think anything you do in life, if you want to be really good at it, it’s hard work,” Anderson says.

He’s talking about playing darts. And believe me: he’s put in the work. “Last summer I quit golfing, and in my free time, went to practicing darts.”

Anderson has piled up wins in local and regional tournaments. He’s even earned sponsorships. Now, this certified professional has his sights set on worldwide status.

“I leave for Spain two weeks from today. I’ll be there for a week. I’m at the Radikal World Championships.”

But the fun doesn’t stop in Spain: later this year he’ll compete in major tournaments in places like Las Vegas and Chicago, too. “Some of the best players in the world will be there,” he says.

Anderson’s ascent to pro status hasn’t gone unnoticed by his students, by the way.

He says the entire St. John football team viewed a live-stream of one of his tourneys on the team bus last fall.

And as he follows his dart-throwing destiny, he says the real bullseye is putting North Dakota on the map.

“We have a lot of good dart players [in North Dakota]. Anything I can do to help those players or grow the game in North Dakota, it makes me proud to do that,” he says.

Chip Anderson, a world-class darts player, is Someone You Should Know.

The Radikal World Dart Championship begins on April 10th in Spain.
