Zone 4 Grey Win Junior Inter-Zone Championship

by Billy Johnson

The title of Champion Zone has gone down to the wire in the Junior Inter-Zone Championship, with Zone 4 Grey edging out Zone 16 by a slender two points. The Champion Zone is decided on a system that allocates points based on each discipline, so the higher a player or team finishes in any discipline, the more points they have allocated to their Zone.

Zone 4 Grey earned their place at the top of the list courtesy of a Gold Medal in the fours, a Bronze Medal in the singles and a fourth place finish in the pairs. Zone 16 were close behind with two fourth place finishes and a Gold Medal of their own in the Pairs. Incredibly, if the Singles Bronze Medal match was won by Zone 16, they would have leap-frogged Zone 4 Grey into the position of Champion Zone, highlighting how close the final standings were.

The reality though is that Zone 4 Grey were deserving champions, and all participating teams did themselves and their clubs, Zones and families proud! Congratulations also to the ACT, who for the first time in Junior Inter-Zone history entered a side to participate in the event. We hope that this will be the first of many sides entered!
