Zone 5 youngsters, Presley Williams and Jacob Warrington, became the fifth combination to win the NZ 1-5 Year Pairs on Saturday. While a few of their matches came down to the wire, their overall performance was a dominant one as they chalked up six wins and a draw from seven games
Tauranga’s Sarah Burke and Matthew Burke gave a great effort with only two one-point losses on the board to finish a very worthy second place.
A slow start to the afternoon saw Ashburton’s Nic Andrew and Joc O’Connor in eighth, but once they got going they were in unstoppable form. Four big wins saw them skyrocket into third for the bronze.
Congratulations to our 1-5 Year placegetters and competitors!
