Congratulations to Matthew Spargo and Jasper Lucas from Tauranga Boys College on their win in the New Zealand Secondary School Pairs.
Matthew Spargo showed promise at the National Championships in June when he won the Cliff Thompson Trophy for junior going the furthest, and again today as he and Jasper played their way to a gold medal.
Their Mt Maunganui College opponents were in top form and had made a great start to the final but were unable to keep the momentum in their favour. Hunter Reid will go home with a gold, bronze, and now a silver after his strong performances over the past three days.
The bronze medals were awarded to Michael Burke/Sarah Adlam, also from Mt Maunganui College, and Dylan Foster/Sean Haskins from Gisborne Boys High School. This result, along with the singles win, saw Dylan receive the trophy for Player of the Tournament.
Congratulations to everyone on a successful event!
