Sam, Veronica, Sheila and Anne won the event with a round to go, finishing well ahead of Maida, Sheila, Fiona and Liz. Unsurprisingly these two teams, consisting of all the triallists last year, were well clear of the field.
Fiona and Pauline were 3rd. Julia finished in a very creditable 4th place, beating Ros and Diana in the final match who had to settle for 10th. Beryl was 9th and Fiona 12th. Anne and Laura were 15th (probably disappointed with the finish having got into a decent position).
Of course they all had partners and team mates who helped out.
For the very top players this reasserted their dominance after last year's hiccup. But I hope that the rest take confidence from their performance forward to the next competitive events. Our coaching covered mainly technical areas, but I believe confidence in your own abilities is key to performing well consistently.
