As always the Northerns Junior Closed tournament was a tense affair with players using the last chance to improve or consolidate their positions on the provincial ladder in order to get selected to the provincial teams.
The selection criteria takes into account each player’s record against the others over the whole season, starting with the Start of season tournament in September and culminating in the NJSA Closed. The committee met right after the prize giving to select the teams and invitation letters went out on Monday (see the announcement elsewhere on the website).
In all the excitement, let’s not forgive who were crowned the NJSA champions for the year:
|u19||Reece Mclachlan||Helena Coetzee|
|u16||Damian Groenewald||Awande Malinga|
|u14||Luhann Groenewald||Jordin Phillips|
|u13||Patrick Weir||Chanté Leppan|
|u11||Wian de Bruin||Elzandri Janse van Rensburg|
Here are the full results of the tournament:
