WA breaks cham­pi­onship drought

Joondalup Weekender - - Sport -

WESTERN AUS­TRALIA has bro­ken a 13-year hoodoo to be crowned Girls’ In­ter­state cham­pi­ons at Royal Perth Golf Club.

Mad­di­son Hin­sonTolchard, Eve Co­hen, YeahJin Lee, Kathryn Nor­ris, Kirsten Rudge­ley and Ab­bie Teas­dale were dom­i­nant through­out the week, go­ing through the event with only one loss.

It was the Sand­grop­ers’ first In­ter­state Cham­pi­onship since 2005 when they had suc­cess at the Glenelg Golf Club in South Aus­tralia.

Coach Ker­rod Gray said the girls bonded well as a team.

“Each team mem­ber was equally as in­stru­men­tal in all of our vic­to­ries,” he said.

“We just put our­selves in a po­si­tion on the last day where we couldn’t be beaten. “To cap off the week with the per­for­mance that we did, every­one is just re­ally happy.”
