Today the 2018 Junior Fives champion was crowned.
After a week of intense round robin play the four semi-finalists were found. Year 10 students Boudewijn Keenan and Michael Crosson were pitted against Year 9 students Vinnie Gable and Isaac Taylor.
In the semi finals Keenan defeated Taylor 12-11 and Gable upset Crosson 12-4. The final, unlike round robin play is the best of three sets. It was a closely fought affair but, in the end, Keenan claimed a 12-9, 12-8 victory and with it the 1883 J.J.J. Mallard Cup for 2018. Boudewijn will be presented this historic Otago Boys’ High School trophy at the end of year Junior Prize Giving.
Thank you to all the supporters for getting along and supporting the players in the matches on finals day and also a special thank you to Mr McGarry for presenting the J.J.J. Mallard Cup for 2018 to this year’s champion Boudewijn Keenan.
