Lead by Cambridge No 1 Pascale Louka who overcame the experienced Johanna Yue 3/1, No 2 Hayley Chiu lost a close 5 setter to Joanne Ttophi and Captain Michelle Hodge defeated Prue O’Niell in 3 to clinch to fist State Grade win by Cambridge in over a decade.

The highlight of the night was the match between No 2 Dylan Classen and Jack Hillier. Leading 2/1 Hillier was looking to cause a huge upset but could not keep up the intensity for the last two games which saw Classen win in 5.
