First it was Karla Burger and Ciara Thorburn (Elnatan) who accounted for Jana Hein and Tanya Masters (Holy Cross Convent) in the doubles, then Anja Steenkamp (Elnatan) played her best match ever to beat Namibia u/18 number 1 seed, Kaitlyn Beukes (Holy Cross Covent), for the winning point. In the boys division the top-seeded DHPS team had to settle for third position after beating Mariental High School in the play-off for 3rd place. They earlier lost to Rehoboth High School.
