Gong's long-awaited championship

Blue Glove Open: Spring 2022, May 27

In the opening weeks of the spring season, unfinished business from the winter needed sorting first. David Gong dealt with the pressure of a long-anticipated final brilliantly, defeating Ariana Ipakchi for the Winter Group C championship 8-1.

Yael Lan is off to the hottest start in Group A following her promotion, winning the sole match against Siena Propst.

In the latest match, Julia Ross overcame a stern test in Devin Leung to win 7-5 and claim first place in Group D. Meanwhile, Group B's Carter Mills has pole position, but a number of unbeaten players still remain in contention.
