Queensland girls win Burtta Cheney Cup

View Final Results The Queensland girls team has completed a hat-trick of victories, lifting the Burtta Cheney Cup for the third consecutive year at the Australian Girls&apos Interstate Teams Matches at the Western Australian Golf Club in Perth. The Queenslanders defeated Western Australia 4-1 in the final round, and needed Victoria to defeat New South Wales to seal the victory. Dee-Dee Russell (QLD) finished undefeated at the championship as did Julienne Soo (VIC). Queensland Team Coach Virginia Irwin said the hard work had paid off. “The girls performed exceptionally well throughout the tournament. They focused, stayed in the present and played for each other,” Irwin said. “They worked hard and thoroughly deserve the win.” New South Wales and Victoria finished tied in second place, with Western Australia in fourth place and South Australia fifth.
