Renfrewshire's Megan Briggs, pictured, was the MVP of the tournament with 5 wins from six outings. Sister Eilidh won all four of her matches and Carol Whyte also scored four wins out of six for champions Renfrewshire.
Eilidh  Briggs commented: “I couldn’t get a day off work on Friday, I’ve just started a new job as a PE teacher, but the team did well without me! I was 100 per cent over the weekend which was great, as I’ve not played for the county since 2014, so it was really good to come back and contribute. I was in the winning 2010 team as well, which was a duel with Midlothian too."
Midlothian had two players with four wins apiece - Gabrielle MacDonald and girls' champion 13-year-old Hannah Darling.
