“I would like to thank all the coaches, support staff and the members of my team for the great performance that allowed us to win the Zonal Championships for the 26th consecutive year, and I hope that we will be able to achieve the same calibre of results throughout the months and years to come.”
This is the 26th consecutive victory of the Trinity College Athletics Team at Zonal level, won this year by a gap of 91 points.
