Div2: Spicer entered 4 teams in this division, GS9 - 1st, GS6 - 2nd, GS8 - 3rd and GS7 - 4th, Yong Lee (GS9) topped the averages on 90.48%, with Yongsuk Choi (GS9) on 80%, with Jonathan Chernett (GS6) 4th with 75.61%.
Div3: GS10 were winners of this division, Daniel Shepherd (GS10) topped the averages on 85.71% and Shruti Chowdhary (GS11) was 2nd on 85.19%
After the first weekend the ladies were in 2nd last place so had to perform better for the 2nd weekend to have any chance of remaining in the Division 3 following their promotion the previous year. Things did not go according to plan as our top 2 ranked players were not available and the rules only provide for the replacement player to be 'lower' ranked nationally. The team did not survive and were relegated to Div 4. The team was represented by Michelle McGovern (replaced by Medha Verma), Janice Lee, Lute Durham and Captain Kumiko.
