Nina Rissi, fourth at the womens Copa de Castilla y León

We travelled to Segovia from 10th to 12th of May 2019 to play the Copa de Castilla y León Femenina.

In the second round Nina did not have her best day, and she lagged behind with a 74. But in the third and last round she returned to show all her talent and with a 68 she recovered to finish fourth place, for a total of 209 strokes, only four behind from the winner, Nieves Martín (205).

On the other hand Valeria did a tournament with a progressive way, and with three rounds of 77, 71 and 75 for a total of 223 strokes (+10), she finished in a fine 18º position, with a very good feelings.
