Here are the Standings at the end of Round 4 (Feb-March) of the Teams Postal. (Full results can be downloaded on this page: https://www.archerynz.co.nz/nz-postal-leagues/teams-postal-league-results-and-records/)
Luckily everyone managed to get rounds in before the Lockdown, though some teams didn't manage to get as many people as hoped, with the virus probably putting off a few from shooting. So quite a few defaults in the lower divisions from B and C teams.
However, there was still plenty of action going on! In Division One, Mountain Green fielded their Dream Team of Fred Leota, Stephen Florence and Sam Hudson, who scored just under each of their divisions records by 6, 3 and 7 points respectively to make a score higher than any other we can find in the last 10 years, and to take out River Glade to hold the top of the table. Auckland A won against Southland and Manawatu managed a close win by 6 points against Gisborne.
Division 2 saw wins by Randwick A, Christchurch A and Christchurch B, had the Two Christchurch Teams jump up to third and fourth, and Randwick cement its lead.
Division 3 saw wins by Geraldine, Mountain Green B and Shore A, putting them into that order at the top of the table. This division could be determined by the final round as Geraldine is against Mountain Green C and if Mountain Green C and B win this could push B to the top.
Randwick B, Auckland C and Shore B won their matched in Division 4 to push them to the top three in that order, with Randwick C dropping from first to fourth.
Division 5 saw Mana drop from first to second due to their bye which they should make up next round when Waiarapa has a Bye. And finally no surprises when Tauranga A won against Tauranga B.
So for the final round we will make a decision on what is happening once we have some idea when we can shoot at club level again. Stay Cool everyone.
