Hadlow from Lawley Park walked away victorious in the consolation final while North, who hails from Kendenup, won the Busselton Bash consolation final in the girls’ competition.
Bremer Bay’s Dawson was runner-up in the consolation final and Lawley Park’s Lembo was second in the boys’ Busselton Bash consolation finals.
