MIKE Gregory and Zoe Wellicome won their first county racketball titles at the Devon championships last weekend.
They emerged victorious at the event staged at their home Devon & Exeter Squash & Racketball Club.
The men's final between long-time rivals Gregory and Matt Baker lived up to expectation.
Gregory won the first game before Baker won the next two. The fourth game saw Baker waste a number of match balls before Gregory snatched it 13-11.
That took its toll on Baker, who was forced to retire through injury early in the fifth.
Paul Gregory made it a family affair as he won the men's plate event for first round losers. The Devon & Exeter player beat Andy Jones 3-0.
The final of the men's classic event, for second round losers, saw Paul Smith narrowly get the better of his fellow Devon & Exeter club member Rob Watkins 3-2.
In the ladies' event the final was also a cracker, with Devon's two best female players Karen Bealey and Zoe Wellicome battling it out.
Wellicombe dropped the first game, but from that point on her power was a telling factor as she won 3-1.
