Victòria Díez, a second year student of Biotechnology at the Universitat de València, has been proclaimed champion of the individual 'raspall', in a final disputed against the also student of the Universitat Mar Giménez, who is a third year student of Medicine. The final was played in Bellreguard this weekend.

The final was a repeat of the one held in Alcàsser two years ago, with the same players, but won by Mar Giménez.

In Bellreguard, won the 'reballà' by Victoria, the first game fell on the red side. Mar turned the coin by taking the game from the 'dau'. The points were getting longer and longer because Victoria's solidity was answered by Mar. At 10-5, the 'blue' player lifted a 'Val per quinze' against and established the tie again, this time at 10.

But Victoria always stands out on serve, and the next game was hers with some comfort. With Mar back to the 'dau' and fifteenth, two balls to the box and another that forced an ill-advised hit by Mar meant 20-10 and a clear path to the fourth title. The last game, with Victòria on serve, was resolved without complications by the four-time champion, who embraced her partner and friend of the club for four years before getting ready to win the fourth championship title and the more than 15 kilos of the 'Feninde', the Greek frieze reserved for the chosen ones and for the first chosen one.
