Minh triumphed, with an over-24 240 score at the three-day tournament where she faced senior and experienced rivals.
Joung Sun Mi stood second, with an over-26 242 result, followed by Ngô Lê Hoàng Nam Phương (over-31). The qualification’s leader, Nguyễn Thị Vân Anh, former national champion, placed fourth (over-36).
