Following two trial sessions two teams were selected:
Justin Cuennett – Year 10
Max Young – Year 9
Harrison Evans – Year 8
Patrick Vince – Year 7
Easan Zhang – Year 10
Jacob Barrington – Year 8
Benjamin Malek – Year 8
An exciting change in format this year saw our championship boys playing their opposite number in singles matches before joining their teammates in doubles. Justin faced a number of Australian ranked players and these were very close matches and extremely exciting to watch. Our Championship boys represented themselves well and were unlucky to just miss out on the final, coming in a very creditable third place.
Our Division Two boys played exceptionally well throughout the tournament. Combining power and accuracy, playing in rotating doubles, they worked as a terrific team. Facing a strong team from Mater Maria College, Warriewood in the finals, they were ultimately victorious in a close match.
It is always a pleasure to work with the Tennis team. Every year the convenors and parents from other schools, comment on the sportsmanship and courtesy of our students – this year was no exception.
The day was postponed due to severe storms, and this meant a change in venue from the usual Oxford Falls location to courts in Marsfield. We are so grateful to the convenors and to our sports team here at school for accommodating this last-minute change.
