Exceptional tennis and sportsmanship at the Junior Tennis30/03/2018
SCHOOL SPORT VICTORIA: SANDHURST DIVISION
Congratulations to all players who represented the College at the recent Sandhurst Tennis days that were held at the Bendigo Tennis complex. All players displayed exceptional sportsmanship and played some very good tennis – and their results reflected this.
YEAR 8 BOYS
The Year 8 boys played brilliant tennis all day winning 6 of their 7 matches. In the end they only lost to the overall winners on the day – Bendigo South East College. Well done boys on a great day.
Year 8 Boys Tennis Team (L-R): Matthew Wernert MY3, Xavier Meersbergen BK1, Henry McCarthy BK3, Jackson Davis MY1, Toby Naughton MY4, Jack Brady VT1
YEAR 8 GIRLS
The Year 8 girls played in a 9-team competition, meaning they had to win their initial pool matches to go through to the Championship division for the finals. They won their two qualifying matches easily, placing them at the top of their pool. They then played both Girton Grammar and East Loddon College, and although they went down to both of these teams, they played some great tennis and managed to finish third on the day – a fantastic result. Well done girls.
Year 8 Girls Tennis Team (L-R): Hannah Maher CH3, Macey O’Shea BK4, Marnie Wakefield CH5, Bridget Johns CH4, Courtney Gooch VT2, Aimee Dean VT1
