SCHOOL SPORT VICTORIA: SANDHURST DIVISION
Senior Boys Tennis
A perfectly beautiful autumn day for tennis! The boys team consisting of Jackson Davis, Henry McCarthy, Joshua Evans, and Lucas Rojewski, played in a round of four teams which included Marist College Bendigo, Bendigo Senior Secondary College, and Girton Grammar School.
In the first round they played off against Marist and were successful in two of the singles matches.
In the second round they faced Girton. All matches were very close with the result being a three-set all tie. Some well-fought matches with Joshua Evans winning 6-5 and Henry winning both his doubles and singles matches. Unfortunately, Girton had the edge winning an extra 3 games.
The third round saw them facing their most challenging team, BSSC, who were too strong and won convincingly. Well done to Jackson, who won his singles match 6-3.
All boys are to be commended for their sportsmanship and effort on the day.

They then defeated Crusoe College and Victory Christian College to finish the day in 2nd place.
