Success for junior tennis08/03/2023
SCHOOL SPORT VICTORIA – SANDHURST DIVISION
It was a successful day for Catherine McAuley College Year 8 Boys’ and Junior Girls’ teams at the Sandhurst Division Junior day on Tuesday 28 February. All students represented CMC wonderfully and were enthusiastic to get on the courts and play.
In the first round, the girls played Marist College Bendigo and had a great win, with the boys following suit, defeating East Loddon P-12 College.
In the second round, the boys won in straight sets against Weeroona College; however, the girls came up against a tough opponent in Girton Grammar School and unfortunately lost, but it was a terrific match and Girton were great competitors.
During the third round, the girls had a bye and the boys had another win – defeating Marist in straight sets. The girls ended the day on a high, defeating East Loddon in a straight sets win.
To finish the day, the boys won against Girton, two sets to one and then won their final game for the day in straight sets against Castlemaine Secondary College.
The Year 8 Boys were overall winners of the tournament, with the girls finishing in second place. It was a great day and a wonderful achievement for CMC.
We wish the Year 8 Boys all the best at the Loddon Mallee Regional day in Mildura in early May.
