Girl's Tennis Victory


All teams battled hard against very wet and windy conditions, with the School emerging victorious in all age groups in the girls’ matches against Epsom College. 
The senior girls’ matches were extremely close. Captain Kelly Davidson and her partner Lettie Brien were clinical in their victory, and Harriet Harman scored a fantastic three aces to win her and Maya Gough’s final set against the opposition. It was a delight to see such a strong and dedicated first-team win. Second-team performers of the day were Frances Abrahamsen and Rachel Holden, winning all three sets with ease.
The juniors are really beginning to show class and maturity in their tennis, which bodes well for the future.  Mel Hyde and Olivia Stock are a strong first pair, ably backed up by Annabel Hurley and Louisa Bray. Third pair Sophie Salsbury and Rene Spreeth are certain to cause upset in future matches.

Enthusiastically led by Vicky Macfarlane, the B team showed no let up and hit some fabulous winners. The story was similar in the U14 games, with the A team’s first pair Katie Littlewood and Kirstin Hume carving through their opponents to bring the scoreboard to 6-1, 6-1, 6-0. 

All players put their heart and soul into their matches and showed great determination to overcome Epsom - an outstanding day for girls’ tennis at St John’s.
