From the Captain of Tennis, Kiva Gwynne
The 6th round of the season against St. Aloysius involved many ups and downs, alongside two exceptional victories from the 1sts and 2nds that will unquestionably go down in the history books.
The hard-fought triumph for the 1sts was the second win of the season, and was highlighted by the great effort that was put into the singles matches. After the doubles concluded, St. Aloysius were up 3 sets to 1, and looked set to take the victory. Against all odds, the Waverley boys were able to take out 3 of the 4 singles sets, which saw a 4 sets all, 37 games to 35 result in our favour. Kolt Piggins-Massad’s match was the high point of the 1sts matchup, as he came back from a 1-4 game deficit to win 6-4.
The 2nds were able to summon their first win of the season, prevailing in a 5 sets to 3 battle. Axel Montesinos and Ryan Crawshaw proved unstoppable in their doubles and singles, tallying up 4 sets for the 2nds, with Matija Hrpac sealing the victory by winning his singles match. The 3rds were not as fortunate, as they were defeated 6 sets to 0.
The 10A’s are keeping up their great form, beating the St. Aloysius boys 4 sets to 2. Another great performance means that the 10A’s are undefeated against Aloysius this season. Oliver Ruse and Marko Dundovic highlighted this fixture, winning all three of their doubles and singles sets 6-1. Both the year 7A’s and B’s teams were dismissed 4 sets to 2, which is a slight improvement since they played St. Aloysius in the first round.
Demonstrated by the results on Saturday, the Waverley boys are slowly but surely improving, and every team is giving their all in training to better their game. We hope to keep improving as we play Cranbrook after the long weekend.
