From Matija Hripac, Captain of Tennis
The 1sts and 2nds arrived at the Cranbook home courts, Dangar Courts at 7:30am. The team was down their A1 team member due to illness and recruited Ross Mormanis to complete the team. Everyone felt the pressure to perform their very best. All members of the team fought valiantly and with the morning progressing it was clear that it would be a very close match between the firsts and seconds at Cranbrook. In the end Waverley lost in the first 4-4 (47-38) and 5-3 in the Seconds. The Thirds were down 5-1, and the fourths had won 4-2. Other years had success with the year 10 As and Bs wining winning 10-2. The rest of the years didn’t have the same luck with the year 9 As tying 3 sets all and the Bs losing 6-0. There were some players who showed great ability even out of their comfort zone. Ross Mormanis, played for the first time in the second’s squad and won his singles set 6-4. Special mention should also be made of Lachlan Unsworth and Kolt Piggins-Massaad who both won their singles and doubles, despite having to play higher positions than usual.
The tennis community would also like to thank the tennis supporters for a great contribution of new resources. This equipment is invaluable and very much appreciated by the teams at Waverley, please do not hesitate to get involved with this initiative.
