Warriors clean up at home Australia Day weekend event

January 31, 2017

Numurkah Warriors players were in blistering form during the annual tournament at their home courts, securing plenty of silverware.

In particular star women’s player Helene Steward was near flawless, successful in each event she contested during Numurkah Lawn Tennis Club’s annual round-robin tournament.

She held up the A-grade women’s singles trophy as she faced her usual Warriors teammate Caitlyn Price.

The two form a part of arguably the strongest women’s team in the Goulburn Murray Lawn Tennis Association, but stood on opposite ends of the court on Saturday.

The singles title was not the only trophy Steward collected on Saturday, teaming up with Colin Mackay to also claim the A-grade doubles division.

Numurkah was again represented in B-grade as Brayden and Caitlyn Price secured the mixed doubles title, following Brayden’s runner-up finish in A-grade singles.

Nick Fenaughty proved too strong an opponent in the singles final, with the previous champion of the event adding another trophy to his cabinet.

Following on from her two successes on Saturday, Steward was back on the winners list on Sunday.

Steward and Suzie Jones were crowned champions of the A-grade women’s doubles event, defeating Shepparton mother and daughter duo Louise and Gabby Dwyer.

A-grade men’s doubles had Warriors captain Mark Mills the victor alongside Alex Bakogianis, while Justin Hunter and Tim Comer won the B-grade division.

Twenty clubs were represented at the annual Australia Day weekend tournament, with nearly 200 entries received across the three days.
