Students graduate to top of the class

February 20, 2018

Old Students charged to the top of the Shepparton District Tennis Association ladder with the move coming in the final round of the season.

McEwen Reserve took pride of place at the top of the pops for most of the year, before the Students swooped to claim the minor premiership on Saturday.

Old Students claimed an impressive victory against McEwen Reserve, with women’s doubles action leading the way for the 6-52 to 4-44 success.

Megan Hunter, Raelene Mundie and Donna Hyde claimed all three of their sets to create a 10-game buffer at the end of their encounters.

The mixed doubles were much tighter contests as Tim Comer and Lynn Gibbs did their utmost to bring the scoreline McEwen’s way.

But the eight-game loss resulted in McEwen Reserve dropping to second by 0.76 per cent.

As a result, McEwen will meet Shepparton North in the first week of finals and Old Students will play St Brendan’s.

Shepparton North enters the finals having comprehensively defeated Central Park, 7-52 to 2-39.

North counteracted Central Park’s dominance in the men’s doubles with stirling efforts in women’s and mixed doubles.

Georgie Moore, Wendy Sidebottom and Kailee Densworth had a clean sweep of their sets, with the same occurring in mixed action to secure a 13-game victory.

Karramomus’ pennant season ended with a 7-44 to 2-26 loss to finals-bound St Brendan’s.

Romney Cresswell, Marie Levett-Hall and Carmel Linehan combined to take two sets for Karra in women’s action, but the rest of the day belonged to the Saints.

Xavier McBain, Brendan McMullan and Paul Howard put their side on the road to victory after the men’s doubles, and the Saints continued the good work in the mixed doubles to add another 11 games to their advantage following the three sets.
