2011-11-08 00:00

THE St Anne’s Diocesan College first tennis team won the Lyle League trophy for the sixth year in succession.

The St Anne’s side, coached by Kath Lowe, which won the Lyle League A Section, is led by captain Steph McDonald­ whose deputy is Abby Latimer­, while their team-mates are Kim Stratford, Sherry King, Christie Bradford and Tessa van der Merwe.

The 2011 schoolgirls’ tennis season has come to a close. In the latter part of the year the league is split into an U17 and U15 age-group league.

Epworth won the U17A section and Pietermaritzburg Girls’ High School won the U15A section.

There are a number of talented young girls who are playing tennis for various schools around the KwaZulu-Natal midlands and many close encounters are anticipated on the tennis courts between the schools next year.

The prestigious Smythe Trophy, which is the KZN Inter-schools’ competition­, will take place on January 28.

Danville are the reigning holders of the Smythe Trophy, but it is expected that they and the rest of Durban’s top tennis schools will face stiff competition from the Pietermaritzburg and midlands schools in 2012.
