tennis: Exciting win for kearsney

2010-10-26 00:00

KEARSNEY College was the only KwaZulu-Natal school to participate in the annual Grey College top schools’ tennis tournament in Bloemfontein at the weekend.

Eight top tennis-playing schools from throughout the country participated in this premium event, which is a tournament for non-matriculants, called a Stayers tournament.

On day one, Kearsney lost to Waterkloof by four matches to five in a match that could have gone either way, and then lost to Affies by two matches to seven.

On the second day, Kearsney caused the upset of the tournament by beating the number two seeds, Paarl Boys, by five matches to four.

The previous day, Paarl Boys had beaten both Waterkloof and Affies.

Kearsney had another exciting win on the final day by beating a strong Pretoria­ Boy’s team by six matches to three. Unfortunately, the remainder of day three was rained out.

Paul Roos was the top school at the event and would have played Affies in the final, had the weather permitted.

At the final presentation function, Nic Andrew from Kearsney received an award for the best number 5/6 player at the tournament. He went unbeaten and won all of his matches in straight sets.

The next top schools’ event takes place in Stellenbosch in February and again the Kearsney boys will be competing at the highest level.
