Senior Girls Tennis - State Champions

I wish to congratulate THE BEST SENIOR GIRLS TENNIS TEAM IN VICTORIA for 2015.  Our very own STATE CHAMPIONS: Jess BrzozowskaMichelle PitsSophie RobertsonBailey Sandler and Eren Ozenir.

Their story is one of persistence and resilience paying off. After being State Runners Up for the last five years, the girls were determined that it was their year to take home the State Title.

They became Kingston Champions by beating Parkdale, Sandringham and Bentleigh and became Southern Metropolitan Regional Champions by defeating  MacRobertson Girls High, Nossal and Lyndale Secondary.  

On Monday, at Boroondara Tennis Centre, they easily won Pool B by beating Horsham, Myrtleford, Gladstone Park and Mildura in the Semi Finals to advance to the State Final against Box Hill.  

The Final was a neck and neck tussle, so much so, that after four singles and two doubles, both teams were equal on sets and games won.  The Final was deemed a draw so an extra set needed to be played.  

Jess and Michelle convincingly won this 4-0 to enable McKinnon to take out the elusive State Title.  In fact, Michelle never dropped a single game in her singles match and as a doubles pair Jess and Michelle only dropped three games for the entire day.

The tennis journey this year was a fabulous team effort, with Sophie, Bailey and Jess competing at Divisional Regional and State competitions. All girls did a wonderful job.

Well done girls on your wonderful achievement!
