Tennis Update

Last Saturday’s fixtures against St Margaret’s Anglican Girls School marked the end of a successful season of matches for all BGGS teams. The Senior B, Junior B, and Junior C teams all finished the season as undefeated premiers. The Senior C and Junior C2 teams finished in second place, while the Senior A, Junior A, and Senior C2 teams finished in third place, and the Open teams finished in fourth place.

The final rounds of fixtures contained some of the most exciting matches of the season. In the fixtures against Somerville House and Brisbane State High School, the Senior B team managed to win by only a handful of games. Congratulations to Lilian Schuetz (12M), Angelina Hsu (11W), and Laura Russell (10G) on playing terrific sets to secure victories in both matches. Similarly, the Junior B team was only a few points from being defeated by Brisbane State High School when Elise O’Kane (7H) came back from 5-2 to win the deciding set 7-5. Last Saturday, the Senior A team’s Linda Koorts (10M) played the longest set of the season, fighting hard for almost 90 minutes before winning a thrilling tie-breaker.

The success experienced by our teams this year can be attributed to the girls’ hard work and the dedication of our coaching team: Mr Rob Smeets; Mr Hamish Buchhorn; Ms Ayesha Kumar (2017); Ms Starr Lee (2017); Ms Josie Dooley (2017); Ms Madison Satyasiv (2017); and Ms Annabel Ryan (Head Girl, 2018). Thank you to parents for supporting their daughters at matches each week and assisting with morning teas for home matches.
