Junior Tennis on Winning Track
The season started with a strong group of 8 junior boys and 9 junior girls who were interested in competing on the Junior Tennis teams for Brentwood. Many of the juniors have been practicing with the seniors to improve their skills. Throughout the year they have participated in the Fall Classic Tennis Tournament and the Spring Invitational which has permitted them to play with various partners and become more familiar with each other. At the Independent School Association Tournament the girls played strongly finishing 2nd, only losing to a strong Crofton team. The boys played well and finished fifth against a strong field.
The second major tournament of the season was the Junior High Provincial Tennis Tournament with two junior girls and two boys junior boys teams entered. The #1 boys team competed well finishing fifth after losing a close match in the quarterfinals to the eventual silver medallist. The #2 boys team finished 9th. The #1 junior girls team saved their best tennis for this tournament and finished a strong 4th. The #2 junior girls team also played very well and finished 8th.
We look forward to a number of players moving up to senior next year as well as a strong nucleus who have another year of junior eligibility.
We would like to thank Mr Art Hobbs, Ms Tiara Hobbs, and Mrs McLean for all their hard work and a fun season.
