Paul Roos again proved their dominance in schools’ tennis by winning the 19th invitational festival. It is the tenth time in 18 years that Paul Roos, from Stellenbosch, has won the festival. Their clinical domination left the remaining teams playing for second position. They also won their own festival in February. Kearsney’s three-day tournament ended with Affies, from Pretoria, in second place. Our thanks are extended to Spor tsman’s Warehouse andWilson for their continued suppor t as well as to Richden’s Spar who supplied ‘swag’ for each player. The Grey College festival A young, but determined, 1st tennis team held their own at this very tough and demanding event. The top eight schools from around the country arrived in Bloemfontein to compete in extremely hot and humid conditions. The Kearsney boys acquitted themselves well, and although they only managed to win one match, were extremely competitive. vs Grey College lost 9 – 0 vs St Stithians lost 8 – 1 vs Affies lost 8 – 1 vsWaterkloof: lost 8 – 1 vs Paarl Boys won 5 – 4 Ant Willows AWARDS College champion: Dale Sandy College doubles champions: Dale Sandy and Keegan Foss U 15 champion: Kyle Koenig Honours for tennis: Dale Sandy and Keegan Foss Provincial caps KZN U 19A Dale Sandy KZN U 15A Bradley Por teous KZN U 15B Mihir Singh With grateful thanks to Gert Muller
