This was a team competition at St Mary’s College Academy. The players were;
We won all our group matches, beating Newington Academy, Burton Upon Strather, and Old Clee. We didn’t drop one game and played exceptionally well. This put us through to the semi finals as winners of group A where we met Coomb Brigg where again we didn’t drop a game. We were now in the final against St Vincent who have a player ranked 2nd in the Country; with hard competition, we fought through and won 5-2 in sets, meaning we came away as overall champions! We now are competing Nationally!
The five boys played amazingly, showing fantastic sportsmanship, attitude, dedication, hard work and most of all enjoying the whole experience. It was a wonderful day out and some fantastic games of table tennis.
