Tennis v Clayesmore

Not only was it exam week, but the LVs who were scheduled to play this match had a heavy exam day on Friday and couldn’t commit to an evening of tennis.

Step forward the “super duper amazingly brilliant” UIV who, not only filled every spot to replace the LV, but also won two of the matches playing against the older Clayesmore U15s to maintain their unbeaten record so far this season.

It was a fantastic evening of tennis with 24 girls playing some exhilarating matches.  There were some nail bitingly close wins and cool, calm and highly skilled rallies played under lots of pressure against the strong Clayesmore players.

It was wonderful to see players who have been out practising all term at training but not always selected to play, realising their potential and their hopes by representing the school.

It was a very proud evening for St Mary’s and thank you UIV, for making it count when it matters. Special mention must go to Tess, Clem, Alice, Penny, Mollie, Lily, Jimmy and Isobel.
