Year 7 and 8 victory v Hethersett Academy

Leave a comment

On Monday our Year 7&8 tennis team played against Hethersett Academy in their first league match of the season. The match format is four singles and two doubles matches.

Our team of Rachel Y, Anna L, Cristina M-M, Ashlyn G and Darcey W performed magnificently against a very strong team. Hethersett Academy’s number one player is ranked number 1 in Norfolk in the Under 12 age group.

After all the singles and doubles matches had been completed, in total six matches, the score was 3-3.

This meant that we had an exciting tie-break situation to decide the match: a  doubles tiebreak shoot-out, just like a penalty shoot-out in football!

Rachel and Cristina played brilliantly and won the tiebreak 10-5!

The overall match score was HOHS 4  Hethersett Academy 3.

It was an outstanding team performance and a wonderful result against a much larger school – well done everyone.
