Our Somerset Spartans and nine of our College coaches competed at the Gold Coast Albert Tennis Club Championships, held Sunday 17 July. Many of our Spartans have been training hard this year to compete at these events and it showed, as they produced some great results and displayed high levels of tennis and sportsmanship.

Out of a total draw of 38 players, Somerset had three out of the four semi-final spots taken by students in the Junior Under 18s' draw, which is an amazing result on its own. 

Orion Burdett, Ethan Stewart and Timofey Korin displayed some incredible tennis to climb their way through the draw, with Orion eventually taking out the whole event, defeating the top ranked player in the draw. On his way to the final, Orion only dropped four games and won 32 out of his five matches. An amazing performance of which he should be very proud.

Coaches also participated in this event, with Lachlan Yarwood competing in the Open Singles, winning the Consolation draw, and Lachlan Treacher competing with Orion Burdett in the open doubles, narrowly losing by one point to the fourth ranked pairing in the quarter finals.

We would like to extend our thanks to the parents who survived and supported our Spartans throughout the long 12-hour day and congratulate all the Spartans below on a successful tournament!
