During the school holidays Somerset Tennis had two teams head to Brisbane for the state titles. The Brisbane International Schools Challenge state final is the highest point of Tennis for the Junior School.

We had a Year 5 and below team and a Year 4 and below team.

The Year 5 and below team was: • Fynn Busuttin
• Hamish Kennedy
• Orion Burdett
• Kaii Norman
• Sasha Hanford

The Year 5 and below event was played on orange balls with a modified court. There were 10 schools at the state finals and we happened to go undefeated into the final, when we lost to Fig Tree Pocket State School. The team finished in second place which was a great achievement.

Our Year 4 and below team was: • Liam O’Nuallian
• William Pluss
• Ethan Stewart
• Jamie Batho
• Justin Kim
• Roneel Khartri
• Patrick Deacon
• Samuel Carson
• Leny Grigor
• Inca Burdett

The Year 4 and below event was played on red balls and a modified court. With the courts being so small it makes this event so much harder to be successful. There were 25 schools that qualified for the state finals and Somerset happen to place third in this event. One of the highlights was Liam O’Nuallian getting the Sportsmanship Award for the whole tournament.
