Somerset Tennis Spartans recently had the opportunity to compete at the Queensland Secondary Schools State Tennis Trials. With 24 players across three divisions – Open Boys, Junior Boys and Junior Girls – the team had a strong showing and brought home some impressive results.

Open Boys division saw the team perform well despite having a few players out. The Open boys managed to find some form towards the end of the day, earning themselves fourth place in what was a fiery and tough division. A great way for our senior students to end their tennis journey at the college.

The Junior Boys division was even more impressive with Somerset fielding the most teams in division, with the A team placing third, narrowly losing to The Southport School in the semi-finals. Special mention goes to Orion Burdett, who not only faced some of the best players in the region for his age, but for also leading the team to this great result. Our B and C teams also performed exceptionally well, placing fifth and sixth respectively.

The team’s performance in the Junior Girls division was equally as strong, having lost to PBC in the final to come home with a strong second place. Our best result so far in this division, so the girls should be exceptionally proud of themselves!

The Colleges’ strong performance was thanks to the hard work and dedication of all the players and coaches on the day and throughout the weeks leading up to this event.

Overall, Somerset College’s performance at the Queensland Secondary Schools State Tennis Trials was a major success and all players should be proud of their efforts. We look forward to next year improving upon these results!
