Stawell Junior Tennis reached its highest point last Friday when they took part in its annual championships.
It was a hot night for the youngsters, but that didn't effect the standard of tennis.
Event organiser Christine Graveson praised all the children for their skills and sportsmanship on the night.
Angus Williams took out the A grade boys championships defeating Jonah O'Shannessy.
Williams is a big hitter from the base line and as the game went on he wore his opponent out.
Neve O’Shannessy got one back for her family taking out the A grade girls.
She defeated Molly Orr.
Dartagnan Walls took out the B grade match against Theo Browne who was gallant in defeat. Browne started the better of the two individuals, but Walls found a way to fight back and win. It was an unusual match up for the pair given they normally play together.
Isabella Browne defeated Jasmine Jagan in the B grade girls match.
Brodie ODonohue took out the C grade boys from Ashley Hutton who was the runner up.
Sophie Hutton won another tight tussle with Alana Graveson which went down to the final point.Scores were level at three games all and 40 all before Hutton won the f inal point.
Juniors continue this weekend.
Ladder leaders Frewstal will be attempting to finish its season proper with a win in the second last round of matches in Stawell’s Friday night tennis competition.
Frewstal has the bye in next week’s final round and cannot be dethroned from the top spot.
Frewstal has dominated the season thus far and will be looking to take some good form in to its break before finals commence..
They play Stawell Toyota who pushed them in their last meeting getting within five games.
Frewstals Nathan Baker and Jade Cross will have a battle royale versus Toyota’s Andrew Dunn and Jaiden Bach in a hard hitting match.
Stawell Toyota has plenty to lose if they do go down as they cling to fourth position on the ladder.
Match two has Crowe Horwath against Farrers Tyrepower.
Crowe Horwath has not got close to Farrers in their two previous encounters so a win tonight seems unlikely, but the incentive for them is that if they can cause an upset and defeat Tyrepower then its chances of sneaking into the final four will remain alive for one more round.
Josh and Lachlan Cox have been big improvers for Crowe Horwath this year and if they can keep this form up against Riley Burke and Cameron Hancock then their side will remain competitive.
