Trewick and Jansen the new champs

Port Douglas & Mossman Gazette - - SPORT -

LAST week­end saw two new divi­sion 1 champions, Levi Trewick and Cas­sia Jansen, emerge from the Port Dou­glas Ten­nis Club Ju­nior Club Cham­pi­onships.

Cas­sia was un­de­feated in the Girls sin­gles event. Anna Hard­ing, just only 9 years old, be­came the youngest ever run­ner up in this event.

Fleur Prins came close to beat­ing Cas­sia with two very tight tie-break­ers. Cas­sia and Fleur won the dou­bles ti­tle over Anna and Emma Hud­son.

“Levi Trewick and Daniel Plumbe fi­nal was a clas­sic,” com­mented club pres­i­dent Alan Lane of the fi­nals Div- ision 1 boys.

“Levi had four match points in the sec­ond set .... but no, Daniel would not go away, and forced the match into the third set. Daniel led early, but then Levi made his come­back to take the ti­tle. This was the last match of the day and what a cli­max.

Daniel was so very good .... al­most won the ti­tle”.

Rory Span­ton, also 9 years old, made it into the semi-fi­nals, but was de­feated by Levi. Levi and Daniel won the dou­bles fi­nals against Rory and Nash Thomp­son.

The con­so­la­tion round was won by Nash and run­ner-up be­came Ja­son So.

Quentin Nutt played an amaz­ing week­end.

He won the Divi­sion 2 ti­tle and is ready for Div 1.

Run­ner-up be­came Con­nor McNeil. Olivia Dol­lard showed great po­ten­tial with wins over Quentin and Jai Stapleton.

Jai be­came un­de­feated Div3 Cham­pion. Hamish Bat­ter­ham was very close to take the ti­tle. Hamish took the first set against Jai.

How­ever Jai could han­dle the pres­sure bet­ter and took the sec­ond set and could close out in the third su­per tiebreaker 10-6. Great ten­nis on a great week­end.

Next event at the Port Dou­glas Ten­nis Club is the Car­ni­vale mixed dou­bles Cup, Satur­day, May 21, at 1pm.

It’s open for ev­ery­body. Con­tact June Hall: june­hall@in­tern­ode.on.net.
