Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -


PROSER­PINE’S young ten­nis guns have trav­elled far and wide to contest tour­na­ments over the school hol­i­days.

Seth Trinder and Mika Stim­son trav­elled to Rock­hamp­ton last week to com­pete in the Head State Age Cham­pi­onships.

Both play­ers per­formed ex­cep­tion­ally well, with Seth ad­vanc­ing to the quar­ter fi­nals in the un­der-12s di­vi­sion.

Tor­ren­tial rain de­nied him the chance to progress fur­ther, as the rest of the tour­na­ment was can­celled.

Seth, Mika, Amy Hunger­ford and Re­beka Beveridge then took on the Bur­dekin Ju­nior Open.

This time Seth was vic­to­ri­ous, win­ning the un­der-12 sin­gles and dou­bles ti­tles.

Mika claimed run­ner-up in the un­der-14s girls’ sin­gles and backed up to win the dou­bles.

Amy and her part­ner were run­ners-up in the same di­vi­sion.

Seth then took on the might of Townsville, step­ping up to the un­der-14 di­vi­sion where he fin­ished eighth in the sin­gles and run­ners-up in the mixed dou­bles.

Amy and Re­beka also pro­duced de­ter­mined ef­forts in Townsville, mak­ing for a solid fort­night for the Proser­pine Ten­nis Club away from home.
