Prossie tennis stars shine around North Queensland
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.
