Tennis

On Wednesday 9March the Salesian tennis team travelled to Melbourne Park to play St Bernard’s in their semi-final match. Prior to the game St Bernard’s had only dropped one set for the season. Unfortunately we were unable to secure a finals place. The boys lost the game: St Bernard’s 10 Sets 71 games Def. Salesian 2 Sets 46 Games. The boys put in a tremendous effort to get to the semi-final and on behalf of the College we congratulate them.
This concludes Senior Tennis for 2016.

St Bernard’s 1 Set 90 Points. This win put us through to the grand final where we would playoff against Mazenod for the title. On Wednesday 16 March the final was played against Mazenod. Unfortunately Mazenod outplayed us defeating us: Mazenod 3 Sets 75 Points Def. Salesian 0 Sets 32 Points.

Wickets were taken by Nathan Antonucci, Sacheen Paramesh and four other boys taking a wicket each. Unfortunately our boys were bowled out for 66 runs.
