County Juvenile League Finals
We had three teams qualifying for these finals which were held in the Galway Lawn Tennis Club on Sunday, 29th March.
Our U13 Team were winners in their section beating Cortoon by 7 games to love.
Team Members: Paul Loughlin & Katie O’Connor, Michael O’Connor & Maria Moran, Thomas Walsh & Gráinne Noonan, Stephen Keane & Kathryn Day
The U15 Team also played Cortoon in their Final. They were beaten in a very close final by 4 games to 3. They were unlucky on the day as Cathy Casserly and Christopher were unable to play, due to the squad training in Dublin.
The U15 Team Members: Ross Forde & Sandra Walshe, Joseph Garrett & Orla McKiernan, Peter Moran & Michelle O’Connell, Christopher Keane & Cathy Casserly, Sheila Hession
The U17 Team also played against Cortoon. They won a very close and exciting match by 4 games to 3.
Team members: Brian Casserly & Jennifer O’Connor, John Horgan & Caroline Garrett, Ciaran Moran & Joan Lyons, Sheena Tierney
Congratulations and thank you to all the players for their dedication throughout the season and to all the dedicated parents for their support and help.
Our Division III Team reached the semi-Final of the League. They were beaten by Loughrea in a very well contested and exciting match. Well done to all for playing so well throughout the year and hopefully you will be there again next season, with some more of our junior players who will be joining the Senior Ranks.
