TENNIS: Unbeaten girls edged into second
8:00am Friday 7th February 2014 in Sport
OXFORDSHIRE’S Under 18 girls starred in the 12 Counties Tournament at Corby.
The four-strong squad of Patricia Valimaa, Alice Atkins, Lizzy Shortis and Aoife Miller were unbeaten in their three matches to share top spot with Northamptonshire – but had to take second place overall.
They enjoyed a 4-0 whitewash of Cheshire, before beating Bedfordshire 3-1.
A 2-2 draw with Northants saw the sides finish level.
Valimaa and Atkins showed their strength at No 1 and 2, winning all three of their matches.
The boys’ squad of Giles Waterson, Bobby Gosling, Max Heath and Tom Gibbons found the going tougher, with just one draw from their three games.
Although a 2-2 result against Northamptonshire was a decent start, the boys then suffered 4-0 defeats at the hands of Cheshire and Bedfordshire to finish bottom.
