After an impressive performance in Wagga last Friday, Deniliquin High School student Lucy Seale has been picked to represent Riverina at the NSW Combined High Schools open girls tennis championships.
The Year 10 student blitzed the regional trials to be one of nine girls selected in the team.
‘‘I finished equal first in my card and ended up playing eight sets of four games,’’ Lucy said.
‘‘There were 25 people trying out for the team. It was the first time I’ve tried out so it’s pretty exciting.’’
During summer Lucy plays in Deniliquin Lawn Tennis Club’s senior competition on Saturday afternoons.
In the lead up to the regional trials she practiced with fellow Deni High students Bree Collins, Pippa Metcalfe and Georgia Denny.
The four girls represented the school at the Riverina teams event on Thursday last week.
‘‘We went pretty well considering it was an open event and we were up against some Year 12 players.
‘‘In our first game we lost to Albury, 5-3, and then beat Wagga, 5-0.’’
Lucy said she will train with local tennis coach Kim Denny ahead of the state championships, which are being held in Paramatta from September 9 to 11.
Competing teams will represent North Coast, Sydney East, Western, Sydney North, South Coast, Hunter and North West.
