U15 Boys crowned North of England Tennis Champions
Last Friday, the victorious U15 boys’ Lancashire county tennis champions of last term travelled to the West Leeds Tennis Centre to participate in the culmination of the 2017-18 Team Tennis event at the North of England finals. Featuring the seven regional winners at this concluding event to the season, the AKS quartet of Roan Z, Oliver K, John B and Joshua Z emerged victorious from their semi-final against Manor C of E Academy, York, 8-4, and so proceeded to the final where they faced Ackworth School, the East Yorkshire champions. Standing level at 4-4 after the singles encounters, AKS fought hard to secure both doubles rubbers, winning the contest 8-4 and the accolade of North of England champions. Special mention should go to Roan and Zacharias, who remained unbeaten in both his singles and doubles matches on the day. Congratulations to the boys on this tremendous achievement.
