Central Queensland junior masters show good results
CENTRAL Queensland juniors are enjoying a great tour of Victoria and New South Wales as part of the Head CQ Junior Masters team which is touring under the guidance of Gladstone coach Ken Hick.
The Gladstone players in the team are Noah Marsh, Ryan Mitchell and Ben Aldridge. The team is made up of players from the Central Region including Gayle Walters, Cassie Gramlick, Ben Carlon and Angela James from Bundaberg, Alana Keys from Biloela and Daniel Cutler, Dane McKinnon, Nikita Williams and Rachel Davey from Rockhampton.
The team has completed the first event at Shepparton with some good results. The best performed was Cassie Gramlick who was runner-up in the 14/u girls singles and doubles partnering Angela James. Dane McKinnon reached the semi-final of the 14/u boys singles and Gayle Walters did the same in the 18/u girls event.
Ben Aldridge, Noah Marsh and Ryan Mitchell all enjoyed some success winning preliminary match and gaining some great experience on grass but did not feature in the finals.
The CQ Team has contested the two team matches but unfortunately will not be returning home this year with the silverware. In the Patsy Guthrie Cup in Shepparton CQ finish in around 6th place but two CQ players featured in the trophies with Cassie Gramlick winning the female player of the day and Gayle Walters winning our best team player.
In the Margaret Court Cup in Albury the CQ team was only three games of making the finals with the Alice Springs team taking out the title.
The team was very disappointed with four players winning their respective courts and they were Gayle Walters, Ben Carlon, Daniel Cutler and Dane McKinnon.
The CQ team will complete another tournament in Albury today before heading to the Australian Open for three days to watch the world's best players in action.
