Tennis

On Friday, the O'Connor tennis squad consisting of; the Dennehy's, the Maurer lads, Kareena Dawson, Noah L'Hostis, Sam Walker and Sam Davis travelled to Gunnedah to compete in the Diocesan Tennis.

All played well, with Sahra (2 from 2 in singles), Connor and Sam Davis (2 from 3 in singles) being the pick of the crop. The younger boys improved with each game and all should be proud of their efforts.
