Super year of tennis rewarded
YOU can call them both Mr Consistent - Mitch Cooper and Caleb Williams have strung together top results all season to claim the under-11 and under-13 Central Junior Masters Circuit Championship in tennis.
Mitch's steady play meant he dropped only one match all season.
“A lot of training and good coaching from Kev (Banner) and Murray (Whitbread) has made my game improve that much this year,” Mitch said.
Their stable mates at Rotary Park Tennis Centre, Federico Keil and Brendon Schultz, shared in the silverware, taking with them the under-10 and under-15 singles championships in the same series.
It was the perfect birthday present for Brendon, who turned nine on the day of his triumph.
“I was so excited to win it. I finished fifth last year, so I was really happy to move up so much,” he said.
Federico also finished fifth last season, but improvement to his forehand and serve, as well as more consistency, has taken him to the top spot.
“I've been hitting the ball well, I'm pretty happy with how things have gone this season,” he said.
Federico backed up his singles triumph with third place in last weekend's Queensland Junior Masters in Gladstone.
Mitch and Caleb also represented Central Queensland, notching some good wins to finish mid-field.
“They all played really well and contributed to the team's good result. They should be happy with themselves,” coach Kev Banner said.
