Well on Wednesday night we played our big Grand Final in B Reserve 2. Unfortunately we went down very badly on the scoreboard. Last season we finished top with one loss and then lost the semi-final on sets (i.e. a draw).
This year we finished top with two losses in a higher grade, won the semi-final but lost the grand final. The opposition however were way too good for us. Last season we missed a chance to win the whole thing, this year the opposition as a whole were too good. I did manage to play in the only set we won with the beautiful Elizabeth Hay 6-5. Liz served out the match with a very sore serving shoulder; she was very keen to get that set. Well done SG!! I don’t mind losing to a better team, in fact it usually makes you better in the long run.
As for next season, it looks like we have played our last season as a team together. Andrew and Sue are looking to play in B Special with other very good players and Liz has year 12 exams etc to worry about. I might have played my last game with Mt Carmel. You never know however.
