Playing our last game of the season against MBC was a bittersweet experience. On one hand, Saturday’s game marked the last of our grueling early morning wake-ups for tennis but it also marked the last time we will play tennis for the St Hilda’s team. On behalf of the seniors, I would like to thank everyone who has coached and supported us over these years. I am beyond grateful to have served as the captain of such an amazing team for the last two years and I will miss it every day moving forward. It has been an absolute privilege and honour to have played for the team for over 5 years. Thank you all, especially to the girls!
