The Southern Gauteng Girls’ High School Tennis Association held the annual junior inter-high at four different venues across Johannesburg on Saturday. Twenty-three schools participated in this event. Each team consisted of four pupils from Grade 8 and 9. This year St Mary’s A took the title, beating Helpmekaar A in a tightly contested final by 10 games to 8. The Helpmekaar team, which St Mary’s beat in the final, included the top two Gauteng Central U15 players, so it was a fantastic effort.
St Mary’s B team also did very well, ending in 10th position. In the round robin phase they lost to Helpmekaar A and Roedean A, but beat Fourways A, Kingsmead A and St Peter’s A.
