St Andrew’s College win Quadrangular Tennis fixture

Jan 22, 2019

St Andrew’s College played in the annual Settlers Cup Quadrangular against Union High, Kingswood College and Graeme College on Sunday (20 January).

The St Andrew’s side started well with a clean sweep over Kingswood, 12-0, playing high percentage tennis that set up good opportunities for them. They then followed this up with a solid 8-4 win over Graeme, staying focused in a more tense atmosphere on court. That lead to a final against Union to decide who takes the cup.

St Andrew’s started well with good singles wins by captain Ignus Potgieter, Nic Rogan and Robbie Houghton, as well as doubles wins for Nic Brotherton and Tiro Segalo. The second round saw St Andrew’s building on the lead and eventually took the fixture 9-3, retaining the Settlers Cup from last year. Well done to captain Ignus Potgieter who lead from the front and to all the players for a great start to the season.
