Over the last two weeks, the Auckland Champion of Champions Tennis Tournament has been played and two of our students, Renee Zhang (Year 11, Marion Bruce) and Poppy Loutit (Year 11, Marion Bruce) have represented King’s College in the Senior Girls Singles and Senior Girls Doubles U19 Tournaments.  On Tuesday, they became the Champions!

In the Senior Girls Doubles Final, Renee and Poppy played against a strong Saint Kentigern College team and convincingly won the match 6-4,6-1.  They had previously beaten the Epsom Girls’ team 9-2.

Then in the Senior Girls Singles Final, Renee played the #1 Saint Kentigern College player and defeated her 6-3,6-0 to become the champion after having earlier won her semi-final match 6-0,6-1.

These two students played powerfully, deftly, and with grace and determination, and now are deserved Auckland champions. Congratulations to Renee and Poppy!
