West Buckland boys lead Devon to victory

While Evie Bishop enjoyed her day at Wimbledon, our Prep School tennis stars had their own triumphs.

Devon U9 county champions

Lincoln Boden, Freddie Lloyd and Eric Lorimer
represented Devon in the County Cup U9 Competition against Somerset, Dorset and Cornwall. Playing a combination of singles, doubles and mixed doubles matches, the Devon team proved to be serious competition. After comfortably beating Somerset and finishing on top against Cornwall, the deciding rubbers were to be played against the Dorset team.
This round saw Lincoln win the boys’ singles match while Freddie and Eric smashed the doubles, resulting in two matches each per county. To resolve the competition, all eyes were on the mixed doubles match, which resulted in Devon being crowned deserving winners. Well done to our West Buckland boys, of whom we are most proud!
