The 2023 AIC Tennis season was another exciting one for tennis players in the Association. The format used for fixtures includes teams competing in both singles and doubles games, with the winning team being decided by total matches won. Often the fixtures are even on matches and the result is decided by sets and then if still tied, individual games won. This year, St Peters tennis teams stood out by winning both the First IV Premiership and the Aggregate Shield.
First IV Premiership
The First IV Premiership was a very tight contest with a number of fixtures being decided on total sets and in some cases to total games throughout the fixture. St Peters were able to remain undefeated throughout the season to claim the premiership. St Laurence’s finished a very close second with Marist College Ashgrove in third.
Congratulations to the following schools who claimed AIC Tennis Premierships:
St Peters: 1sts, 2nds, 3rds, 10A, 10B, 9A, 8A, 8B*, 7B.
St Patrick’s: 9B, 7A*
St Laurence’s: 8B*
Marist College Ashgrove: 8B*
The AIC Aggregate Tennis Shield was claimed by St Peters in an incredible whole of College performance. St Peters were able to claim nine of the eleven AIC premierships on offer. In a very close contest for the second and third place, Marist College Ashgrove (2nd) held of Iona College (3rd). St Peters have claimed the Aggregate Shield each year since 2012.
