Westville Boys’ High School’s Tennis Team walked away with top honours at the annual Wilson Shield for High Schools held at Sun City recently.
Competing against nine other schools from around the country, including Grey PE, the level of competition was going to be tough.
Top WBHS player, Yaseen Ibrahim, was ruthless in his annihilation of every opponent who faced him across the net at the Tournament, never conceding a single set. Team members Paseka Motsamai, Themba Makhanya, Jadon Rossler and James van der Meulen backed him up with impeccable displays of tennis.
This team were undefeated in the round- robin pool and faced Trinity House in the semi-final, winning this without the need to play any of the doubles matches.
WBHS were matched with Grey PE going into the final and this was a much closer affair, with Yaseen Ibrahim and Paseka Motsamai winning the match by securing a doubles win 8-3, when the match was tied at 2 singles matches each.
WBHS will defend the title next year and with the experience gained by the junior and B team players, it bodes well for the School’s tennis team.
