Beaconhurst girls’ tennis squad have won the Scottish final of the British Tennis Schools Championship.

The team decisively beat rivals Strathallan School in every single match during the final earlier this month.

The girls will now travel to Sunderland in November for the next round of the annual AEGON Team Tennis competition – the North of Britain final.

Judith Ramsay, Beaconhurst’s director of sport, was delighted with the girls’ performance in the Year 10 age group.

She said: “It was a great day of tennis and the girls all worked hard. They are a real credit to the school.

“It was just fantastic to see them win every match and we’re now looking forward to the next round of the contest.

“They’re all continuing to train hard and will make sure they are ready to take on the three teams they’ll face in the North of Britain final.”

The winning team was made up of captain Jodie McLelland, Abbie Kerr, Kirsty Robertson and Rosie Sterk.

Maia Montgomerie and Dunblane tennis ace Andy Murray’s 13-year-old cousin Cora Erskine were also part of the squad as reserves.

In the first round of the final, Jodie won her game 6-1 while Abbie beat her opponent 6-0.

Kirsty and Rosie both won their games 6-1 and then Jodie and Rosie played in the first doubles match where they also won 6-1.

In the second doubles match of the day, Abbie and Kirsty beat the Strathallan girls by six games to nil.

Beaconhurst will be up against teams from three North of England schools when they travel to November’s final. If successful, they will then head to the national final of the prestigious UK-wide contest in Bolton, Lancashire in December.
