Lachlan serves up a first for Emerald Tennis Club
FOR the first time in the Emerald Tennis Club's history, one of their own is an age champion.
Lachlan Vickery, 11, took out his age group at the Queensland Junior Development series finals in Rockhampton at the weekend.
Representing Central Queensland, Lachlan took on the best the state has to offer and triumphed, putting a smile on his father Glenn's face.
"He played really well, and is the first Emerald junior to ever win an age group," Glenn, the head coach of Emerald Tennis, said. "I am very proud of his efforts, not only his performance but his mental side as well."
"His team-mate Briannah MacNab was very unlucky but played well in the end to finish mid-table."
Lachlan qualified to represent CQ for a third straight year after an undefeated showing at the Junior Masters in Gladstone.
Briannah made the team for the first time but her luck ran out in Rockhampton where she stood on a ball, rolling her ankle.
