Local girls excel

Two young Lismore girls, Zoe Devlin and Stella McWilliams, have had outstanding results over the recent school holidays.

Zoe Devlin, a member of the 10 and under North Coast girls team, won the State Carnival at Cessnock. Zoe was number two in the team and was undefeated in singles and doubles. This is the first time the North Coast has won a State Carnival. Zoe followed this success with a win in the girls doubles in Sydney at the NSW Age Titles.

Meanwhile, Stella McWilliams played two tournaments and was successful in both. In the first week of the holidays Stella won her age group at the Miama Tournament then followed it up with a win in Lismore last weekend in the Summerland Age Titles. Great results for both girls and a great sign for the future of Lismore tennis.
