WILMSLOW High School’s senior boys team finished runners up in the Aegon Tennis Finals in Bolton.
Putting the achievement into perspective, the team of Mike Armstrong, James Graham, Ollie Dixon and Adam Robison finished second in the country out of 300 schools.
The first match of the finals was against Wiltshire’s Bishop Wordsworth, who managed to get the victory in a nail-biting tie break.
After a ‘regroup’ the boys played St Peter’s of York and put in some fantastic individual performances, resulting in a 5-1 victory.
The next morning the last group match was against Culford School from Suffolk.
Again, some superb tennis saw the Wilmslow boys win 4-2 and go through as group winners, courtesy of having won more sets than any other school.
In the final they faced Truro College, the defending champions who had been fairly untroubled in any of their previous three matches.
However, with just the final game to play the matches stood at 3-2 to Truro.
Armstrong was to face their number one seed and highest ranked player in the competition in what proved to be an amazing last match.
The standard was phenomenal, with Armstrong unfortunately losing out in a tight tie break.
