The team dominated the year 9 and 10 tournament in Nelson last week, going undefeated through to the final where they beat Shirley Boys’ High School 82-59. Coach Nev Brooker said the team finished fourth at the tournament 12 months ago with eight year 9s and three year 10s, so to come back and win the following year was a SPORTS SHOOT: The St Thomas’ junior basketball team went unbeaten on their way to the South Island title. PHOTO: NEV BROOKER.​ South Island title worth the wait CANTERBURY’S No 2 ranked tennis player Dylan Heap has returned from France where he polished his ground strokes with former world No 10 and French Davis Cup captain Arnaud Clement. The seven-week trip also gave the 18-year-old Waimairi player’s valuable match experience, playing in many prestigious open tournaments during the northern hemisphere summer. In all, he played 25 matches, winning 19, and winning three tournaments in the process - the Rogne, great feeling. “We felt we could have done better last year but this year we were amazing,” he said. The school faced some challenges. In the semifinal they trailed Nelson’s Waimea College heading into the fourth quarter. “They had a player, Josh Book, who scored 35 points in the first half but in the second we made some adjustments and he only managed 13 points which helped us get back into the game,” Brooker said. St Thomas’ fought back to win the semi-final 88- 81. Tanae Lavery, Hunter Adam and Tautahi Briggs combined for 88 points in the win. The trio then travelled to Invercargill for the senior tournament. Brooker said his teams’ superior three-point shooting was invaluable as was their ability to not worry about the officiating and just play their own game. “The boys stuck to their task well and came away with the result which showed how talented they were.” Learning from the best Auriol and Ventabren opens. Heap said his time with Clement was invaluable. “It was such a stepup on hitting balls in Christchurch and he was so humble,” he said. “He told me to make sure I keep my passion for the sport as I progress, even during the tough time.” Based in Aix-en- Provence and playing at the Country Club Aixois, he enjoyed the challenge of practising with Clement and playing many friendly matches with a multitude of strong up-and-coming French tennis players aged between 16 and 25-yearsold. Heap, a year 13 student at Christ’s College, loved the chance to play some great tennis and to beat many players above his level. “I definitely benefited from the experience, which was awesome, and can’t wait to do it all again next July,” he said. Heap spent the first three weeks in France in the company of his parents, and the last three with his Waimairi club coach and fellow member of the premier team Remi Feneon. Dylan was NZ national under-16 singles and doubles champion for the last two seasons.
