Forster Public School's tennis team proved its skills were among the best in the State by finishing third at the NSW PSSA Victor J Kelly Trophy.
Accompanied by teacher and team manager Natalie Galle, Finn McDonagh, Hendrix McDonagh, Maxim Ceccato, Reeya Joon and Lexie Lees travelled to Sydney Olympic Park for the competition and progressed all the way to the final day.
They faced Gunnedah Public School in the semi-finals, but despite playing some superb tennis, were unable to beat the eventual runners-up.
They then faced Castle Hill's Excelsior Public School in a play-off for third place and were successful this time, winning the match five sets to three on the back of an excellent performance.
