In what is a good sign for the future of Sunshine Coast Table Tennis, junior players head the rankings in both division 1 and division 2 at the completion of fixture rounds this year.
In division 1, junior, Luke Thomson, finished with 38 wins which is 5 wins ahead of Seng Joo Keng (2nd spot) and 6 wins ahead of Alan Bruhn (3rd spot).
In division 2, young Dan Ettel had only one loss for the season with 29 wins with Dale Parkes (25 wins) and Mike Rogers (22 wins) filling the minor places.
In addition there is a very talented year 5 student, Taha Khan, showing good style and potential to burn and improving every week. Division 2 player, Matt Old, is another young player on the up.
On the female side, Jayde Treloar, despite being busy with year 12, has continued to show heaps of ability and has maintained her top 10 ranking in Queensland.
We are losing an improving junior, Jan Thielen, who is renowned for a lethal serve. Jan has been on a student exchange from Germany. Best wishes to Jan and hoping you enjoyed your 6 months in Australia.
On the other hand there are heaps of accomplished and determined old timers who certainly are not going to roll over – Ken Hay, Martin Tribe, Ian Oakley, Gordon Holden etc etc. etc
