Katie Kirby, 3rd Year

Having successfully competed in the Waterford and Munster match play, I qualified for the National match play competition which comprises qualifiers from the four provinces.

I was seeded five, and in the first round I defeated Niamh McCormack 6-1. In the quarter final, I played Laura Fitzgerald. This was a very challenging match as I was 3-0 down in the first set and 4-2 down in the second set. Thankfully I managed to win 6-4 7-5.

My semi-final match was equally challenging, and     I found myself a set down, but managed to win the second set and the deciding tie break to reach the final. In the final I played and beat Eimear Maher 6-4 6-2, while the score did not reflect the closeness of the match.

As a consequence I finished in first position in the 2013 winter national match plays.
