Mr GREG PIPER (Lake Macquarie)—I'd like to congratulate 18-year-old Eddie Westfall from Morisset High School who recently took out the gold medal in the NSW State Open Boys Tennis Championships. Eddie was the top-ranked player in the Hunter team which remained undefeated during the State Carnival held at Wagga Wagga in August. While Eddie has long been known for his phenomenal talent, his unwavering dedication to tennis this year must be considered in concert with the fact he's also completing the HSC and is a Year 12 Big Picture Learning Australia student. Eddie is extremely well regarded by both teaching staff and peers and is known as a quiet achiever who is always quick to encourage and support others. After the State Carnival, Eddie's coach said that he represented Morisset High School and the Hunter Region with honour, demonstrating amazing skills, sportsmanship and teamwork on the court. Off the court, he demonstrated impeccable manners, maturity beyond his years, resilience and a sense of responsibility. I congratulate Eddie on his achievements so far and I look forward to seeing where his talent takes him next.
