Badminton players bring home the silver

Tuesday 11 August saw five students competing in the Auckland SecondarySchools Individuals and Doubles Badminton Championships.

Jessie Lin and Amanda Ting (Year 9) competed in the Junior Singles, Katie Duffy and Sharon Meng (Year 10) in the Junior Doubles, and Yvonne Ting (Year 12) in the Senior Singles. Jessie and Amanda both played some amazing matches, however unfortunately did not make it through the round robin stages into the finals. Yvonne finished 3rd in her event, which saw her come up against the newly crowned Womens Singles National Champion.

Katie and Sharon (pictured together above) had some convincing wins against Rangitoto College and Lynfield College, then came up against Macleans College, losing 31-13 to finish with a silver medal.

Overall, it was a wonderful day  with some great matches played, where our students represented our school with pride.
