On Thursday 30th March our U18 boys and girls badminton teams played in the County Finals. The boys team beat Gateway in their semi final and the girls beat De Lisle in theirs. Both teams then faced Loughborough Grammar School in their finals. The boys team won their final 6-2 which was played to an excellent standard to be crowned county champions. The girls tied their final 4-4 in a hard fought contest and unfortunately lost on count back of points to be runners up. A fantastic effort by all. Well done to Ethan Sheard, Billy Stevely, Keshav Gurung-Thapa, Charlie Slidel, Rachael Pawley, Martha Thomas, Mimi Bjelic and Gina Smith.
