High School Badminton
The CCHS badminton season was once again short and sweet this past season.
With only one week after our Spring Break to finalize teams and prepare for the CISAA HS Badminton Tournament was a real challenge. The small but talented team this year saw virtually every player score points for the individual and team event.
Nolan won Gold in the Sr. Boys Singles category, that was full of tough competitors, with a calm confidence that was a pleasure to watch. Jadan and Zach also took home the Gold Medal. After pool play concluded they thoroughly established themselves as the front runners and won the Mixed Doubles category with great teamwork and strong complimentary skills.
Jonathan and Dave took the Bronze Medal in the Sr. Boys Doubles. A great result for only coming together as team one week before the tournament! All of the following teams finished 4th out of 12-14 schools represented. Also noteworthy considering the short season, limited practice time and dominance in their respective pool play. Monica R / Hymn K (Junior Girls Doubles), Austen P / Danaka F ( Junior Mixed Doubles), Noelle K / Jonah B (Senior Mixed Doubles), Adam O (Sr. Boys Doubles). Drake P (Senior Boys Singles) finished 6th and Riley H (Junior Boys Singles) finished 7th.
Great results COUGARS!The Calgary Zone Badminton Challenge goes on Friday, April 26 @ Crescent Heights HS and ASAA Badminton Provincials are on May 3,4 here in Calgary. Coach - Kevin Francisco
