National Schools Badminton Championships : Round 1 – Trafford

This afternoon AGGS took on Flixton, Lostock, Stretford, and Sale Grammar in the first round of the National Schools Badminton Championships at Sale High School.
We had two U14s teams which were lavanya, Anusha, Jahnavi, Samyukatha,  and Alicia in the A team and Neave, Dristi, Harshitha, Nam, and Charlotte on the B team.
The two U16s teams were Natasha, Priya, Aisling, and Raavi on the A team and Georgia, Olivia, Maariyah and Sophie on the B team.

All teams played well with some outstanding performances.

Both the U16s teams were unbeaten scoring maximum points in their competitions. The A team beat Sale grammar 55:6, and beat Stretford 55:3. The B team beat Flixton 55:15, Stretford 55:13 and Sale Grammer 55:7. This meant that they had to play each other in the final! AGGS A team won 53:49 but both teams will go through to the next round.
