15 Nov Secondary Badminton Competition
The first event to take place was the combined year 7, 8 and 9 teams. There were 9 teams taking part. The competition started with three groups of three and then progressed to knock out rounds giving all teams a final position. The Coopers A team of Amelia Ngooi, Isabella Uzal, Chloe Brand and Ruby Foley were unbeaten and took the top spot. In the afternoon 7 teams competed in the older girls event. This time the competition started with two groups and again progressed to knock out rounds and a final. This time Coopers A had to play Coopers B in the final and despite the B team winning one rubber it was the A team of Chloe Taylor-Downes, Ella Madle, Grace Griffiths and Evie Smart who were crowned champions.
The last event was the older boys. Coopers A dominated all the way to the final. The other half of the competition was much tighter with Campion edging out Emerson Park A literally by a couple of points to reach the final. Despite Campion’s strongest endeavours the Coopers team of Liam Burton, Alex Chau, Callum Cheung and Anthony Weingarten took the title.
