Sheffield High badminton team wins bronze at the nationals
The Sheffield High School Under-16 badminton team is celebrating after winning bronze medals at the the National Schools Championships Finals at Center Parcs recently!
The team, consisting of Eleanor Crowther (Year 10), Beth Keel (Year 11), Trishna Kurian (Year 11) and Olivia Noble (Year 11) qualified for the top three play-offs with first round group 3-2 victories over The Kingswinford School, Dudley, West Midlands and Royal Grammar School in Newcastle.
In the second round, after a 0-5 defeat to The Brunts Academy, Mansfield, they lost 2-3 to eventual winners South Wiltshire Grammar School, Salisbury to take bronze medals for their third place finish in the country. This is an amazing feat, especially when you consider that 6140 schools badminton teams entered these championships with over 30,700 Key Stage 3 pupils (ages 11 to 13) and Key Stage 4 pupils (ages 13 to 16) participating overall.
There was icing on the cake for Olivia who also achieved a special award for recording the fastest smash by a girl at the championships – 78mph! She was awarded a racquet worth £150!
