Preston Schools’ Under 16 Badminton Competition

On Monday evening, 27th February, Our Lady’s hosted the Preston Schools’ Under 16 Badminton Competition.

Millie Lonergan, Erin Blackburn, Lucy Beesley, Lucy Monaghan and Nikita Fraser played in a mixture of both singles and doubles matches against Archbishop A, Archbishop B and Fulwood.

We had some very closely contested games with Millie Lonergan and Erin Blackburn beating a Fulwood doubles pair 11-5. Lucy Beesley and Lucy Monaghan had a convincing double win over Archbishop B also 11-5. Millie Lonergan had a tough singles game against Archbishop A’s number one ranked player and managed to win 11-8 thanks to some excellent smashes.

Finally, Nikita Fraser and Lucy Beesley beat an Archbishop 2 double pairing 11-4 thanks to some excellent serving by Lucy and some great drop shots over the net from Nikita.

Despite several good matches, it was not enough to win the competition and Our Lady’s finished fourth overall, but it was a great experience and the girls thoroughly enjoyed it. Good luck to the boys in their upcoming competition.
