Badminton players put on a promising display as part of a tournament with other city schools.
Members of the Under 16s Badminton Girls’ team - Emma Deakin, Kiran Bhangoo, Surina Patel and Maria Paul - finished in joint 5th place out of 10 schools in the SSAW tournament, held at St Peter’s School.
Days later, members of the Under 14s Girls’ team - Molly McGarry, Lucy Evans, Lauren Phillips and Emily Gibson - took 5th place out of 13 teams in the U14 tournament.
PE teacher, Miss G Robinson, said: “There was some nail biting badminton played. The girls were up against tough competition but our teams never lost heart.
“The girls did exceptionally well and did Highfields proud. Our players are now back in training and looking forward to the next competition.”
