Having won 3 gold, 2 silver and 2 bronze medals the weekend before, GIS walked into ISAC Badminton with high spirits. We brought a girls and a boys team for division 1 & 2 each, with players ageing from 9 to 17 years.
The day started off challenging with an unfortunate setback for the girls as their top seeded singles player fell sick and another 2 were away at netball. Determined, the senior girls stayed positive and fought valiantly; managing to defend their ISAC Champions title for the 7th consecutive year! The senior boys fought equally as hard, but the loss of 6 key players and lack of experience saw them lose out narrowly on a medal to come 4th.
The Division 2 team walked into the court beaming; their enthusiasm was worthwhile as the girls clinched the silver medal whilst the boys secured a bronze!
The 6th of March brought out tears, sweat and laughter from all players; it undoubtedly made the Dragons badminton team more cohesive as a whole. On behalf of the team, I would like to thank Coach Alvin & Mei for all their hard work to make us better players.
