Badminton – Primary School National Championships

Well done to Abigail Barrie (P5) and Laura Broadley (P7) who recently competed at the Primary School National Championships in Perth, having qualified from the Highland Championship.

Abigail, who qualified after being runner-up in the Highland tournament, played in the singles and did extremely well. After winning all her first round pool games she went on to win through to the quarters by defeating the Highland Champion!  She was unfortunately put out at the semi-final stage,  but, WOW, what a fabulous achievement for such a young player competing against girls much older than her!

Laura joined Abigail in the afternoon for the doubles tournament.  Abigail and Laura gave a good account of themselves by winning 3 of their 4 games to finish second in the pool and place them in the top 10 for the main knockout competition.  Although they did not progress any further they put up a very good fight, losing by a narrow margin.

Well done Abigail & Laura, Lochardil are very proud of you!
