Last week was action-packed for TeamLeicestershire with KS3/4 boys and girls all competing to earn a spot into the next round. The order of the finals were played as followed:
- 4th March - KS3 Boys
- 5th March - KS3 Girls
- 6th March - KS4 Boys
- 7th March - KS4 Girls
Badminton KS3 Boys Newbridge High School earned the first Team Leicestershire win of the week.
It was a very tense first night for the KS3 boys badminton finals to witness. However all teams showed the upmost professionalism and enthusiasm.
In the end it was all to play for in the finals between Newbridge High School and Crown Hills Community College. However Newbridge were unbeatable, and for the third year running took home the trophy!
Badminton KS3 Girls Iveshead School showed great strength and technique to claim the second TeamLeicestershire Trophy of the week!
It all came to a nail biting three-way heated battle between , Iveshead School, Brookvale Groby Learning Campus and Priory Belvoir Academy.
The final was closely contested between Iveshead School and Brookvale Groby in the end, but Iveshead were on their winning streak and took the trophy.
The KS4 Boys Babington Academy dominated on day 3 of the TeamLeicestershire competition, beating King Edward VII College in the final round and taking the victory.
The last of the Team Leicestershire finals was played by the KS4 Girls, which saw Soar Valley College just miss out on a place in the final round, this meant it was all to play for between Babington Academy and King Edward VII College, but hosts Babington just had the edge and ended four days of action with the final victory.
On each of the night, everyone was handed a certificate for special recognition of all the individual's efforts to make it this far. A special thanks to Babington Academy, Carole Spencer, teachers from each participating school, family support and everyone else who helped.
The winning teams will now go on to represent Leicestershire at the regional round of the National Schools Competition, at Loughborough Leisure Centre on 16th March 2017.
