Congratulations to both Under 14’s and Under 19’s badminton teams from Preston Lodge High School, who participated in the Scottish Schools Badminton Championships in Cumbernauld on Tuesday 2nd March. All pupils were a credit to Preston Lodge and performed with enthusiasm, effort and skill.
The Under 14’s team did well, winning all but one of there pool matches. In the play-off games they finished in overall 4th place.
In a heroic effort our Under 19’s team played with true Preston Lodge spirit. Preston Lodge took an unbeaten record into the final by defeating some high quality opponents in the pool stages. The senior members of the team new this was their last chance of glory, as they are leaving school in June. This determination filtered through the whole team and in a dramatic final overcame Mackie Academy 3-2.
What makes this win even more impressive is that the team consisted of six of the players who won last years Under 14 title. A huge congratulations to everyone involved for their immaculate behaviour and for victory in the Under 19’s Scottish Schools Championships.
