Year 7 & 8 Badminton

The Year 7 & 8 girls played Interschool Sport badminton competition representing Collingwood College last Wednesday. Six girls were selected from each year group. They played singles and doubles matches on the day against Pascoe Vale Girls College and ILIM College.


Year 7 

The girls won 2 singles and lost 2 singles games so tied on equal games with Pascoe Vale Girls College. This meant that the doubles match counted for the overall match win for the day. Our girls fought hard throughout their games but lost narrowly in the doubles and therefore finished runners up on the day. All the girls (Yr 7 and 8) sat on the sidelines cheering every point played in the doubles match.



Year 8

The Yr 8 girls only lost 1 match throughout the whole day. The match that was lost was lost 21-19 and 22-20. The girls all played an absolute ‘blinder’ and represented Collingwood College well throughout the whole competition. Their support for each other was a pleasure to watch. They now go through to the next round of the competition.


I AM VERY PROUD of our competitors and was given some excellent feedback from the other schools staff for our girls sportsmanship and excellent facilities.
