What was happened in the first week of May of this year? Take a moment…what comes to mind?

I’m not talking about AP Exams…that would be a fun article to write (yeah-no). I’m talking about Collingwood’s very own badminton team competing in the North Shore playoffs…for the first time in 10 years!

Though their playoff run didn’t last long, under the coaching of Mr. Ho, Mr. Yip, and Mr. Lussier, this year’s badminton team, led by Erin Huang and Alexis Ong, has had quite the year. In addition to making the North Shores, they also defeated Mulgrave “for the first time in forever which was a huge deal”, as Alexis Ong vividly described.

But the losses this year were also important. Prior to the start of the season this year’s seniors competed in a tournament at Port Moody Secondary against some of the top teams in the province. Though the ‘L’ was inevitable at this one, they certainly came out better players.

Looking ahead, the badminton team hopes to use the momentum of ending their playoff drought to fuel success in future years. With talented younger members like Jacqui Kelly and Joanna Zheng to lead the way, the team is still in good hands.

So all in all, congratulations to this year’s team…and wishing you all best of luck next year!
