Badminton Stars

6th December 2016

Tuesday, 6th December, saw 16 Manor Croft students head over to St John Fisher and Westborough High Schools to compete in the u14 and u16 Kirklees Schools Badminton qualifiers.  It was the first time that Manor Croft had entered teams in the event so the 8 boys and 8 girls that made up the teams were unsure about what to expect. They needn't have worried as they all performed brilliantly and were more than a match for many of the schools competing.  The students, from Years 9-11, displayed excellent skill, teamwork and composure in all of their match ups, both Mr Wallis and Miss Jones were really proud of their achievements.  The final rankings were - U16 Boys 4th, U16 Girls 2nd, U14 Boys 2nd, U14 Girls 2nd.  The Under 14 Boys also qualified for the Kirklees Schools Finals to be held in Huddersfield in January. Well played Team MCA!!
