Written by Julie Adamson, BOP Secondary School Events Director
Senior championships was exciting and very intense in some divisions. Senior division 1 boys had some tight ties and the boys skills were simply amazing with how they covered the court with speed and dynamics drop shots and smashes.
Tauranga Boys too strong for Bethlehem College to take the number team in the bop.
Girls division 1 was much closer than intended. Each tie in the girls division was intense and coaches were on the edge of their seats with every shot. The skill set of the athletes was at times intense to watch the agility of some of the players was dynamic.
Many winners on the day in all the divisions- honourable mentions Western heights High School, Edgecumbe College, Tauranga Girls College and Te Wharekura O Ruatoki, Whakatane High School taking away medals on the day. Well done to all athletes and coaches and teachers in charge the senior tournament this year was one of the closest tournaments between schools ever no one school dominated this event.
A big thank you to BOP Badminton personnel Tarryn and Del for running the tournament without the support of these two fantastic people school sport badminton would not be possible.
