On the first day of competition, the team won three out of four matches, only losing to the team that they would meet again in the finals.
The pressure was on for the second day but the girls responded well; working as a team to beat, yet another school before proceeding to the semi-finals against Mont Kiara International School (MKIS). The semi-finals were intense but the girls refused to succumb to the pressure and emerged as victors.
Despite the score in the finals, the competition was tantalisingly close against United World College South East Asia - East (UWCSEA). Although disappointed in losing in the final, the girls were pleased to have exceeded their personal targets and walked away with an enormous trophy as First Runners-Up.
The standard of badminton from all teams throughout the competition was extremely high. The girls’ showed impressive team work and sportsmanship throughout the competition. Three of the members won Most Valuable Players awards – Joyce Tan, Su Khi Wei and Sue Yee Lee. Team members – Joyce Tan, Su Khi Wei and Debbie Chung (singles) Jia Ying Gan/ Sue Yee Lee and Su Hwa Wei/Tania Bhattacharya (doubles pairs).
We hope to continue and improve in next year’s competition.
