This week was the final week for the girls' School Games Badminton League. The four Oakwood girls had one final game, a crunch match, against the also unbeaten Bitterne C of E. The winners of the 3 game match would be crowned champions.
Millie lost the opening game 7-9 in a back and forth encounter. This meant Oakwood needed to win both the remaining games to claim a victory. Zahra and Holly then took to the court and stormed to a 9-3 win. With the tie now poised at 1-1, all the pressure fell on Millie... She was fantastic! A 9-3 win clinched the match 2-1 and Oakwood girls were crowned City Champions in girls Badminton. Holding on the title won last year.
Well done girls!!!
