Ulster Badminton Finals
On Friday 4 March three Sullivan teams qualified to play in the Ulster Finals. This was a great achievement.
In the morning the Senior Boys team of Joe Heatley , Benn Cuthbert, Connor Trimble and Chris Cree played Royal and Prior in the final of the Cup. Despite some close games the boys lost against strong opposition.
At the same time the Year 8 Girls were involved in their Cup Final against Friends. This was a rematch of the final of a tournament earlier in the year where we were victorious in a very close match. Hannah Boyd, Sarah Baker, Lucy Cunningham and Rachel White competed in singles and doubles again in a close match. The doubles ended one each and the singles were close with the final result this time going to Friends 4-2. The standard of play for year 8 was very high and the decision was made on the closest of margins with one set finishing 21-20.
Finally the Junior Girls played in the afternoon against Bloomfield for the Division 2 league. Hannah Boyd in Year 8 was playing up alongside Erin Camlin. Ella Thompson and Jenna McKearney. This also proved to be a hard fought final, and in the end it was a 3-3 draw. However, Bloomfield won on sets, two of which on the day we lost 21-20.
Sadly it proved just not to be our day despite some great matches.
