The ADSS Armada headed down to Victoria on May 8 to participate in the Island Badminton Championship at St. Michael’s University.

In their first match they faced the top seeded team, Mount Douglas. There were several close matches, but Mount Doug eventually won 9-2.

In their second match they faced the fourth seeded team, Oak Bay High.  There were many exciting matches, but Oak Bay was able to eke out a win 6-5, narrowly eliminating the Armada from the bronze medal match.

Jesse Law was the top Armada player as he went undefeated in the tournament in both Boys’ Singles, and in Mixed Doubles with his partner Makenna Cyr.

Mackenzie Berry and newcomer Chelsey Charlesworth had success in Girls’ Doubles, as did Maho Nakamura and Tiffany McCarthy.

Elson Wong and Mark Wang had a win in Boys’ Doubles.

The team had a great season and are sad to see grade 12s Makenna Cyr and Eric Newton graduate.  They would like to thank their coach Larry Spencer and the local sponsors who made the season possible; Probyn Logging, Joswey’s Furniture, Shannon Dairy, Alberni Jr. Badminton, and Alberni Sr. Badminton.
