Congratulations to the badminton team on a fantastic season!! The team played last night in the playoffs against 1st place in Oakville, JW Hill. We tied them with 12 matches each! Unfortunately, there had to be a tie breaker and we fell just short in point differential. Miss Conway is extremely proud of how well you played and how much improvement she saw over the course of the season! GO PANTHERS!
