Ibstock Girls are KS3 County Champions!

Ibstock Community College have been crowned champions in the Leicestershire Schools League KS3 Girls county badminton finals which were held at Babington College on 7th March 2016. The girls had already won the North West Leicestershire league to earn a place in the final.

Isobel Pike (Year 8), Evie Pike (Year 7), Niamh Elliott (Year 9) and Katy Evans (Year 9) played for more than three hours to secure the win.

The Ibstock girls recorded wins against John Ferneley, Kibworth, Sir Jonathan North and Soar Valley schools, not dropping a single game along the way. Things got closer facing Wigston Academy in the semi-finals but the girls managed a 4-1 win before facing Humphrey Perkins school in what was to be a closely fought final, eventually taking the deciding doubles match 21 – 20 to clinch the match and the overall title.

They will now represent Leicestershire in the regional finals to be held in Loughborough on 22nd March.
