Success for U16 Badminton Team03 Feb 2017
The CBS Badminton teams did very well in their recent competitions. The more successful they become, the greater the challenges that lie ahead for the boys. Teams played at U19, U16A, U16B and U14 levels.
The U19 team Bevin Saiju, Michael Reddan, Brian Saiju and Jack Moore lost the final to Roscrea with the tightest of margins in their last doubles game, going out on a score of 21-20. This left the teams with a tally of three games apiece and the boys were unfortunate to lose out on the basis of aces scored by each team. While they were very disappointed they will be back next year feeling even stronger and looking to claim the U19 title
The U14s acquitted themselves well in spite of not having much time to cohere as a team. The boys who played together for the first time were Bartek Karpiak, Sean Duggan, Sonny Dower and Padraic Ferry.
The U 16 B team who came second in their group in hotly contested competition are Sergiu Mereacre, Mark Brennan, Billy Moran and Cian McInerney.
The U16A team, Conor Byrne, Amal Maharaj, Louie O’Carroll and Paul White Ryan retained three players from last years All Ireland winning team, Paul White Ryan joined the squad this year. They topped their group and beat Templemore in the final.
They then went forward as Tipperary champions to represent their home county in Munster Division One at University of Limerick on the 26th of January. They were again victorious, beating Waterford 5-1, Kerry 5-1 and Clare 4-2. Well done to the boys.
