Hawick & District Primary School Championship (2014)

Hawick & District primary schools held their annual badminton competition at Hawick High School games hall on Sunday, 30 March, 2014.

The initial stage of the well attended tournament was played in round robin pools with 21 girls placed into four pools and 7 boys placed in a single pool. 

Two girls from each of the girls pools progressed to the quarter-final knockout stage. In the girls quarter-finals Mia Presslie (Denholm) beat Louisa Goldie (Drumlanrig) 21-15; Amber Malcolm (Stirches) beat Phoebe Gale (Denholm) 21-2; Sophie Mitchell (Newcastleton) beat Connie Richards (Denholm) 21-5 and Lily Towers (Denholm) beat Sarah Murphy-Clark (Stirches) 21-5. Amber Malcolm beat Mia Presslie 21-4 in the first semi-final and Sophie Mitchell beat Lily Towers 21-8 in the second semi-final.

The final of the girls competition was contested between Amber Malcolm and Sophie Mitchell. Despite a spirited performance by Sophie with some hard fought, long rallies, Amber went on to win the final match 21-5, 21-5. Congratulations to Amber Malcolm for winning the girls competition and to both girls for serving up a cracking girls final.

In the boys competition four boys progressed from the pool games to the semi-final knockout stage. Martin Goldie (Drumlanrig) beat Sam Allott (Denholm) 21-12 in the first semi-final and Beck Malcolm (Stirches) beat Connor Mitchell (Newcastleton) 21-11 in the second semi-final. The final was contested between Martin Goldie and Beck Malcolm. Despite his best efforts Beck found it hard to cope with the powerful smashes and well executed drop shots produced by Martin throughout the final and Martin won the final 21-6, 21-3. Congratulations to Martin Goldie for winning the boys competition and to both boys for giving the spectators an exciting boys final.
 
Both Amber and Martin have continued to develop at the sport this season and Martin is part of the Borders U12 team that has participated in inter area tournaments. The coaches would like to thank Roxburgh Sports Council for the 200 funding that Martin received this season to help with his travel expenses.

Denholm took the team award. After the finals, Colin Blaikie gave the vote of thanks and the prizes were presented by Nancy Morrison. The winners and runners up received rackets courtesy of BADMINTONscotland with the winners rackets signed by the 2014 Scotland Team.

The coaches would like to thank everyone that scored games throughout the day and Hawick High School for the use of the hall. The coaches would also like to thank all the parents and friends who came along to support the tournament.
