Hawick & District Primary School Championship (2015)

Hawick & District primary schools held their annual badminton competition at Hawick High School games hall on Sunday, 26 April, 2015.

The initial stage of the well attended tournament was played in round robin pools with 11 girls and 12 boys placed into pools. 

Following the pool games the top 8 players in each event progressed to the quarter final knockout stage. In the girls quarter finals Sky Higley (Denholm) beat Louisa Goldie (Drumlanrig) 15-4; Chloe Blaikie (Drumlanrig) beat Poppie Gibson (Stirches) 15-7; Samantha Wallace (Stirches) beat Esther Presley (Denholm) 15-6 and Sarah Murphy-Clark (Stirches) beat Eilidh Garden (Stirches) 15-7. Chloe Blaikie beat Sky Higley 21-14 in the first semi final and Sarah Murphy-Clark beat Samantha Wallace 24-22 in the second semi final.

The final of the girls competition was contested between Chloe Blaikie and Sarah Murphy-Clark. Despite a spirited performance by Chloe, Sarah went on to win the final match 21-19, 21-12. Congratulations to Sarah Murphy-Clark for winning the girls competition and to both girls for serving up a cracking girls final.

In the boys quarter finals Martin Goldie (Drumlanrig) beat Aiden Middlemass (Stirches) 15-1; Samuel Middlemass (Stirches) beat Sam Allott (Denholm) 15-13; Beck Malcolm (Stirches) beat Lewis Smith (Newcastleton) 15-10 and Connor Mitchell (Newcastleton) beat Charlie Bain (Stirches) 15-8. Martin Goldie beat Samuel Middlemass 21-4 in the first semi final and Beck Malcolm beat Connor Mitchell 21-10 in the second semi final. The final was a re-run of last years final and 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 21-4, 21-2. Congratulations to Martin Goldie for winning the boys competition and to both boys for giving the spectators an exciting boys final.
 
Both Sarah and Martin have continued to develop at the sport this season and Martin has had success in other tournaments this season, winning the Kelso primary tournament and reaching the semi finals of the Duns Primary and Borders Primary tournaments. Martin is also part of the Borders U12 squad and has participated in inter area tournaments.

Stirches took the team award. After the finals, Colin Blaikie gave the vote of thanks and the prizes were presented by Borders squad member Sophie Mitchell. The winners each received a racket and runners up each received a drinks bottle courtesy of BADMINTONscotland.

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.
