Teign go through unbeaten
TEIGN School's keystage three's girls' badminton team has won another round of the Center Parcs National Schools Badminton Championships.
The five-strong team won all of their games in the league round at Newton Abbot Sports Centre in December, but had to use all their experience and determination to win the county round in the Sports Hub at Paignton.
The girls won all three of their matches, against Churston Ferrers, Plymstock and Kingsbridge, to earn their place in the final against Colyton.
Jenni York, Leanne York, Elise Harvey, Emma Coniam and Charlotte McKinley came out on top in the final.
