SD&G badminton championships
Silver lining for Williams, Steele

CORNWALL – Jarrett Williams and Katherine Steele cruised through the field compiling an undefeated record until they reached the gold medal match in the 2017 SD&G senior badminton championships.

The duo from North Dundas District High School ran into a strong Grade 12 mixed double’s team from St. Joe’s in the title match and emerged as silver medalists. That result qualifies Williams and Steele for a berth in the EOSSAA tournament, which will be held in Casselman on Tues., April 25. 

Coach Cheryl Williams said the medal winners work well together and support each other. Because they are Grade 11 students, the coach is hoping they can go for the gold next year.
