Two teams for Monk’s Walk School in Welwyn Garden City have become the ‘king of the strings’ – by claiming district titles in badminton.
The Knightsfield-based secondary school took the crowns in the U14 and U16 boy’s competitions, held at Sir Frederic Osborn School.
They were both up against three other schools, the hosts, Stanborough and Onslow St Audrey’s, and amazingly managed to win every single one of their matches.
The success now means they will go on to the county finals, which are taking place on Tuesday, December 5 at the Hertfordshire Sports Village.
Finley Goode, Ben Crooks, Morgan Hume and Joel Weaver made up the U14 side while the U16s consisted of Ollie Youell, Ollie Green, Aidan Lovett and Callum Burr.
