The SHSAA re­gion A bad­minton cham­pi­onships were held Satur­day, May 6 in Swift Cur­rent. Spe­cial thanks to com­mis­sioner Janna Walker and the Swift Cur­rent Comp. for host­ing. Also thanks to Tr­ish Car­leton for help­ing at the scor­ing desk. There were six teams in each cat­e­gory – girls sin­gles, boys sin­gles, girls doubles, boys doubles and mixed doubles. There were two teams from Regina Dis­trict, two teams from South Cen­tral Dis­trict and two teams from SWAC. The for­mat was a six­team round robin with the top two ad­vanc­ing to provin­cials.

Amanda had a record of one win, four losses to fin­ish fifth, while Cas­san­dra had two wins, three losses to fin­ish fourth. Nei­ther will ad­vance. The win­ner was Cindy Chung from Regina O’neill (50).

BOYS DOUBLES: Car­son Leach and Jor­dan Mas­tel from Leader fin­ished third with a record of three wins, two losses. Since the sec­ond place team from Regina could not ad­vance, Jor­dan and Car­son will now be at­tend­ing provin­cials. The Fox Val­ley duo of Aden Hudec/pa­trick Eh­nisz fin­ished fourth at two wins, three losses. The win­ner of the event was Thomas Lowe/louis Kwok from Regina Luther.

MIXED DOUBLES: The mixed doubles proved to be quite a log­jam as five of the six teams had records of 3-2 and were all tied for first! Af­ter do­ing the math cal­cu­la­tions, the team from Grav­el­bourg, Ryan Boire and Is­abelle Piche, were de­clared the champs. Fin­ish­ing in sec­ond was Re­becca Chou and Ni­cholas Eh­nisz from Fox Val­ley. The other SWAC team was Ben Du­mon­tel/jyl­lian Kali­ciak who fin­ished sixth with a record of 0-5.
