Badminton Black Country Games Finals
Yesterday, students from George Salter attended the Badminton Black Country Games Finals. Having already beaten all the Sandwell teams, they knew this level would be a step up and a big challenge.
After some very intense and close matches the U14 Girls finished 2nd, the U16 Girls finished 2nd and the U16 Boys finished 3rd. A fantastic achievement considering some of the pupils in the competition played for England.
Well done to all pupils who took part!
