STUDENTS:  Were you the King or Queen of The Hill in your PE class in Badminton? Did you master all the skills that Mr. McNeil or Ms. McCluskey taught you? Do you have the urge to get out there and compete against the absolute best? Well, here's your chance.  Monday afternoon, from 3:30-5:30 pm in Spec gym you have the opportunity to show that you still have it. For the low cost of $3 per game you can play against one of the fantastic badminton girls on the Freshman, JV or Varsity teams to see how your mad skills stack up.  Better yet, if you should happen to win the game, you get a dollar back. You can play singles or doubles games. Grab some friends and make a plan to head on down to Spec gym Monday after school to challenge the badminton team players..... Let's see how good you really are!
