PRINCE GEORGE, B.C. – The North Peace Secondary School badminton team was in action this weekend playing in the Northern Zones at Duchess Park Secondary School in Prince George.

A previous article mentioned that the team won all of their opening games but did not make the critical round of play due to not having the minimum number of players required to play, but the teams assistant coach Jennie Copeland corrected the information explaining that the team did in fact travel with less students then the required minimum of ten, but did not drop in the critical as the team won all three of their opening games.

On the second day of the tournament the team lost one match of six against the first place team in the tournament, and two matches of six to the third place team in the tournament. The team finished fourth place out of eight teams.

The NPSS track and field team was also in action as they held their first practice meet at the Pomeroy Sport Centre. The meet included schools from the Fort St. John and Dawson Creek area.

The meet was held to prepare the students for their upcoming zones meet on May 15th in Quesnel.
