College Girls Complete Badminton Double!

For the 2nd year running, the MCSS College Girls Badminton team have been crowned ACT College Champions!

Off the back of the 2017 victory, there was only one change to the team of 6, with Naomi Kendall coming in to join Tram Nguyen, Cindy Nguyen, Sophie Nguyen, Kasey Nguyen and Amy Jian. 

The girls did not lose a match the entire day, going through the group phase undefeated, before taking on Gungahlin College in the final, comprehensively winning 8-1.

Congratulations to the girls on a fantastic effort. Hopefully MCSS can complete the treble in 2019.
