Four Owls off to NWOSSAs this week
By Ken Johnston
Rainy River High School’s Badminton team brought home gold and silver medals from NORWOSSA competitions last Wednesday.
Sisters, Skylar and Hayley Arpin won gold in Senior Girls Doubles. They went undefeated (5-0) and never gave up more than eight points in a match.
Kendra Moen and Brayden Kreger won silver in Junior Mixed Doubles. They finished 4-1.
All four Owls will travel to Wawa, Ont. this Wednesday to compete in NWOSSAs. Only senior level players can advance to the All Ontario championships. The Arpins will have to finish in top two to do that.
For Moen and Kreger they can win NWOSSA gold but that will mark the end of their season.
Also competing at NORWOSSAS were the following, Bethany Sinninghe and Madison Brown (Jr. Girls Singles), Morgan Haw and Calli Vandenbrand (Jr. Girls Doubles), Chase Jackson and Chase Anderson (Jr. Boys Doubles) and Myan Miller and Zac Tolen (Sr. Mixed Doubles).
All Ontarios are scheduled for May 1-3, 2014 in Markham, Ont.
