This 6’0” boys singles player is undefeated on the year heading into the Provincial Championships this weekend. He won the zone 2 league and placed first at the Louis Riel tournament. Coach Jack Durand states, “James is an exceptional individual and athlete. His dedication is remarkable as he is always striving to improve his game, but always has time to help others get better. He not only attends Varsity badminton practices but he also attends all of our JV practices as well to help mentor our young athletes”. In grade 12, he maintains an average of 80%, while also participating in cross-country and track & field.
