Ethan Alcock and Evan Alcock finished first in the junior boys’ doubles competition while Kamryn Horvath and Bady Krentz were second in the junior mixed doubles and Emma Tomchuk and Amber Miscavish were second in the junior girls doubles. Junior badminton is recognized as an official sport by the Manitoba High Schools Athletic Association for the first time this year, which means these seven athletes will compete at junior badminton provincials in Winkler on the first weekend of May.

RDPC also captured both the junior and senior Zone 11 banners based upon the combined points of all their players competing at the zone championships.
