Two Titles for McGeachy at Argyll & Bute Badminton Championships

Twenty eight pupils from Lochgilphead High School travelled to Oban last week to take part in the Argyll and Bute Schools Badminton Championship and returned to Mid Argyll with two trophies.

The LHS pupils competed in singles, doubles and mixed doubles competitions across three age groups and competed well against players from Oban, Dunoon, Hermitage and Campbeltown.

In the under 14s boys doubles competition, Alistair Cupples and his partner Gregor McGeachy earned a place in the final after some great performances throughout the day. The boys produced another excellent display in the final as they defeated a pairing from Dunoon Grammar School to take home the title.

Gregor McGeachy added to his own trophy haul in the under 14s mixed doubles competition when paired with Katie Todd. The LHS duo defeated two Oban High School competitors to seal another trophy for the school.

Organisers of the event felt that the standard of play was particularly high this year and all LHS participants must be proud of their performances. The pupils were a credit to the school and will have gained valuable experience from this competition.

Sumdog Maths Competition

Both S1 and S2 Maths classes of Miss Shaw and Mrs McGarry have been taking part in an Argyll & Bute Maths contest on the Sumdog mathematics website. The contest ran from 28th November to 4th December and during this period the pupils could log on and answer up to 1000 maths based questions. Both classes spent a full period doing this and had great fun. There were 38 classes from schools across the whole of Argyll and Bute taking part so competition to top the leaderboard was fiercely contested. Although narrowly missing out on the top spot, Mrs McGarry's class came a very creditable third overall and Miss Shaw's class following closely behind in fourth. Miss Shaw's class also topped the daily leader board on 3rd December as highest scoring class of that day. Best pupil from Lochgilphead Joint Campus was Fergus Weldon (S2) coming 7th overall
