Ryan Hogan (Carrig) and George Harding (Lorrha) created history by winning the first ever Munster juvenile title for Gurteen badminton Club in UL Limerick recently. In what was going to be a great day for the Club Ryan teamed up with Alexandra Troy (Broadford BC)in mixed doubles to lift gold again and a second Munster title. In the singles George and Ryan battled through a field of 18 players and after some very close matches both emerged as finalists. After 5 hours of badminton George and Ryan faced each other in the final match. As neither player wanted to concede defeat this proved to be the best match of the competition with both players showing great skill and energy. Once again Ryan emerged victorious on a 21-19 score line and complete the treble with his 3rd title on the day. Well done to both boys.
