Badminton: Kovsies rule the national students championships
2006-04-11

Kovsies' badminton players again, as in the past few years, rule the national students championships currently being presented in Pretoria by TUT and UP.

 The men, Chris Dednam, Roelof Dednam, Wiaan Viljoen and Raymond Ronne, had no other serious competition and were left to each other's rivalry.  Especially Roelof Dednam performed excellent by surprisingly going through to the finals in beating Viljoen in the singles, and with Elaine Lues also Chris Dednam and Liansa Coetzee in the mixed doubles.

 In the absence of Annari Viljoen (injured) and Sone Strauss (retired), the less experienced girls, Liansa Coetzee and Lizl Janse van Rensburg, had to uphold the Kovsie name.  They performed excellent by taking third and fourth positions.

In the team competition which now takes place,  Kovsies should make a clean sweep.

It is a pity that, through financial restraints, Kovsies players will not in October strengthen the SASSU team to the world student championships in China.

Men's singles:  winner - Chris Dednam (UFS), runner-up - Roelof Dednam (UFS), third - Wiaan Viljoen (UFS), fourth - Raymond Ronne (UFS);
