Badminton at Vancouver College resurrected in 2002. Since then, the team has captured five out of the past six Lower Mainland Championships and has qualified for the Provincial tournament five times.
After three consecutive second place finishes in 2005, 2006, and 2007, VC/LFA went 18-0 during the 2008 season on their way to either school's first provincial championship title in history. In 2008, over 160 high school teams competed in badminton across British Columbia.
Our Irish Badminton Team lost a close fought bronze medal game in Victoria in the 2019 Badminton Provincials.
Congratulations to the team for not only showing exemplarily athleticism, but for showing amazing sportsmanship, receiving this note from the Badminton Commission:
"The support of your players cheering for each other resonated throughout McKinnon all 3 days. The players on my team commented that they had to step up their volume so our players could hear them instead of you. This is what sport is all about and a true example of why you're the "Fighting Irish".
