Nicholson, age 14, also won second in the U17 division, playing a level above her age, against 24 northern competitors.

After fighting her way to the finals, Nicholson was narrowly defeated by Diane Ayson of Prince George, with scores of 19-21 and 15-21.

“This year’s tournament had a lot of competitors compared to previous years, which made for great competition and forced Lisa to really up her game,” said her mom, Erika Nicholson.

The three day tournament drew over 90 competitors from Fort St. John, Prince Rupert, Terrace, Smithers, Vanderhoof, and Prince George.

There were over 323 matches played in 21 different events over the three days with categories ranging from U13 to 50+, men and women singles and doubles, also mixed doubles.

The event wrapped up the badminton season in Terrace for another year.
