THERE was more badminton success for two more Thorp Academy students this week.

Louie Abraham and Billy Lapworth, both enrolled on the Elite Performer Programme at Thorp, were crowned Under-15s double champions at the Tees Valley Tournament in Thornaby.

The Ryton Badminton duo took their performances to the next level in the final after finishing their group as runners-up.

In the final the pair faced a couple of Yorkshire County players and a tight game went to three ends.

Billy and Louie won the final end 21-18 to ensure the title stayed with the impressive Durham county boys.
