The participation of Soria players in the Castilla y Leon Championships for the Under-17 and Senior categories resulted in three regional titles and eight more medals, confirming our province as one of the leaders in Castilian-Leonese badminton.
In the Under-17 category, Club Badminton Soria-CS24’s Daniela Corchon didn’t give her rivals an option in the individual modes. Ranked as the third best national racket, she won all her matches from two sets to zero. Daniela would go on to take the silver medal in the mixed doubles category partnering with Leon’s Andrés Pérez.
The second title of champion of Castilla León was won by his club-mate Santiago Martínez in the individual draw of his category within the seniors. The favorite to receive a new regional winding up, Soriano did not disappoint and confirmed his good form.
Again, the third Castilian-Leonese championship came in the individual event. In the match that closed out the senior competition, José Carlos Pérez and Manuel Acero starred in their category finals. As with the previous twenty matches between the two, the match was of great quality, physical exhaustion and emotion, with the first winning 25–27, 21–18 and 22–20. For Jose Carlos it means his first regional title in the individual mods, reaping the fruits of the work of the past several seasons.
In the individual modalities, there were also medals for Soriana representation, with two runners-up in the respective categories for Víctor Ortega and David Hernánsanz.
Within the men’s doubles, Sorianos had an outstanding competition, receiving two regional runner-up finishes and another bronze medal. In Category B, David Hernansanz from Soriano and Sergio Latorre from Burgos will rise to the second step of the podium and third will be the duo formed by Manuel Acero and Santiago Martínez. For his part, José Carlos Pérez was very close to achieving the double as he lost the doubles final 22–20 in his category in the third set.
AD89 midfielders Sergio Latorre and Cristina Puebla were the only representatives in the mixed doubles box. The men from Burgos fulfilled the predictions that kept them as one of the stronger pairs in the competition, leaving the final match for the gold with tight results of 15-21, 21-11 and 16-21.
For Santiago Martínez, José Carlos Pérez, Sergio Latorre and Cristina Puebla, this is the last competition representing Spain for their participation in the European Nations Cup, which will be held in the Netherlands in early June.
