Continuing with his consistent performance, local badminton prodigy Lakshay Sharma added another feather to his cap as he scored a brace, by clinching two titles in the Under-15 category in the Sub-Junior Open Punjab State Badminton Championship held in Jalandhar from September 26 to 30.

Lakshay (13), a student of Class VIII at Sacred Heart Convent School, Sarabha Nagar, stamped his superiority by wrapping up the titles in the singles and doubles categories.

In the singles’ final, Lakshay scored an emphatic victory over his city mate Arnam Jain (14), a student of Class IX at Sat Paul Mittal School, whom he outperformed in straight sets 21-14, 21-10 to stitch up the title.
