DYLAN Ramesh enjoyed a well-earned singles victory as Brent took on the rest of the capital's boroughs at badminton in the London Youth Games.
Ramesh came out on top against Islington in the first round, and Dipika Lad and Jeyasreetha Parameswaran won their girls' doubles tie.
Unfortunately it was Islington who won the contest overall with a 3-2 victory and Brent failed to qualify for the finals after losing to Bexley and Hounslow, who both fielded much older teams.
Brent badminton squad (pictured above): Prian Varsani, Rushi Pindoria, Byron Ramesh, Dylan Ramesh, Dipika Lad, Heena Patel, Dhruti Hirani, Jeyasreetha Parameswaran, Jeyatheve Parameswaran, Tolga Akdeniz, Reaz Vawda.
THE borough's boys and girls volleyball teams were also in action at The Score Centre in east London.
Managed by Stuart Fullerton of Willesden Volleyball Club, both squads represented Kingsbury High School, Queens Park Community College and Capital City Academy.
The girls played eight matches and won four, beating Camden, Harrow, Kensington & Chelsea and Haringey, while the boys team played nine and won three, with both teams competing well.
Brent also had a team competing in the kayak slalom at the London Regatta Centre, east London.
Sarah Nerva took the bronze in the senior girls' competition after her two attempts at the course.
Rickell Smith finished 10th in the senior boys class and Alex O'Neill was eighth in the juniors.
