Anusha Thaly of Chrysalis High represents Karnataka team at Nationals!

Anusha Thaly Marathahalli - Sarjapur Road

It was indeed a moment of pride for Chrysalis High, Varthur when our student of Grade 7, Anusha Thaly qualified through KISA (Karnataka ICSE Schools Association) Regional tournament to represent Karnataka ICSE Schools in the ASISC Badminton Nationals U17 category held in October 2015 at New Delhi.
Anusha led the Karnataka team and was one of the youngest players in the competition at the age of 12 years. Beating the Bihar, UP and Kerala teams, she took the Karnataka team into the Semi Finals where she lost narrowly to the AP – Telangana combined teams who are nationally ranked older players in a tough 3 Setter. In the absence of another singles player in the Karnataka team, she played 14 continuous games on the second day of the tournament…neither losing her composure nor her fight till the last point of the Semi Finals losing by a narrow margin of 2 points in the final deciding game.
She was lauded by one and all not only for her grit but also the spirit with which she played!
Way to go Anusha!
