The badminton season originally got off to a great start against South San Francisco, but soon suffered a losing streak of four matches. The season is more than halfway over and Peninsula Athletic League matches approach, with division tournaments on May 3 and 4, and the final PAL Tournament on Saturday, May 7. The varsity badminton team anticipates its next few matches as they face off against rival school for the second time to conclude the season.
Currently, the team has won matches 3-12 against South San Francisco twice, and Sequoia High School. Recently, in the Panthers’ second match against Westmoor on Thursday, April 2, Panthers unfortunately lost 9-6.
However, junior Cheryl Lee optimistically predicted, “I think we’ll be able to win one more game, and I also think that our boys will go far in PALs.”
The team looks forward to its boys advancing to PALs, including freshman Joey Zhang, Justin Banquiles, and former CCS placer, junior Easton Cullen.
With 13 matches done and Carlmont to face on Thursday, April 28, the Panthers are ramping up the excitement for the upcoming PAL Tournament. Come cheer on the Panthers’ last home match against Carlmont at 4p.m.
