Despite a rough season marked by surprising victories and close losses, the badminton team has gone up from the 5th in the league to the 3rd.
Currently, the team has won 7 out of 14 matches against schools in the area including Hillsdale, San Mateo, and South City. Recently, in the Panthers’ second match against Hillsdale High School on Tuesday, April 17, Panthers finished with a 10-5 win over the Hillsdale Knights. Moreover, the badminton team almost beat last year’s champion Westmor High School 7-8.
“My goal for this season is to improve the overall team standing and to send my players to play in CCS games,” head coach Salvador Banquiles said. “There’s a chance that some athletes make CCS this year.”
