The Oak Lawn Badminton team started off their season on Wednesday March 15. 3 Quads were played on the 15th, Varsity at Joliet West, JV at Lincoln Way West, and F/S at home.

Varsity attended the Quad at Joliet West playing against 3 other schools including Lincoln Way West, Joliet West, and Lemont.

All girls played very well, competing in both singles and doubles matches. A total of 23 games were played by the Varsity Team

Total meet scores ended on Lincoln Way West 4-4, Joliet West 4-4, and Lemont 1-7. Honorable player mentions being Delilah Trujillo and Sandy Berg with wins in all four of their games, Beata Graca having 2 wins, Emily Moyer and Jailyn Haupt having a win for their doubles game, and Sofia Barrera and Natalie Moyer having a win for their doubles game.

“Overall, I thought the quad went well. It was a great opportunity for some of our younger players to gain experience, which we hope to build on and continuously improve for our next matches”, said Varsity Coach, Eliana La Spina. “We also had a strong performance from our top two seniors who went undefeated for the evening. I look forward to the rest of the season!”

With the season just beginning we expect to see many more successful games from the Oak Lawn Badminton team, and can’t wait to see how the season goes!
