The girls’ badminton team won its home opener vs. Glenbard West on Wednesday and won 15-0 over Oak Lawn Thursday. This past Saturday, the team triumphed with a 34-1 tournament record at the Joliet Central Birds of Steele Invite to win the team championship. “[Winning] was amazing because almost everyone went undefeated and I think that really shows how hard everyone worked in the off season and how strong our team is this year. And it was fun because we’ve won that tournament before, but we didn’t win it last year and it was nice to bring the plaque back,” senior Girija Vaidya said.
