Badminton swept San Domenico School in their first game of the season, winning every girls’ singles and doubles games.
“The game against San Domenico went very well,” co-captain Nora Hanak said. “Everyone is having fun, which is our main goal, so it was really successful.”
The team, consisting of 11 new players, returning coach after a two year break Sarah Garlinghouse and Stuart Hall High School badminton alumnus Steaven Baldoza as co-coach, began practices two weeks ago.
“Today, everyone had a solid performance.” Baldoza said. “Everyone tried their best and came out there and just killed it.”
The next home game is this Thursday against California Crosspoint High School at 4 p.m.
“I’m looking forward to seeing everyone improve,” Baldoza said. “I was on the team two years ago and looking at players that had played with me, I was thoroughly impressed with their performance today and seeing them grow up and seeing their progress.”
