Badminton: Team needs to fill gaps left by alumni

February 28, 2017 — by Alex Yang and Jason Zhao

Coach: Charley Situ

League: SCVAL De Anza A League

2015-2016 season record: 6-6

Key athletes: Seniors Josh Li, Spring Ma and Mason Tian; juniors Stephen Ding

Key Losses: Alumni Michael Owyang, Partha Shah and Amanda Rhee

Key Matchups: Monta Vista and Cupertino

Prognosis:

After the loss of 20 graduating players, gaping holes have been left in the team lineup. With no notable additions to the team this year, Li projects that this will be a challenging season, as many JV members will have to step up.

“With the loss of seniors, we cannot be discouraged and we need to play with a winning mentality,” Li said.
