Rough ending to badminton season

As the year comes to an end, the badminton team has a few games left to close out the season. This season has been an adjustment for the team as the addition of new players and coaches has created a different environment.

Despite their 2-8 record, the team has proven that their scores don’t mean everything, according to Junior player Aidan Bannon. Since the team has been able to come together to put all their effort into their games, Bannon is proud of how far the team has come.

“I am very proud of the effort that the team put in this year despite the results.”

Junior Laura Kim can agree with Bannon that despite the results of the tough season, the team was able to keep their spirits high and put full effort into each and every individual match played.

“This year was rough for the team, but I think the team still worked very hard,” Kim said. “You could definitely see the effort each individual put into each match.”

The team’s effort this year has taught them invaluable lessons that can transfer into next season to improve upon their skills.

“We can use the knowledge of these strengths and weaknesses to play better as a team. The team has gotten to know each other much better, notably all of our strengths and weaknesses.”

Bannon hopes that next year, the team will be able to pull upon the difficult lessons they learned this season to become better and stronger than ever next year.

In particular, he believes that starting earlier in the season to allot more time to pre season practice will be beneficial.

“I hope that next year we get more time at the beginning of the season next year to refine our skills before the games actually begin (as this year our search for coaches led to us starting late).”
