Yesterday afternoon the coed badminton team topped Kew-Forest, 7-0, in the first badminton match in PSAA history. The PSAA has never before had a badminton league in their 33 years of existence.

The Bears previously played full schedule for the boys’ and girls’ in the NYSPHSAA, but based on the participation numbers of our opponent schools in this inaugural year, they will play a coed structure to ensure representations for both teams in each match.

The match structure is best of nine with 5 singles and 4 doubles matches. The singles will be comprised of 2 boys’ matches and 3 girls’ matches, while the doubles will include 2 girls’, 1 boys’, and 1 mixed. Each individual match is best 2-of-3 games to 15 points with rally scoring.

Yesterday the Bears played a modified match since the Jaguars were missing several players due to a mock trial commitment. Mary Wang won the 1st girls’ singles match, 15-3, 15-5, while Nancy Man won the 2nd girls’ singles match, 15-7, 15-5. Jerry Liu took 1st boys’ singles, 15-5, 15-6, and Tony Yu 2nd boys’ singles, 15-5, 15-6.

In doubles, Leslie Kang and Judy Liu took 1st doubles 15-4, 15-5 and Rosemary Wu and Grace Wang 2nd doubles, 15-2, 15-6. Jack Yu and Caleb Spreckels won 1st boys’ doubles, 15-4, 15-4.

The Bears are back in action tomorrow in a non-league match-up at Miller Place.
