Varsity Another great beginning to the Hinsdale South Varsity Badminton season! After going through a tough tryout period and a great first two weeks of practice, the Hornet Varsity Badminton team started out with some great wins against Homewood-Flossmoor, Lincoln-Way Central, Oak Forest and Lincoln-Way West. We then proceed to jump into our annual Dennis Karnstedt varsity badminton tournament and game away with a third place finish against 12 really good badminton teams. Congratulations to Maggie Chen and Megan Tai for their championships at 1 and 2 singles at this tournament. Also, congratulations to Eva Maria Louis for her second place finish at 3 singles. Megan Tai and Ameila Hoch are showing the team what great leadership is and their examples of helping others and the team is really what makes Hornet Badminton great!
