Neuqua Valley looks to win its second straight state championship in badminton.
The Wildcats entered day two with 13 points and pulled away from the competition. Lauren Ho finished in second place, while the doubles pair of Eva Chen and Sophia Li met the other Neuqua doubles pair of Joyce Chen and Shrinithi Venkatesan in the finals.
While Neuqua ran away with its second state title, several other individuals placed. Waubonsie Valley’s Shalu Manoharan took 5th place, while Naperville Central’s Surya Nair finished in 3rd.
Finishing in 4th place was the Naperville North doubles pair of Clara Duan and Clare Jiang. That finish helped the Huskies just edge out Buffalo Grove for a third place finish at the meet.
