NSW Feature // Neuqua Valley Badminton Doubles Up State Championships

In one of the most dominating displays of Badminton in IHSA history, The Wildcats bring home back to back state championships. One of the toughest tests en route to their hardware, themselves.

Joyce Chen and Shrinthi Vainkatasin on one side, Eva Chen and Sophia Li on the other, both donning the blue and gold, both vying for the State doubles title.

Even with the conflict of interest in the match, head coach Marie Valente was happy to be seeing double. Eventually the senior pairing of E. Chen and Li prevail, punctuating their high school careers.

For sophomores J. Chen and Vainkatasin, two more season’s lie ahead as they look to capture their own crown.
