Every season for the past 18 years, MVHS’ varsity badminton team has played and won the top division. Every year before the spring season, the MVHS Badminton Club hosts open gyms at least once a week in the field house for badminton enthusiasts to play and for team members to put their newly acquired skills and strategies to practice. Team captains and badminton club officers seniors Alex Maertens, David Chen and Rachel Hyun, as well as club officer sophomore Karina Wang, have all been on the team and in the club for the entirety of their high school careers, and have experienced the pride as well as the struggles of each year’s success.

In this podcast, these four members of the MVHS badminton community describe the team’s success and efforts to achieve it.
