Q: Why did you decide to play badminton?

A: “I was a double athlete [when I was younger]; I played a lot of soccer too. My dad had a friend who was a coach, so I just joined his club. Since then, I have played for seven years and on the national level.”

Q: What do you like about the badminton team?

A: “Since the badminton team is a new team, we have to figure out a lot of things by ourselves. [From this] I learned to be a lot more enterprising and more self-motivated to do things by ourselves. I learned a lot of skills from that. [I also] like how the team is a family, and [badminton] gives me something to look forward to when school is killing me.”

Q: Do you have any goals left to accomplish for the rest of the season?

A: “I’ve always been making it to NCS/CIF, but I’ve been playing really badly on the big stage. [I hope] to improve my performance as well as hope that the other players that work hard [will] qualify as well.”

Q: How do you think the team has done as a whole?

A: “I think we’ve been showing improvement, and that’s all that really matters to me. We’ve been working really hard, and I think it’s the best Amador’s had ever.”

Q: With the season wrapping up, what is your favorite memory?

A: “[My favorite memory] is winning the championship in 2014, and hopefully we’ll win a championship again this year.”
