Webb Badminton Season Preview

Frank Dariano
Coach Kevin Quick says the Gauls are “hoping to surprise a few teams, especially during CIF.” His goal is to finish at least 6-4 in the regular season. One year ago, Webb was the #12 seed in CIF and was bounced by Cerritos in the opening round.

Webb Badminton is already off to a 1-0 start with a 17-4 over Gladstone last Thursday. Among the varsity players, Albert Zhang ’18 and Macy Huang ’18 are set to be the singles leaders for the boys’ and girls’ teams. Seniors Claire Jiang and Grace Wang will be among the best doubles players for Vivian Webb, while J.J. Pandji ’18 and Alex Oei ’18 round out the top talent for WSC. Top athletes from other sports, including Anam Zaidi ’18 and Takim Myrhe ’18, will also play a big role on varsity.

The JV squad is loaded with talent as well, including Kara Sun ’20, Deanna Oei ’20, Chris Ma ’20, and David Qian ’18. Coach Quick says there is also a lot of meaning in the team’s official mantra “1-2-3 Webb, 1-2-3 One More.” The “One More” he says, is a reminder to his players always put in the extra effort in both Badminton and all other aspects of their lives. He uses the example of having water at 211 degrees: “you need that one extra degree to create something completely different.”

The Gauls will face fresh new competition, including six time defending CIF champion Diamond Bar, Wilson, and Chino Hills. The 10 days leading up to Spring Break will be a true test for the Gauls, as they face Diamond Bar and Chino Hills twice each in that span, and Wilson once. Webb will have just one more match before league and CIF playoffs once the team returns from break.
