After finishing the season second going 12-2, six of Carlmont’s top male and female badminton players qualified to go to Monta Vista High School for the badminton Central Coast Section Championships.

Among those six include junior Ryan Pau and freshman Tracy Chu, two of Carlmont’s top seeded male and female players.

In the playoffs, Pau played his first game against Duong Luu from Del Mar High School. This game was quite an easy victory for Pau, as he beat Luu 15-8 and 15-8.

Next up for Pau was Eugene Chiang from Cupertino High. Unlike the last game, Pau faced a much tougher opponent in Chiang, and ended up losing 15-13 and 15-6.

After the loss, Pau said, “I didn’t do well at all. I played horribly.”

Even though Pau lost, he still has a very slim chance to win the CCS championships, since he’s in the loser’s bracket. Next up for Pau is Bryan Lin from Mitty High school.

On the girl’s side, Chu continued her winning ways into Monta Vista High.

She beat Catherina Xu from Cupertino, 15-4 and 15-3, for her first match on Tuesday. Next up was Tiffany Xi from Crystal Springs High. Chu won again, 15-3 and 15-6.

Chu will first be playing Angela Lin from Gunn High School. “I’ve trained with (Lin) before and she’s better than me, so I’m not going to win the first game… I think I can get third place though.”

Chu trains with two of the girls remaining in the tournament including Lin, but she doesn’t feel confident playing against them. However, sports are unpredictable, so only time will tell.

The CCS tournament continues today at Monta Vista, and Pau and Chu will try to continue the dominance they’ve exhibited all season in today’s matchup.
