AIA State Singles and Doubles Badminton Tournaments: Xavier Results

October 21, 2023

Friday, 10/20, handled the first two rounds of the State Singles and Double Badminton tournaments at Independence High School in Glendale on 75th Ave just south of Glendale Ave.

(JR) Maggie Henry was Xavier’s lone participant in the Singles Competition. She came into the tournament seeded 7th.

Maggie lived up to that ranking by defeating (SR) Rylan Rhodes from Liberty handily 21-10, 21-12 in the first round. She followed that up with a 2nd round 21-8, 21-18 victory over (JR) Payton Crank of Pinnacle.

However, Maggie faced #2 (JR) Lekha Shrivastava, Desert Vista, and lost 14-21, 7-21.


In the Doubles tournament, the Gator duo of (JR) Corinne Ladha and (SR) Sofia Zielinksi came into the tournament unranked and defeated another unranked team — from Mesa High School — in the first round 21-15, 21-11.

The 2nd round wasn’t so kind as they met up with the #3 seeded team in the state — from Westwood High School — and lost 12-21, 10-21.

Good job, Maggie, Corinne, and Sofia!
