Valley Stream Central High School’s Lady Eagles varsity badminton team made it to the Nassau County Playoffs after an undefeated 10:0 record in their Conference. All-Conference titles were earned by Co-Captain Alexandra Casey, Alexis Howard, Taylor Ajitsingh, Minaal Ali Khan, Navneet Kaur, Chinonye Okoli, Emily Chou, and Pratibha Kaur.

Based on their personal records, both first and second Singles players Chinonye Okoli and Emily Chou were invited to participate in the Nassau County Individual Tournament on May 13.

"I am incredibly proud of the Varsity Central Badminton Team for not only reaching the goals we created together on the first day of the season, but for their strength in character, dedication to the program, and great sportsmanship," said Coach Kerri Guzzardo. "The Lady Eagles worked hard to earn the top spot in the conference and they fought for the undefeated record. The upperclassmen played an important role in mentoring the younger athletes and the team became a family. This has been a very exciting season and I look forward to seeing the team on the court at Playoffs."
