The City College of San Francisco Rams badminton team was declared the winner of the game by forfeit on Tuesday April 26, against Mission College, which due to unforeseen circumstances was unable to play the conference match. Although this may seem like an unsatisfactory way to win, the Rams team legitimately racked up another victory, increasing the chance it will  finish the conference tournament in third place.

On Thursday, April 27, the Rams will play as visitors against De Anza at De Anza College. The team’s  objective is to secure a victory that will strengthen its overall score to 6-4 and increase its chances of qualifying for the state championship while also embracing a more confident and determined mindset. “We need a lot of discipline and good mentality; our top ladder has a good chance to qualify for State Championships,” said Kristin Vinluan, a sophomore at City College and a first-season player for the badminton team. 

Head Coach Tiffany Mariano emphasized  that players are going through a lot of training and practice. Her line-up for the next game is: Carolyn Nguyen, Yuchu Huang, Xinyi Cai, Eunice Claire Millares, Kristin Vinluan and Kayla Mann.
