New York University, last year’s runner up, tried again to win the Championship. Their women were decidedly stronger than the Drexel women, but the Drexel men won all their matches.
The Feb 7-8 tournament at Boston Badminton is one of the biggest collegiate badminton events in the USA. Eight teams will compete in Division 1 and another eight in Division 2. There are sixteen teams and more than two hundred athletes to compete in the 2015 Yonex Northeast Collegiate Team Badminton Championships.
More than 180 participants from 15 Universities took their racquets to Boston Badminton in Westborough MA on Feb 1-2 to slug it and determine the winners of the 2014 YONEX Northeast Collegiate Team Championship. The 2014 Crown goes to the Drexel University Team with a little help from a friend and guest player, Kenneth Bohr of University of Maryland.
With the fast growth and popularity of badminton clubs in the region, university students are now stepping up their game and desiring for a match up with other universities.
