Blaze badminton polishes off solid regular season
The Burnsville badminton team ended the season at 10-4, which is one of the team’s best records in a long time.
Head coach Jeff Limke is hoping to host a first-round match, which would mean a top-four seed.
“There’s no assurance of that happening since it’s a bit of logjam at the top with us, St Paul Central, St Paul Highland Park, and St. Paul Harding,” Limke said. “We’ve played pretty well the last couple of weeks and we’re trying to keep that going.”
The state tournament begins on May 15 with the final four teams scheduled to play on May 16 at Burnsville. The state finals is schedule for May 17 at Eden Prairle.
“Our goal heading into state is to win it all.” Limke said. “That is our goal every season. To do it, we’re still going to have play very, very well. The teams in front of us don’t have many weaknesses, so we need to make sure we’re ready.”
