DARIEN — Judy Yang and Allison Ma, two of the Chicago area’s top badminton singles players, met for the second time Saturday, with a similar result.
Yang, a Hinsdale South freshman, beat Ma, a Naperville Central junior, 21-12, 21-13 for the A bracket singles championship at Hinsdale South’s ABCD Invitational.
Yang beat Ma previously in the championship of the Naperville Central tournament April 12.
“I needed to learn how to focus. From when I played her last, there was too much distraction,” Yang said. “This time I was very focused. I did much better than before.”
