Sandburg badminton coach Kim Huelsman knows the blueprint well. Pretty much season in and season out, the Eagles tend to be slow starters. But with some duals and invites under their belts roughly one month into the season, things start to turn around for the better.

In other words, late March and early April are Sandburg’s months to kick into high gears.

Hosting rival Lincoln-Way Central in a SouthWest Suburban Conference crossover dual Thursday, March 26, Sandburg claimed a 9-6 win in Orland Park.
