Badminton is alive and well at Lockport Township.

One of the original girls sports when the Illinois High School Association started State Tournaments for females in the 1970s, badminton has fallen out of favor at some schools. Especially with newer sports like lacrosse being introduced in the spring. 

But it’s still going strong at Lockport.
