The individual portion of the state badminton tournament gets under way today at Independence High, with first-round matches starting at 10:30 a.m. for singles and 9 a.m. for doubles.

The Mountain Pointe doubles team of Vaishnavi Koka and Kiyoko Hashimoto are seeded first, as they haven't lost this season and have rarely been challenged.

The other doubles entrant for the Pride is Geneva Heinkel and Sabrina Martinez, who are seeded seventh, while singles entrants for the Pride will be Jenna Dogherty and Larae Keso.

Desert Vista's lone seed is senior Susan Tu, who is seventh in singles action, and the Thunder's other entrant is Aakriti Gupta.

In doubles action, the Thunder has entered Suhitha Veeravelli and Caitlin Fagan as a team, and Victoria Wadsworth and Alyssa Goldberg as the other combo.

The Pride lost Monday in the team tournament as ninth-seeded Mountain Pointe defeated Red Mountain, 5-0, in the first round, but lost to No. 1 Xavier, 5-3, in the quarterfinals.
