Congratulations to our very own Moose Cohn, who qualified as the youngest player to ever compete on the US team!
From the Beach Reporter:
Jay “Moose” Cohn, 16, of Manhattan Beach became the youngest men’s player ever to compete for the United States on its badminton team after qualifying for the Pan American Games Individual Championships that will take place this week in Guatemala City, Guatemala.
Cohn, a junior on the Mira Costa High School badminton team, will play in the doubles competition with longtime Manhattan Beach native, Dean Schoppe, 61.
“I was excited, really cool,” said Cohn upon hearing the news.
Both players play at Manhattan Beach Badminton Club and Schoppe works with Cohn on his game and is also his professional doubles partner. Even though they play together, getting a chance to play in such a high-level competition was perfect timing.
