St. Paul Johnson is in all-too-familiar territory.
The Governors won their fourth consecutive state badminton championship Wednesday, shutting out conference rival Harding 7-0 in the final at Burnsville High School. It is also the Governors’ fifth crown, the other one coming in 2005.
Johnson reached the championship with a 6-1 victory over Burnsville in the semifinals. Harding, which has been the state runner-up three of the past four years, edged Edina 4-3 in the other semifinal match.
