VIU badminton off to encouraging start

Vancouver Island University’s badminton team showed encouraging results to start the 2012 PacWest season.

Newcomers Eunice Chan and Melissa Liew had strong weekends at the first tournament at Thompson Rivers University last weekend. Chan was runner-up to unbeatable Douglas Royals star RuiLin Huang in A singles, and Chan and Liew came second in A doubles. They took a set from Huang and her partner in that final, something no other team has done in more than four years.

Also at the tourney, VIU's Corentin Denis finished first in C singles and Connor White and Zack Yim teamed up to take first in C doubles.

The VIU Mariners host a tournament this coming weekend (Nov. 3-4) at the Vancouver Island University gym, with action going from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. both days.
