No. 1 HAWKS SEND THREE DISCIPLINES TO CCAA FINALS

No. 1 HAWKS SEND THREE DISCIPLINES TO CCAA FINALS

NORTH YORK, Ont -- It was a successful day for the No. 1 Hawks badminton program after three disciplines advanced to the 2017 CCAA championship finals.  

Two-time national champion Olivia Lei advanced to the women's singles final with a quick 21-5 21-5 over the ACAC - Wildcard team.  After two days of competition, Lei is 6-0 and will play the very talented Takeisha Wang (ACAC) in the finals.  These two met in round robin play and Wang challenged Lei but ultimately fell 21-16 21-16.

Lei is looking to become just the second three-time national champion in CCAA women's singles history.

Partners Phuthita Nilyok and Chloe Rowe dominated on day two, only allowing their opponents to reach double-digits once all day.  In search of winning Humber's first women's doubles crown in four years, Nilyok and Rowe defeated team ACAC - Wildcard in the semi-finals 21-9 21-9, setting up an All-Ontario gold medal match and a rematch of the OCAA title match with Seneca.  In those two meetings, Humber is 2-0, winning in straight sets.

Looking to become the first duo to win back-to-back national titles in almost a decade, partners Adam Dong and Ryan Chow swept away their competition on day two and have advanced to the finals after a 21-11 21-15 win over the PACWEST in the semi-finals.  In the finals, Humber will face NAIT (ACAC), the only team to take a set off the duo this season.

The gold medal round begins March 11 at 1:30 p.m.
