Victoria Hall and Kimloung Lim turned in another outstanding performance in the national event, going 5-0 in preliminary play and winning their semi final. But they dropped a three set decision to Powin Lau and Jessica Yu of the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology (NAIT) in the final. The scores were 12-21, 21-19, 10-21.

The Mohawk men’s doubles team of Adam D’Agostino and Kianoosh Moslemi, who were 2-3 in the prelims, still qualified for the semi-finals, but were defeated, leaving them to play for a bronze medal. But they lost 19-21, 18-21 to Andy Ko and Jake Perry from NAIT to finish in fourth place.
