Mohawk badminton teams ‘eager’ to improve

BadmintonSave for a couple of returning women, the Mohawk badminton team has a new look for 2015-16 Ontario Colleges Athletic Association tournament play.

Coach Tony Leite took 11 men and four women to the first invitational event of the season at Humber over the weekend and Peter Nguyen and Jason Vu made it to the ‘C’ final in men’s doubles.

Leite said the field was very competitive in both men’s and women’s divisions and he likes his personnel.

“Mohawk’s players are all at a competitive level and all of our players are eager to learn and improve their play,” said Leite.

“Although the team is very young they are showing their coaches that they want to get better even after a long two days of tournament play, showing up to practise on Sunday and trying their best. The season is young and we are looking forward to continued improvement of all of Mohawk’s players.”

The next tournament is at Redeemer Oct. 30-31.
