George Brown badminton will look to carry the momentum from an excellent first half into the Centennial Invitational this week, set to run this Friday and Saturday. The Huskies are currently ranked fourth in the country.

George Brown's first half was highlighted by numerous dominant performances, headlined by Ace Zeng and Yunji Kim. Zeng, in his first year as a Husky, has been particularly impressive, establishing himself among the province’s strongest men’s players. 

At George Brown’s own semester closing Kim Ng Open Invitational, Zeng captured titles in both men’s singles and mixed doubles competition, as well as a third-place finish in men’s doubles play. At the Fanshawe Invitational earlier in the season, Zeng took home top honours in both men’s singles and men’s doubles competition – he may well be the best freshmen in the province

“Ace has dominated singles events this year,” said second-year head coach Will Schram. “He has shown so much promise at such a young age, it has been incredibly exciting to watch his growth.”

OCAA All-Star Yunji Kim has led the way on the women’s side of things, wrapping her semester up with three top-three finishes, including a second-place result with partner Angeline Alviar in women’s doubles play.

Other Huskies to watch out for include Alex Chao, Yang Jin and the aforementioned Alviar, George Brown's reigning Female Athlete of the Year.
