The Huskies won two of the three medals in women's singles at the CCAA National Badminton Championships at University of Toronto Mississauga on March 7, 2020 with Huyen Le winning gold and Anh Hoang earning bronze. 

Le capped off her historic season winning the gold. The first-year standout took down the defending champion and 2020 CCAA Women's Badminton Player of the Year, Takeisha Wang in a three-set nail-biter, 2-1 (17-21, 21-16, 21-17). It marked the only time Le lost a set to an opponent the entire season. 

She created Husky history with her stellar performance and Melanie Gerin-Lajoie, Manager of George Brown College Athletics and Recreation, could not be more proud of Le's and the coaching staff's accomplishment. 

"It's incredibly exciting to bring home this national championship banner. It's our first in the sport of badminton, and only the second ever in George Brown Huskies history. So, we were a long time coming!"
