Boreal doubles team comes up just short
by Randy Pascal

Closing out their pre-Christmas schedule with a visit to George Brown College, site of the Kim Ng Open, the badminton team representing the Collège Boréal Vipères demonstrated their ability to enjoy a certain amount of success, competing in a small but very elite field.

In particular, Emilie Roy made strides, falling in the consolation round semi-finals to an opponent from Humber who managed to string together a slightly better performance at key moments in the match.

Undaunted, Roy combined with Michelle Kozlowskyj to come within just a single set of taking the consolation women’s doubles competition. “Their level of play was exceptional and they proved to the coaching staff that they are definitely capable of making provincials in ladies doubles,” noted Boréal head coach Mike Dionne.

“When she (Emilie) is dialed in, she is comparable to Michelle in skill level. Emilie is just not quite as polished as Michelle.” The tournament also provided the opportunity for the team coaching staff to participate on the court, as Dionne played his first singles event in some two years, posting a 1-1 record.

He also teamed with former Vipères and current assistant coach Justin Richardson to pick up a three-set win in men’s doubles action, losing their second match in the main round. Collège Boréal will once again be serving as host to the OCAA East Regionals on the weekend of February 3rd and 4th (2017).
