    2009-SPRING:

    The 2009 Canadian Junior National Championships were held in Edmonton, Alberta on May 4-9, and Victoria sent a strong and large contingent of athletes this year for the first time in a long time. Badminton Victoria was represented by eleven athletes from U14 all the way up to U23, and consisted of Ethan Lee, Candice Ip, Helen Ip, Robbie Thomas, Christopher Wan, Sylvia Wan, Emily Chung, Vivian Yan, Bryan Cassels, Riley Trottier, and Jeremy Côté. For most of us, it was an entirely new experience being at such a huge tournament in such a huge venue, and only having to play 2 matches a day! All the athletes performed admirably, with some notable finishes. Candice Ip performed extremely well, placed runner-up in U14 Girls Doubles with Eileen Wong and consolation winner in U14 Mixed Doubles with Haijun Liu. Sylvia Wan claimed the consolation winner title in U16 Girls Singles, and her and Emily Chung achieving consolation runner-up in U16 Girls Doubles. Coach Keith Anton was very happy with the play of all the athletes, and aside from losing his notebook on multiple occasions, he was mostly able to keep his sanity. Everyone who attended had an enjoyable time and are already looking forward to next year! Congratulations to all athletes! Full results can be found on the Badminton Alberta website.
