Congratualtions to Luke Couture who won a Bronze medal in the Men's Singles at the CCAA Badminton Nationals in Kamloops last weekend. The Semi-Final match-up pitted Luke versus his PACWEST rival Bob Sharma, it was a tightly contested match but Bob Sharma was able to pull out the win 23-21 and 22-20. Luke then went on to face Simon Yip of the OCAA for the bronze medal, and this time came out on top of another very close match 23-21 and 21-18. Luke also won a gold medal as member of the PACWEST in the team competition. Alissa Young had a fine showing at her first CCAA National Tournament finishing 6th in her Women's Single event, and 5th with her teammates as the PACWEST Hosts.
