The team of Fabienne Chan (Richmond Hill, Ont.) and Clare Cheung (North York, Ont.) had the best result of the day for the Rams, going undefeated and upsetting two Waterloo squads en route to the women's double finals, where they fell to the Toronto pair of Melissa Hill and Bethany So.
Kyle Wong Chew Onn (Markham, Ont.) and Matthew Pang (Mississauga) made it as far as the semi-finals before losing to the pair of Danusha Ambagahawita and Mat Marr from Waterloo, who would go on to win the men's doubles event. They took 20 points off the champions in the second game; the most any team could muster against the Warriors pairing.
Christine Heung (Vancouver) also made a semi-final appearance before bowing out to York's Christina Nguyen, while David Chan (Markham, Ont.) would win both pool matches before being eliminated in two very close games (22-24, 20-22) in the quarter-finals by Jason Mak.
"Overall, while a couple of teams and individuals exited the tournament earlier than hoped, the overall performance of the team was much better than expected," said Head Coach Rob Fullerton. "Based on how team points are calculated, it is this type of consistency we will need to place well at (OUA Championships) in March."
The provincial championships run from March 16-18 at the University of Toronto.
