Sharon LuThe Georgian Grizzlies men’s and women’s badminton teams competed at the East Regional Badminton Championship hosted by Boreal College in Sudbury this past weekend.

The Grizzlies found some stiff competition at the event from the Seneca Sting who swept the team titles on both the men’s and women’s sides.

The top three singles and doubles competitors in each event advance to the 2015 OCAA Badminton Championships from Feb. 20-21 hosted by Fanshawe College in London.

Georgian’s Sharon Lu (Barrie) was the lone Grizzlies athlete to earn a spot in the top three after defeating Seneca’s Christina Truong 2-0 (21-11, 21-14) in the third place match.

This will be the first time representing Georgian at the provincials for Lu who just missed out last year with a fourth place finish at regionals.
