Marmot Basin/Hostelling International Jasper Athlete of the Week for February 13 - 19, 2017
The NAIT Ooks badminton team captured their 7th consecutive ACAC Team Championship this past weekend at OIds College and veteran Andy Ko was a key contributor.
Andy won all 3 of his matches in the team competition then teamed up with ACAC Player of the Year Imran Wadia to capture the ACAC Men’s Doubles Championship and Gold Medal. The duo defeated the Concordia team of Luc-Ly Nguyen and Braxton Wong 21-18, 21-11 in the final and will now represent the ACAC at the CCAA Nationals hosted by Seneca College March 9-11 in Toronto, ON.
“Andy’s confidence and consistent play is admirable and a great example for our program,” said Head Coach Sinead Cheah. “He is always supportive of his team and will be one of the ACAC’s best chances at Gold at the CCAA Nationals”.
Andy is a 3rd year Open Studies student from Edmonton, AB.
