Anh Hoang rolled through the opposition at the Fanshawe Invitational this past weekend, winning each set in her first three Women's Singles matches by an average of 16.5 points per set. The two-time national medal winner captured gold over Victoria Duong (Humber College) in a back and forth final (23-21, 17-21, 21-15). Hoang was just as strong in team play, taking home a second gold in the Mixed Doubles event partnered with fellow third-year veteran Yuge (Ace) Zeng.
This performance comes after Hoang also walked away with silver (Women's Singles) and gold (Women's Doubles) hardware at the Li-Ning Humber Cup in October.
In Mixed Doubles play, veteran power duo Yuge (Ace) Zeng and Anh Hoang dominated the field, not losing a game until the championship match. In the final, Zeng/Hoang would face Conestoga's Satheesh/Betts pairing. After losing the first game 18-21, the Huskies bounced back from a 6-11 deficit in the second to take the next two 21-17 and 21-13 and capture gold. On the Men's Singles side of the bracket, Zeng also went the distance for the Huskies, closing out the competition with a silver medal against Conestoga's Pranav Satheesh (8-21, 14-21).
Zeng's double-medal performance last weekend improved on his haul at the Li-Ning Humber Cup in October, where he took home two silver medals.
