2017 CCAA Badminton All-Canadians

The Canadian Collegiate Athletic Association is proud to announce the 2017 CCAA Badminton All-Canadians.

The student-athletes, who are selected by their conference based on performance and contribution to the sport and their team, were honoured at a banquet during the 2017 CCAA Badminton National Championships at Seneca College in Toronto, ON.

Here are the 2017 Badminton All-Canadians:


Ryo Kuramochi

Imran Wadia





Kuramochi had a fantastic sophomore season with the Ooks, posting a 5-2 record in women’s singles, 3-0 in women’s doubles and 8-1 in mixed-doubles. Incredibly supportive and interactive with her teammates, Kuramochi is the perfect team player. Her efforts in practice have clearly paid off and are shown in her competition results this year.


In his second season with NAIT, Wadia was twice selected the CCAA Athlete of the Week. He posted a 9-1 singles record and 8-1 doubles record. His dedication to team support and overall improvement is impeccable. Wadia is accountable and present in practices and is a great role model for other student-athletes.


Olivia Lei

Owen Kurvits


Humber Hawks


Redeemer Royals

Lei, the third ranked women’s singles player in the country behind two Canadian Olympians, is now a three-time CCAA All-Canadian. She went undefeated against OCAA opponents this season in single’s play. Lei, who spends her spare time coaching at the Su Badminton Club in Markham, ON, consistently demonstrates sportsmanship toward opponents.


In his final varsity badminton season with the Royals, the three-time CCAA All-Canadian went 26-1 in men’s singles play. Kurvits was victorious at the OCAA West Regional, Humber Invitational, Redeemer Royal Cup and Fanshawe Invitational. The CCAA Fair Play Award recipient from 2014 continues to be the model of respect and fair play.


Emma Hughes

Jaryd Morrissey


Holland Hurricanes


Mount Allison Mounties

In her first season in the ACAA with the Hurricanes, Hughes went 15-1 in women’s singles and 16-0 in women’s doubles. She is a dedicated player, who takes the sport very seriously and she has an incredible amount of concentration on the court. Hughes takes pride in her play as well as her academic achievements.


In his third season with Mount Allison, Morrissey captured three men’s singles and three men’s doubles titles as well as a mixed-doubles crown. He is a dual-sport athlete who also plays soccer with the Mounties at the U SPORTS level. Morrissey has great respect for the game and for his opponents and he always holds himself to the highest personal standards for sportsmanship.
