In the mixed doubles competition Zhao and teammate Michelle Kozlowskyj (Garson) made it to the quarter-finals only to lose to the eventual winners of Cameron Lai and Chloe Rowe from Humber College.

It was also a quarter-finals appearance for the women's doubles team of Kozlowskyj and Courtney Brewer (Manitouwadge) as they went 2-1 at the competition.

In total the Grizzlies will play in three more tournaments prior to the OCAA East Regionals which are hosted by Centennial College on Feb. 2-3, 2018. The event will determine who will move on to the provincial championships.
