Silver and Bronze Nationals concluded today at the US Squash National Center in Philadelphia. Over 500 players from throughout the country came together to contest the two events and we were represented by 21 of the Squash Tigers crew. Full report to come, but the briefest of headlines were as follows...
Angela made us proud by winning the GU15 Most Improved. Although decided upon rankings, I also like to dwell on ratings, and Angela's rating has moved a remarkable amount from a 3.02 to a 3.91 in under a year. Hard work pays off and clearly bigger things are ahead for Miss Angela next season. Congratulations!
Also making us proud was Will, who won the BU17 Sportsmanship Award. Disappointingly Will was forced to retire from the event with an injury, but as befits his season, he performed to the best of his ability and remained sportsmanlike and classy through his disappointment… There will be some big wins ahead.
Not to be outshone, Anya played a great event in the GU17 Silver, finishing in 3rd place. Anya herself has had an extraordinary year, a rating move from 4.04 to 4.5 and never ceases to impress the coaches at Squash Tigers, on and off the court.
The Bronze crew were all legends in their own way, major shout outs to brothers Yiden and Yidrew who finished in 4th and 5th positions in the U11 and U13 respectively.
Many more stories to come, so look back at our blog early next week.
We'll see everyone at training tomorrow! Please note that our Spring Break program is over and we return to normal scheduling with our 4:00pm kickoff!
