Eight Compete in US Junior Open International Tournament

Eight CitySquashers headed to Boston for a long weekend from December 15th – 18th to play in the U.S. Junior Open Squash tournament, the largest junior squash tournament in the world. The U.S. Junior Open draws squash players from around the globe, and accommodates approximately 800 squash players. Matches were played at Harvard University, Belmont Hill School, Northwestern University, and MIT (Massachusetts Institute of Technology). Given the high level and different styles of international players, this is one of the more difficult tournaments that our students play in. All of our players had impressive matches throughout the weekend, including a hard fought 5-game win over an Egyptian player by Darrius Campbell. Darrius made it to the quarterfinals of the BU19 consolation draw, as did Andrew Cadienhead. Katiria Sanchez, home from Trinity College, made it to the finals of the GU19 plate draw. Billy Fleurima also played in the plate finals in the BU15 draw. Andreina Benedith and Eric Molina made it to the semifinals of the consolation in their respective draws, GU17 and BU13. Congratulations to all of these players for a successful weekend!
