CitySquashers Battle Through Tough Draws at the Westchester Silver Tournament

CitySquash had a tough, yet rewarding, weekend at the Westchester Silver Tournament.  While some team members played in their correct age division, we decided to play a few team members up a division to gain some important match experience. In the BU11 division the “Three Musketeers” – Hugo Barroso, Axel Michaca and Christopher Lucero – played in their second tournament of the year. Hugo and Axel met in the consolation final with Hugo winning a close fought 5 game battle. Robert Williams played up a division, in the BU13, and did well against his older opponents eventually winning the consolation draw. In the GU13 division, Alexandra Limas’ gritty and tough play helped her reach the finals of the consolation draw. To prepare him for the upcoming National Silver Tournament, Billy Fleurima also played up a division going on to take 2nd place in the BU15. Katiria Sanchez played in the GU19 division. Director of Squash, Bryan Patterson, had this to say about Katiria’s play:
“Katiria is a wonderful representative for CitySquash, always supportive of our younger players, a terrific role model, great on court and very sporting. Katiria played some really great squash to reach the final. This final was for me the best match of the day – terrific squash, hard running, sportsmanship and respect. Katiria lost in 5 but what a wonderful match.”

Though we did not win a title, our team members came away with some great experience from a weekend of touch matches. We are now looking forward to this weekend and the Silver Nationals. GO CITYSQUASH!
