More Tournament Success For CitySquash Team Members

Over the past month, CitySquash team members have continued to build on early season success.  CitySquash brought home four more divisional titles from their last two tournaments along with numerous significant results.  On November 19th, 12 CitySquashers traveled to Pyramid Squash Club in Tuckahoe, NY for the Thanksgiving Silver Tournament.  In the BU13 division, Billy Fleurima won his first title of the season without dropping a game.  In the BU15 division, Michael Kelly finished 2nd losing an incredibly close final 12-14 in the fifth game.  Teammate Leondre Damil took home the BU15 consolation title.  CitySquash was fortunate to have two of its boarding school students, Alija Hogans and Santiago Moran, make the trip from Avon Old Farms for the tournament.  Alija placed 2nd in the BU19 while Santiago finished 3rd.  On the girls side, Katiria Sanchez continued her impressive form finishing 2nd in the GU19.  At her first tournament in the GU15 division, Mariela Mendoza finished in an impressive 4th place.
Opting out of the customary turkey-induced weekend of sleep and stagnation, a group of CitySquashers competed in the Thanksgiving Weekend Sportsplex Silver Tournament in Queens, NY. The tournament proved to be one of the most successful for CitySquash to date.  For the second straight weekend, Billy Fleurima won the BU13 division; this time winning the final in a tough five game match.  In the BU17 division, CitySquash team members made up three of the four semifinalists with CitySquasher Andrew Cadienhead going on to beat teammate Darrius Campbell in the finals.  Alija Hogans and Santiago Moran met eachother in the semifinals of the BU19 (again) with Alija just edging out Santiago and claiming 2nd place in the division.  Seetreeon Torres won the BU19 consolation title.  Katiria Sanchez won her second title of the season losing only one game throughout the tournament.  Lanique Rhyne won the GU19 consolation title.
All-in-all, a very impressive showing from all CitySquash competitors.  We are very proud of our team members and expect continued success for the rest of the season.
