Six More Titles at Urban Individuals

On Friday June 15th, 35 CitySquashers and several staff and student volunteers piled into the bus en route to Williams College for the 10th Annual Urban Individual Nationals. For our team members, Urban Individuals is one of the most important competitions of the year and this year was another huge success. Our team members made up twelve of the event’s sixteen finalists and brought home five out of the eight titles. 6th grader Robert Williams beat out teammate (and step brother!) Eric Molina to win the Boys Under 13 division. In an impressive display of Urban Squash’s values, Joana Pacheco won both the U13 squash title and the U13 writing contest with her poem on the topic of strengths. Andreina Benedith had a strong finish as the Girls Under 17 division winner while Kingsley Amoako also took the U17 title for the boys. A star on his high school squash team and the CitySquash team alike, Andrew Cadienhead was victorious in the U19 Boys division beating his CitySquash teammate and close rival, Darrius Campbell. CitySquash now boasts a record 63 Urban National Titles. Congratulations to the entire CitySquash team for representing us so well!
