The highlight for our club was Sophie Dorrius winning the Girls U-11 division. Sophie finished the tournament with a 5-0 record. She only dropped one game in all five matches.

“This another breakthrough for our club,” said club organizer Kevin Dorrius. “It is the first time that one of our athletes has won a main draw at a Junior tournament.”

Previous, all our tournament wins have been in B Divisions.

In other results over the weekend, Alexis Larson and Julia Dorrius both made the Girls U-13 semi-finals and Conner McCabe finished second in the Boys U-15B division.

Pictured, here, Sophie Dorrius accepts her trophy from Shakiru Matti, Sport Central Head Squash Pro and Tournament Director.
