Six junior squash players from the Revelstoke Squash Club competed at a tournament at the Vancouver Lawn Tennis Club last weekend, with five of them coming home with medals.

On the boys side, Gabe Laidlaw finished in first place in the U15/U17 novice division. Gordon Mason finished second and Gavin Mason third in the U15/U17 B division.

On the girls side, Julia Dorrius finished second and Sophie Dorrius third in the U13 division.

This was the first tournament that the junior program ever participated in, so it was a big step for the club, said coach Kevin Dorrius.

“Going in, we really didn’t know how competitive our program was,” he said.

“Now we know that our juniors can play with the juniors down on the Lower Mainland. The kids all had a great time at their first junior tournament and are looking forward to the B.C. Junior Open in January.”
