Twelve members of the Revelstoke Junior Squash Team traveled to Vernon for the BC Interior Squash Championships this past weekend and achieved some great results. The tournament featured 38 junior squash players from clubs in Revelstoke, Kelowna and Vernon.

Here is how the Revelstoke players fared. Austin DesMazes won the boys U11, and Amelia Brown won the girls U13/15 division. They are both BC Interior champions.

In the boys U15 division, Tettey Tetteh finished second, Conner McCabe finished third and Julia Dorrius (competing with the boys) finished fourth out of the draw of 10 players. Sophie Dorrius finished third in the girls U13/U15 and was the top finishing U13 girl.

Ryan Howe finished third in the boys U11. Ryan and Austin had an unbelievable five game, extra points required, war in the semi-finals.

Josh Larsen, Aiden McCabe, Samantha Brown, Kaity Herle and Tristain Herle also competed and advanced well in the draws. It should be noted that Kaity and Tristain Hurle have only been playing squash for seven weeks, and did very well at the tournament, winning two matches each.

The team is now working hard, getting ready for BC Junior Open in Vancouver from January 16–18. This will be another very tall test for the team as that tournament will feature many of the top players in Western Canada.
