November DC Squash Newsletter — Junior News

Jacqueline Barnes pushed one of the world's top junior women -- Aparajitha Balamurukan -- to four games at the Queensland (Australia) Open Women's Pro-Squash Tournament. Her Indian opponent reached the 3rd round at the Junior Worlds last summer. To put that in perspective, no US woman got past the third round. Balamurukan then knocked out the #2 seed (World #50) in three games.  The November Women's Squash Association rankings are out and the 18 year-old Barnes is now ranked as World #136.


Kira Keating is now ranked #2 in GU17 in the USA thanks to reaching the finals of the Junior Championship Tournament (JCT) - Connecticut.  This is one of the highest rankings ever achieved by an NCS junior.  Kira also made the finals of the Philadelphia Squash Club Gold, playing up an age division in GU19, where she beat the US #24 in three games.

NCS Women Take Howe Cup "C" Title

National Capital Squash sent three teams to Seattle last weekend to compete in the annual U.S. Women's Team Championship, better known as the Howe Cup. The B team, captained by AJ Copeland, won their pool in round robin play and then lost two tough matches to a strong Seattle team and a tough California team, finishing third in a field of 9 teams. One of two C teams, the National Capital Squashers, captained by Mona Butterfield, won all their matches including a 3-2 nail-biter against the hometown favorite Seattle team in the finals, taking first place.  Congratulations to Squashers Candance Craig, Mary Coolidge, Wendy Hall, Sydney Ku and Cindy Vojtech on the win.  The second C team, captained by Christi Tezak, played valiantly and had fun. Of note, only Seattle had more teams than National Capital Squash in the Howe Cup as a whole.
