Nash Cup Results

     On the weekend of September 23rd, a number of WSF members forged up the 401 to compete in the 2012 Nash Cup.  This event is held at the London Squash Racquets Club and is a combined $10 000 PSA event and amateur event.  A visit to the London Club should be on every Squash enthusiasts to do list.  It is a freshly renovated facility with some of the most hospitable members around. 
     We're happy to report that not only did we have a good crew travel to this event, but we also have some fantastic results to report.  The top honours of the weekend went to Sarah Khan who, even as a junior, left her mark on the Ladies D division.  Sarah handidly beat all opponents to finish 1st in that category.  Her brother, Amin, also had a great weekend, finishing 1st among the consolation division of the Men's D.
In other divisions, Micayla Khan had a strong performance in the Women's B, eventually losing a close match in the quarter finals.  David Mill had a notable performance, with a respectable loss to London's past Club Champion in Rob Doherty. And Doug Fields showed good grace by losing to Jay Nash, the event's title sponsor, in the quarter finals.

     Our own Graeme Williams, competed for the first time since arriving in Canada. Graeme showed that he may be a little older than the young Western players, but that he is not to be under-estimated.  Graeme had a hard fought win agains Justin Vanderleest, who had previously finished in the top 10 in Canada, in the early rounds.  After a hard fought 5 gamer, Graeme made quicker work of his semi-final opponent, before defeating University of Western's Adrian Ostbye in the final. 

     Great job to all who competed.  The next regional event will be held right here in Windsor, when we host the Fall Down Classic on the weekend of November 2nd.
