Jim Mason Cup High School Team Tournament

 Champion Team Lawrence Park C.I.

Champion Team Lawrence Park C.I.

This past Friday and Saturday, Squash Ontario held the 2017 Jim Mason Cup High School Championships at Executive Squash and Fitness. This year saw a record of 16 schools and 145 players competing for the coveted trophy.

As always, a large portion of the draws were dominated by Niagara and Windsor schools but it wasn't enough to fend off the reigning Champions from Lawrence Park C.I. of Toronto. Taking first place in the Senior Boys Ranked, Girls Ranked and Junior Girls Unranked divisions, Lawrence Park proved too strong for their competitors. Vista Tecumseh took home the Second Place finish, AN Myer (Niagara Falls) with third, St. Paul (Niagara Falls) with fourth place, and Massey in fifth (Windsor). 

Congratulations to the team of Megan Boone, Sam Burley, Ken Etchells, Bennett Stuart, Erica McGillicuddy, Laura Vandeursen, Jessa Paton, Jack Shields, Maddy Fisher, Alex Newton, Nick Trail, Liam VanGelder, Coach Jim Paton and Wendy Vandeursen for finishing with the most overall points for a second year in a row.
