The Glencoe Club in Calgary, AB, played host to the 2018 Canadian Squash Championships this past week/weekend. While the event was far from home, a number of dedicated competitors packed their bags and made the trek to this high altitude city representing Ontario! 

It was a nail biting week at home for those of us who stayed glued to the Youtube channel watching the live-streamed Open matches and refreshing the draws over and over again to get the latest scores. In draws full of Alberta and BC players, Ontario squeaked by with two Gold, nine Silver, and four Bronze place finishes with another three consolation winners.  

Congratulations to the following medalists (in order of division):

  • Men's Open - Nick Sachvie (second place) and Mike McCue (third place)
  • Women's Open - Hollie Naughton (second place) and Sam Cornett (third place)
  • Men's 30+ - Derek Moore (second place)
  • Women's 30+ - Luz Osorio (second place)
