Congratulations to Julie Multamaki on winning the 2018 US National Women’s 55+ squash championship title in Philadelphia.
After cruising through the first 2 rounds in straight game victories, Julie found herself in a real battle in the finals against Jill Campion. The first two games were back and forth with each player winning one each by an identical score of 11-9. Everything that could go wrong, did go wrong for Julie in the third game though with poor length and hitting tin resulting in an 11-1 loss. Facing an 8-3 deficit in fourth, Julie decided it was now or never and started to cut off the ball, dig deep into her physical reserves and stay ahead of Jill at all costs. The change in tactics paid off in a 12-10 win. Continuing with an attacking style, Julie kept up her momentum cruising to an 11-5 victory and the championship trophy.
Well done Julie, and good luck in the upcoming Canadian Nationals!
