It was an awesome week of squash at the Royal Glenora and Edmonton Squash Club from April 11-14th.
The ESC had a strong contingent participating, including Isaac El Hayek & Amit Joseph in Boys U-17, Hanna Hay and Antonella Rodriguez in Girls U-15, Mohamed Elserafy in Boys U-11 and Romina Rodriguez in Girls U-11.
After all the dust had settled, the ESC can now claim their first ever National Junior Champion with Momo running the gauntlet and avenging his Alberta Junior Closed Championship loss with a convincing 3-0 win in the finals. Congrats to Momo! You can watch his match in its entirety below.
Romina also had a fantastic tournament winning the silver medal in her division. Amazing!
