Iman Shaheen Takes 3rd at US Junior Open

The 2017 US Junior Open Squash Championships were hosted by Yale University, Dec. 16 – 19, with over 900 competitors.

Once again, Iman Shaheen, of the Barrhaven Squash Club, played brilliantly to reach the semi-finals of the GU 13 Championship where she was beaten by the eventual winner. In the playoff for 3rd place she beat Madison Ho from California 11-6, 11-5, 11-8. Congratulations on this result, and good luck at the British Juniors in two weeks time.

Later in the day Abdulrahman Dweek, of Calgary, became the second Canadian to win a top three placing when he garnered a 3rd in the BU 17 event. Dominic Wren, of La Sportheque, reached the 3rd round of the BU19 Consolation.
