Cedar Hill juniors squash the competition

Cedar Hill junior squash players win big at B.C. open in Vancouver

A pair of juniors from Cedar Hill Squash Club are provincial champs, having won their division at the 2012 B.C. Junior Open Championships in Vancouver over the weekend.

Matthew Henderson, 14, and Kellan O’Neill, 11, won their respective under-15 and under-13 B.C. titles at the Jericho Tennis Club in Kitsilano, Jan. 20 to 22.

“Earning multiple wins and high placings is something new for Cedar Hill Squash Club players, it’s a major accomplishment,” said Benjamin Uliana, squash pro at Cedar Hill.

Henderson won his final three sets to one, his second tournament win this season, and an improvement from finishing second at junior open championships last year.

O’Neill fell behind in the under-13 final against host Jericho player Sam Scivier, but came back to win 3-2.

Grace Thomas, 14, finished third in the girls U13 and Gavin Maxwell, 14, managed third while playing up an age bracket in the boys U17.

Maxwell is currently ranked No. 4 among U15 boys in the nation.

Tournament season continues as the Cedar Hill Squash Club will host the Pacific North West Jesters Tournament from Feb. 17 to 19.

“It’s the only national caliber junior squash tournament on Vancouver Island and an average of 180 kids entering in the event,” Uliana said.
