Bermuda youngsters’ cups runneth over
Eleven of Bermuda’s junior squad have returned from Trinidad & Tobago bearing an impressive collection of trophies after the 37th Caribbean Area Squash Association Individual and Team Championships.
Competing in a field of 114 of the leading players in the Caribbean region, Bermuda had a bumper year, recording strong finishes in many of the individual events and making the semi-finals in both the girls’ and boys’ team events.
Among Bermuda’s top results in the individual event were Owen Rosorea, who was second in the boys’ under-11 age group, and Taylor Carrick, who was second in the boys’ under-19s.
Other high performers were Abigail Brewer, third in under-17s, Matthew Elliott, fourth in the under-17s, Anaya Smith, fourth in the boys’ under-19s, and Charlie Riker, fifth in the under-17s.
Taking on teams from Barbados, British Virgin Islands, Cayman Islands, Guyana, Jamaica, Trinidad & Tobago, and St Vincent & the Grenadines, Bermuda secured third place in the boys’ team event and fourth in the girls’ team event.
Playing for Bermuda’s girls team were Abigail Brewer, Ariana Lowther, Taliah Wade and Celia Robinson. On Bermuda’s boys team were Anaya Smith, Taylor Carrick, Charlie Riker, Matthew Elliott, Ethan Rosorea, Andrew Cox and Owen Rosorea.
Coach Micah Franklin left Trinidad to head for Lima, Peru, where he will be competing with fellow Bermudians Noah Browne and Nicholas Kyme in the Pan American Games.
