Bermuda achieved their highest finish at the Junior Caribbean Area Squash Championships since 2012 by finishing third this week.

When the action concluded on Saturday in Tortola, British Virgin Islands, the island’s rising squash stars finished third behind winners Barbados and Guyana, matching their finishing position 12 years ago in Kingston, Jamaica.

“Overall our team finished third, which is Bermuda’s first time finishing top three since 2012,’’ said Micah Franklin, the head of squash at the Bermuda Squash Association.

“The Bermuda girls team finished fourth after a nail-biter with Trinidad & Tobago, while the boys finished second after losing a tough match against Barbados.

“We are so proud of each and every one of them for playing their hearts out during the week.

“They gave it 110 per cent every single time they stepped on the court, what more could we ask for? We already can’t wait to get back to work on helping them improve for next year.”

On the final day, the Bermuda female team finished tied 3-3 with Trinidad & Tobago, but lost out on the bronze medal on countback after winning the fewer number of games.

In the boys final against Barbados, Owen Rosorea’s 3-0 loss to Jayden George saw Bermuda lose out on the gold to the Barbadians.

Individually, Bermuda’s budding stars are returning home with four medals. Mason Smith waved farewell to the boys under-11 category at the championships by defending his title, with victory in the final coming against his team-mate, Ben Sherratt.

George Qureshi, on his last outing for Bermuda before relocating to Canada with his family, signed off with a bronze medal.
