US Squash Junior Bronze 
Tournament Highlights!

Congratulations to Carolina and Meliya!

As June came to a close, Access hosted our second US Squash Junior Bronze Tournament at RIMAC Arena - UCSD. Fielding players from both Boys and Girls Under 15 and Under 17 divisions, Access students were able to compete with other players from across the country. Some students came from as far as Connecticut to play against their west coast peers! 

At the end of the day, Access team members went home a total of seven trophies, including all of the runner-up trophies, and three winner trophies. Pictured above is Carolina (GU15 winner) and Access' 2018 "Most Improved Player", Meliya (GU15 runner up). Congratulations to all the competitors who gave their all!
