Juniors step up for a grade games

THE Bundy squash juniors are on a roll.

The Bundaberg Squash Centre is experiencing an influx of excellent juniors anxious to make a difference on the night competition scene.

Players Georgia Corpe, Sam Tobin, Jace Andreassen and, as of last week, Jonathan Dimes are now playing A-grade competition and loving it.

Thursday night B-grade is no exception, with Craig Wittmere, Sam Penny, Emma Andreassen, Ryan Mclean and new starter Sarah Dimes all in the mix.

The excited juniors would live at the courts if there was enough room.

Tuesday's player to watch, Ben Tobin, took court four by storm when facing the experienced Blair Britag.

Young Ben never gave in to the opponent exerting all his effort despite Blair's relaxed hard-hitting style.

The five-game match between the two was the best seen for some time, however experienced Blair won the last point in the fifth game.

Despite the winner singing the song, the overall effort by both juniors was the real winner.

Most-improved players are Sam Penny and Ashley Andreassen.
