Veterans score big at titles
TWO of Bundaberg's best players have returned from Melbourne victorious after winning trophies at the Australian Masters' Squash Association Titles.
Michelle May came up just short of reaching the open women's 35-39 category, placing third in the final in Melbourne.
“It was a great week and a wonderful experience,” May said.
May has been playing squash for more than 25 years, but has only been competing for the last four years.
She competed in the Queensland Masters event earlier in the year.
And the experience at that event gave her confidence heading into Melbourne.
“I'm feeling a bit more confident with my play now,” she said.
John Murray was runner-up in the division two of the men's 40-45 years.
A week in windy Melbourne was too much for the Bundaberg player, who came up short against Victorian David Dougherty in the final.
“It is a big week there and I suppose it just took its toll in the end,” he said.
“I played five days and by the end of it I was worn out.”
Murray said he would be training hard to ensure he would be better prepared for a shot at a title next year.
