New York City’s CitySquash swept all three U.S. Urban Squash Doubles Championships for the third consecutive year at the Denver Athletic Club in Colorado Friday.
An elite selection of eighteen NUSEA students from seven NUSEA programs competed in Boys’ U19, Girls’ U19, and Mixed divisions.
The U.S. Urban Squash Doubles Championships, supported by the National Urban Squash and Education Association (NUSEA), took place after a summer camp-style week of squash doubles and activities including white-water rafting, hiking the flatirons and visiting the University of Colorado.
Colorado Governor John Hickenlopper made an appearance Wednesday and joined the players on court.
“All of the students were a pleasure to work with, ” said coach Sarah Odell.
“They were enthusiastic and competitive. I’m hoping to run into some of them at doubles nationals in twenty years!”
Tournament professionals and tournament directors included Odell, Preston Quick, Eric Eiteljorg, John Lesko, Graham Bassett, and Otto Schlosser.
