Junior National Championship Update, June 2012
The country’s best junior racquetball players competed at the Meridian Sports Club in Fullerton, CA, June 21-24 in the USAR National Junior Olympic Racquetball Championships presented by Penn.
Junior players from all across the U.S. competed for coveted Gold medals in 60 divisions for boy’s and girl’s in singles and doubles. In addition, this event is a U.S. Junior National Team Qualifier as one-year appointments were earned by the top finishers in 18-Gold Singles, 16-Gold Singles, 14-Gold Singles in boy’s and girl’s divisions. The USA Junior Team will be competing at the 2012 IRF Junior World Racquetball Championships, November 11-17, 2012 in Los Angeles, CA.
I am PROUD to say my Junior Championship Racquetball Team fared well at this event and all in all we took home 13 medals and 3 of my players qualified for the USA Junior Team and will be representing the United States at the Junior World Championships in November.
