WA Squash Staff Update

It is with great sadness that after twelve and a half years, Sue Hillier has resigned from her post of Development Officer and today, November 10, is her last day. Sue will be missed by everyone as she has done an incredible job of coordinating juniors, coaches, development squash, state squads and junior pennants. Sue will not be lost to squash as she will continue her own personal coaching, playing masters squash and continuing as a foundation and club coach assessor. WA Squash will send Sue off in style on the 24th of November, at our Hall of Fame Night, where she will be the 10th inductee to the Hall of Fame.

WA Squash welcomes Michaela Pratt to the Casual/Part-time role of Development Officer. Michaela comes from Narrogin, has represented WA at the AJC for the last 7 consecutive years, is a member of the victorious WA State Junior Team in 2018 and was named captain of the 2021 State Junior Team, which sadly was cancelled. Michaela is currently coaching the Hilton Junior Program, works at Squashworld and is currently studying at Curtin Uni.

Sibling history at WA State Junior Championships

Erin and Dylan Classen competed in the State finals today at Belmont Squash with both being successful in the U19 girls and boys final.  This is a significant achievement creating history being the only set of siblings and twins to win this event in the one year.  Congratulations to you both.

Erin who has had a great year winning several Ladies Open finals defeated Hannah Slyth 3/0 in the girls U19 final today.

Dylan created an upset by beating the No 1 seed and Australian U19 Champion, Oscar Curtis 3/1 in the boys U19 final.

Coincidently, another trio of siblings are to be congratulated.  The Marsh boys took out 3 events with Alexander winning the U13, Eric winning the U15 and Daniel winning the U17 boys Championships.  Well done to you all.
