Sis­ters make a rac­quet for WA

Narrogin Observer - - News - Laura Gru­bisa

Nar­ro­gin sis­ters Michaela and Caitlin Pratt have been se­lected in the 2017 WA ju­nior State squash team that will travel to Gee­long to com­pete in Septem­ber.

At the re­cent WA State Aged-Based Ju­nior Squash Cham­pi­onships, Caitlin fin­ished first and won the WA State Ju­nior Un­der-13 ti­tle, and Michaela took third in the Un­der-15s.

Ear­lier in the year, the sis­ters trav­elled to the North­ern Ter­ri­tory to com­pete at the NT Ju­nior Open, where Michaela won the un­der-15 and un­der-17 di­vi­sions and Caitlin came se­cond in the un­der-13 divi­sion and third in the un­der-15 divi­sion.

The sis­ters are now train­ing and look­ing to the Aus­tralian Na­tional In­di­vid­ual and Teams Cham­pi­onships in Gee­long, as well as tak­ing part in the in­au­gu­ral Nar­ro­gin ju­nior squash tour­na­ment later this month.

Both ap­pre­ci­ate the strong com­mu­nity sup­port they have re­ceived through coach­ing, prac­tice ses­sions, match play, spon­sor­ship from lo­cal busi­nesses and fund­ing through lo­cal govern­ment ini­tia­tives.
