Narrogin Observer - - Observer Sport -

An­drew Pratt and Sarah Hen­nesseyParks re­tained their ti­tles in the 2017 Nar­ro­gin Squash Club Cham­pi­onships.

Com­mand­ing per­for­mances by both play­ers length­ened their longterm stays on the Squash Honour Board. Pratt was chal­lenged by a de­ter­mined Si­mon Dare in the fi­nal, but his abil­ity to deal with Dare’s hard drives with cut-off vol­leys meant Dare was of­ten in re­trieval mode and un­able to make all shots as tight as he would have liked. Pratt took out the ti­tle 9-2, 9-6, 9-4.

The ladies event was a match-up be­tween es­tab­lished player Hen­nessey- Parks and emerg­ing tal­ent Michaela Pratt. Hen­nessey-Parks’ heav­ier hit­ting and greater steadi­ness were able to over­come Pratt’s per­sis­tence and she won 9-2, 9-4, 9-6.

Hugh Sharpe and Charles Naude faced off in the B-grade fi­nal. Naude looked set to win the game be­fore a se­ries of good drop shots from Sharpe al­lowed him to re­cover from a dif­fi­cult po­si­tion to win 10-8, and go on to take the match 9-3, 10-8, 9-4

The A-divi­sion fi­nal went to Bren­nan Pratt against Ge­off Hann, 9-2, 9-4, 9-4. The C divi­sion win­ner was De­clin Mumby. Plate win­ners were Aaron Cook (open), Alyce Smith (ladies), Ryan Moldrich (A), Mtchell Milton (B) and Les­lie Yong (C).
