In­juries can’t hold Wy­combe High girls back


Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - SPORT -

IN­JURIES de­prived Wy­combe High School’s U15s squash team of two of their top play­ers as they met an ex­pe­ri­enced Mill­field School team in the Na­tional School Cham­pi­onships.

How­ever, the new-look team of Cassie Green, Alysha Martin, Gina Mullis, Han­nah Kras­ner and Lucy Her­ritty all per­formed bril­liantly against their Som­er­set op­po­nents to win ev­ery set 3-0, and next up is Brad­field School on Novem­ber 27.

Mean­while, over in the Bucks Squash League, Wy­combe Squash & Rack­et­ball Club’s men’s first team, pro­moted last year, regis­tered their first Di­vi­sion One win of the sea­son against Holmer Green.

George Good­child and Andy Wal­ters got Wy­combe off to a great start be­fore Si­mon Miller wrapped up the bonus points with a 3-1 win. Stu­art Bur­nett then edged the de­cid­ing game 10-8 after a see-saw bat­tle with Tor Stock­dale, and although Alex Hart­ley ex­acted some re­venge for Green with a 3-0 win, Wy­combe won 16-6.

At the top of the ta­ble, Bea­cons­field Tigers beat cham­pi­ons Che­sham Bois 1a 17-7 to take over the lead, but Ayles­bury Gram­mar School are lurk­ing in sec­ond place after beat­ing Ayles­bury 17-10 Che­sham Bois 1b 17-6.

In Di­vi­sion Two, lead­ers Wy­combe Squash & Rack­et­ball Club’s sec­ond team over­came some stub­born re­sis­tance from mid-ta­ble Che­sham 1879 to main­tain both their lead­er­ship and 100 per cent record. Most of the game scores were close, but Wy­combe proved too strong, with a 3-0 win for Goff Power and 3-1s for Andy Wal­ters, Petr Nedzari­lik and Matt Al­lan­son, while Gavin McKin­lay replied for Che­sham with a com­bat­ive 3-1 win after los­ing the first.
