Strong Mullins leads suc­cess­ful show­ing from Wy­combe starlets

Buckinghamshire Advertiser - - NEWS -

WY­COMBE Squash & Rac­quet­ball Club star­let Alex Mullins has been crowned South Re­gion Cham­pion.

Mullins proved too strong for the rest to lift the U11s crown at the closed cham­pi­onship staged at Alder­shot Gar­ri­son Sports Cen­tre.

His was not the only suc­cess for WSRC with Al­fie Green and Fred­die Evans fin­ish­ing run­ner-up in the U13 and U15 cham­pi­onships re­spec­tively.

There was more good news for Wy­combe young­sters in the Na­tional Schools Cham­pi­onship where Wy­combe High School staged a come­back win over last year’s run­ner­sup Ke­nil­worth to ad­vance to the sec­ond stage.

All looked lost when Wy­combe’s top two were beaten in the open­ing two rub­bers, each go­ing down 3-0.

He­len Kras­ner launched the fight­back with a crush­ing 3-0 win of her own be­fore Her­rity and Ab­bie Sum­ner each won grip­ping five-setters to seal an en­thralling 3-2 win.

Mean­while, the lat­est Bucks Squash League ac­tion saw reign­ing Di­vi­sion One cham­pi­ons Ayles­bury Gram­mar School con­tinue the un­beaten start to their ti­tle de­fence, record­ing a fifth win out of five as they thrashed Che­sham Bois 1b 17-7.

At the other end of the ta­ble, Bea­cons­field Li­ons tasted de­feat for the sixth time al­ready in the cam­paign as they went down 13-7 to Holmer Green.

Che­sham Bois Mavericks com­pleted a mag­nif­i­cent seven wins out of seven in Di­vi­sion Two as they beat Che­sham 1879 15-8, but that was the end to their vic­tory se­quence as they promptly lost next time up 14-9 to club-mates Che­sham Bois Se­niors.

Bea­cons­field Tigers re­main among the chasers af­ter a 17-8 win over Che­sham No­mads, who dropped into the no man’s land of mid-ta­ble.

Mean­while, Buck­ing­ham are the new lead­ers of Di­vi­sion Three af­ter beat­ing Che­sham 1879 2s 15-9 and leapfrog­ging for­mer lead­ers Holmer Green, who lost by the same score to an im­prov­ing Bea­cons­field Tro­jans.

Ayles­bury 2s shot up to third with a crush­ing 19-4 win over Bisham, but have played sev­eral more games than teams around them.
