Northfield Racquet and Fitness Club (Waterloo, Ontario) is
poised to host the 2017 Harrow Canadian University and College
Squash Championships March 3rd to 5th.
Northfield Club is fresh off of hosting the 2017 Ontario
University Association (OUA) Team Championships which saw the
University of Western Ontario men’s team capture their 34th
title in a row and Queens University women’s team capture their
3rd title in a row.
The local crowd was treated to some amazing matches setting the
stage perfectly for this weekend as players vie for top honors
in Canadian Intercollegiate Squash.
Leading the charge in the men’s open draw is first seed David
Baillargeon who is representing McGill University. David is
a local favourite with the Northfield members through his play
at the BDO Northfield Cup. David splits his time between playing
on the PSA tour and studying mechanical engineering.
Mohanad Hekal of Ryerson University enters the
competition as the second seed and no doubt has his eye on the
prize! Last year Hekal seeded sixth, finished third, losing only
to the eventual champion, Cameron Seth. Hekal has wins in the
Jester’s University League over 3/4 seeds Patrick Morkus
(McMaster)and Matt Henderson (University of Western
Morkus laid claim to the 2017 OUA Men’s player of the year while
leading McMaster to a second-place finish. Henderson lead UWO to
the biggest win of their season against Navy (at London Squash)
with a 3-2 win in the deciding match in a 5-4 win overall.
Henderson earned a very rare ‘Harrow- Player of the Week’ honor
in the USA College Squash Association league for a Canadian,
playing on a Canadian team.
Alison Richmond of Queens University is the top seed and
coming into this event RED HOT! Richmond is undefeated in her
university play so far, this season (both in the Jester’s
University League and the OUA Team Championships), earning her
2017 OUA Women’s Player of the year honors. Richmond is the
defending Canadian University and College Squash Champion.
Second seed, Erin Roberts (formerly teammates with
Richmond), is now doing her graduate studies in Biomedical
engineering at University of Calgary. Erin has had a year to
think about her semi-finals departure from the 2016 event.
Roberts lost to Richmond in a ‘3-1’ nail bitter, 8-11, 11-9,
64 players will descend on the Northfield club competing in
open, a, b, c & d categories and representing 12 different
Play gets underway on Friday at 5:20pm and wraps up on Sunday
with the women's open final at 12:20 and men's open final at
1:00pm. Semi finals (Saturday afternoon) and finals will be
streamed live over the Northfield Club facebook page.
