This year's Canada Winter Games saw both team and individual competition, which took place February 23 – March 1 in Prince George, BC. The 2015 CWG Alberta squash team was proudly represented by Arthur Hough (coach), Leona Faller (manager), Gillian Chick, Bethany Churchill, Tara Shannon, Hannah Treleaven, Noel Heaton, Brock Janzer, Mike Mehl, and Brett Schille.
The individual competition wrapped up with 3 Alberta athletes placing in the top 6. Brett Schille earned 6th in the male competition, while Tara Shannon won 5th place in the female division. Michael Mehl won a very exciting, 5-game final, earning the gold medal.
The team competition was arguably even more exciting for Alberta squash fans! The girls’ team made it to the bronze finals, where they played a close encounter with Manitoba, tying on matches (2-2), but winning in games (10-7) and points (161-134). The boys’ team followed up by keeping fans on the edge of their seats during the gold final against Ontario. This encounter also tied on matches (2-2), but also tied in games (6-6). The tie-breaking criteria came down to total points; Alberta winning the gold by only 2-points (108-106)!! This is Alberta’s best performance since the 2003 Canada Winter Games!
Congratulations to all athletes who participated in the Games!
