NSW SQUASH JUNIOR AGE CHAMPIONSHIPS 2012
State Ranking Event Matrix Rating
After three days of exciting squash at the Coffs Harbour Squash Centre the NSW Squash State Junior Championships finished on a high with a fantastic number of finals in front of a capacity crowd on Sunday afternoon. Honours were shared across the state with players from as far as Goulburn to the south and Parkes and Moree to west and all coastal regions taking part.
Tournament organisers were particularly delighted with the turnout of 124 competitors, especially the new players in the younger age groups who put in some great results and showed that squash is flourishing and growing in popularity among the primary school ages.
There were some very special moments at the presentations with Tamika Saxby taking out the Under 19 Girls Championship bringing to a close a junior state career where she has won an amazing 9 State Championships from 2003 to 2012. Tamika has already moved quickly into the senior women's ranks and is now full time at the Australian Institute of Sport in Brisbane.
Brad Williams put together a cracking speech after taking out the Boys under 19's Championship and left no doubt that the NSW Bluetongues will be vocal and ready at the Australian Championships in September.
Geoff Salmon of Dubbo won the Under 17 Boys division proving to strong for his opposition taking out the event without dropping a game. The Salmon family enjoyed further celebrations when younger brother Jacob took out the Boys Under 13 Championship against Liam Bruno of Moree.

Day One Results
Day One opened with a fantastic crowd taking in some great matches in all age divisions.
The under 17 Boys Division among the best with some outstanding efforts by the players.
Nic Greenland (Maclean) winning in five over Dominique Braham (Willoughby) was a real treat going the full distance with both players receiving plenty of praise at the end of a five game thriller. Tomorrow's round should prove just as exciting.
Under 11 Girls has a whole host of new talents and some great battles. Whilst not punishing the ball the players showed great composure on court with Laura Moloney (Coutts Crossing) and Kasey Nightingale (Parkes) showing the way early.
The 19 Boys saw Josh Stack-Masula Qld move through with a four set win against Luck Collins (Singleton) Michael Badenhorst Defeated Branigan Swan in straight games and Luc Rance Qld defeated Geoff Murphy (Bathurst) in a very entertaining four sets.
