McCormack posts solid showing at nationals


Angel McCormack just couldn’t shake Hannah Treleaven.
The local player bookended three wins at the Canadian Junior Squash Championships in Calgary with losses to Treleaven, including a tight 3-0 setback (11-9, 11-9, and 11-9) in the best-of-five girls’ under-13 consolation final.
After falling 11-6, 11-4, and 11-6 to Treleaven in her opening match, McCormack reeled off three-straight wins, sweeping Samantha Lawther 11-3, 11-6, and 18-16, Gillian Chick 11-1, 11-5, and 11-4, and Mackenzie Clapperton 11-9, 11-5, and 13-11 to earn a berth in the consolation showdown.
Anniss Seid, the other local squasher competing in Calgary, posted a 1-2 record in the boys’ under-17 division.
He fell 11-6, 11-9, and 11-5 to Farouk Sarmad on Friday afternoon to be eliminated from further contention.
