Peter Russell, a top-10 player from Winnipeg, looked to smash a serve yesterday afternoon during the men’s ‘A’ Open final of the 31st-annual La Place Rendez-Vous squash tournament. Russell used some blistering shots to defeat Fort Frances native Anniss Seid 3-0 to claim the tourney title. Other winners included Graham Crew (men’s ‘A’), Randy Wilson (men’s ‘B’), James Wood (men’s ‘C’ Open), Dave Galloway (men’s ‘C’), and Mary-Beth Tkachuk (ladies’ ‘B’) while there was a three-way tie between Heather Wright, Katie Beninger, and Summer Struve for the ladies’ ‘C’ title. Owen Riches (junior ‘A’ Open) and Aiden Jean (junior ‘A’) rounded out the division champs.
