Both of Alberta squash teams finished their team events with a 4-1 record, finishing in the second position of the preliminary round. They each faced Ontario at the Gary W. Harris Canada Games Centre in what proved to be very exciting and close matches throughout the evening.

In the semifinals today, the men faced off against Ontario, and the team lost their round 4-0, advancing to the bronze medal match. The medal match is slated for Saturday, March 2 at 2 pm, against Quebec.

In the women’s semifinals, the women of Alberta left all they had on the court but ultimately fell short of advancing to the gold medal match. They lost 3-1 to their opponents from Ontario, with two of the matches going to the fifth and ultimate sets in a dual that lasted over 3.5 hours.

The bronze medal matches are scheduled for Saturday. Tomorrow, Bethany Churchill will play for bronze in the individual women’s competition.
