Ross Wins National Junior Champs Tour

Some people head for San Francisco because they want to ride a cable car and/or walk across the Golden Gate Bridge.

And then there's Elisabeth Ross, a PC ninth-grader. She made the lengthy trek last weekend because she wanted to win a national squash championship.

Mission accomplished. In impressive fashion.

Competing in the U17 age group of the National Junior Championship Tour, Ross stormed to five straight victories and came close to achieving perfection. She triumphed four times by 3-0 and once (in a semifinal) by 3-1.

Her opponents hailed from, in order, Santa Barbara, California; Short Hills, New Jersey; Gladwyne, Pa. (Mia Rosini, a student at Harriton High); San Carlos, California; and Sammamish, Washington.

Coach Damon Leedale-Brown noted, "This performance continues an excellent run of form for Elisabeth and she is now currently ranked #4 in the country in the Girls U17 age group."

Congrats, Elisabeth!
