Ross Ranked Squash No. 1 U17
Penn Charter swimmer Reece Whitley, recently honored as Sports Illustrated's SportsKid of the Year, is not alone in the national spotlight.
Squash sensation Elisabeth Ross, a ninth grader, is ranked No. 1 in the USA in the U17 category!
PC coach Damon Leedale-Brown said Elisabeth earned the top spot thanks to recent performances in National Junior Circuit events in San Francisco (first place) and Baltimore (third place). Come March, the NJC championships will be held at Harvard and Elisabeth will be a top seed.
Leedale-Brown described Elisabeth's rise as "a fantastic achievement."
On social media, her dad, Bill, for good reason, was rather excited. He posted: After many, many years of hard work, E is #1 in the USA!!!!!! Congrats to our daughter!!! The hard work paid off!!! Her reign as #1 in the USA – however brief it may be – is the culmination of fierce determination and much grueling work, learning player by player how to defeat each one . . . . I'm basking in the accomplishment of this near impossible feat!!
Congrats to Elisabeth/E!
