Team Saskatchewan wrapped up competition at the National Championships with 5th in both Men’s and Women’s Open singles. Brothers faced off on the Men’s side, as Tim Landeryou took on younger brother James for 5th place. James continued his strong play from earlier in the week while Tim seemed to struggle, allowing the younger sibling to take the contest in 2 games. On the Women’s side, the 5th place match was also an all SK affair, with current national team member Christine Richardson taking on provincial champion and former national team member Linda Ellerington. Youth again took the contest as Christine moved well and controlled the court to take 5th place in 2 games. SK athletes Lee Connell and Nathaniel Husulak faced off for 7th place in Men’s Open, with Nate winning in two. Other open athletes included Chris Exner and Danielle Drury, who finished 13th and 9th respectively.
Team SK did quite well in other categories at the National Championships as well this past week. Lorne Renouf and Graham Tamaki each finished the week with a Silver Medal (Lorne in the Men’s 45+ and Graham in the Men’s 50+). Lorne also narrowly missed another medal in Men’s 40+, finishing in 4th place while Darcy Shaw, Bruce Robinson, and Susan Dauk all placed 6th in their respective age brackets (Men’s 45+, Men’s 60+, and Women’s A). Darrell Davis finished 10th in Men’s B.
Congratulations to all SK athletes that competed this past week! We at the SRA hope you had a great season and wish you a wonderful summer. Final results are listed below, but can also be found on the Tournament Website.
