Congratulations to Lee Connell, Danielle Drury, Nathaniel Husulak, Tim Landeryou, and Christine Richardson, who were selected to National Teams based on their results from this past season.
Connell, Drury, and Husulak were selected to the National Development Team following their finishes at the two selection events and the National Championships. Husulak didn’t crack the top 5, but was consistent, finishing 6th, 6th, and 7th at the three events respectively. Connell also made the quarter finals at both selection events, finishing 7th and 8th, before having a difficult run at Nationals which saw him finish 13th. Drury secured her spot on the team with a 9th place finish at the National Championships.
Landeryou and Richardson suffered slow starts to the season, both finishing 5th at the first selection event. Richardson finished 5th at the second selection event as well, with Landeryou improving his result to 3rd. At the National Championships though, they would both climb higher, as Richardson got revenge on her two losses during the season by defeating Michele Morissette in the quarter finals to finish 4th. With the absence of defending National Champion Mike Green, Landeryou made the final, but fell to #1 seed Vincent Gagnon, finishing 2nd.
Richardson and Landeryou also represented Canada at 2 international events this past season: the World Racquetball Championships, held in Burlington, Ontario, and the Pan American Sport Festival, held in Guadalajara, Mexico.
